My Trip to Joe Gibbs Racing!
Lucky me, I got to go visit the Joe Gibbs Racing facility in North Carolina. As you probably know, Joe Gibbs is an incredibly well-respected man in America, because of his success in so many areas of life and sport and business. He’s coached NFL Superbowl winning teams, started successful NASCAR teams, has tremendous relationships in business …. and two seasons ago, along with son Coy, started his foray into the world of supercross and motocross.
Their race shop is known in motorcycling. Known for being the biggest and the best!
I was lucky enough to be invited for a visit, and, it also coincided with top supercross / motocross rider Josh Grant‘s birthday!
Here we go!
Denny Hamlin’s race car being worked on in the Joe Gibbs race shop.
Coy Gibbs shows us how to fix a NASCAR frame after a little race rubbing!
Think this shop can be any cleaner? It is immaculate!
Oh .. wait …Ã‚Â I think a see some a speck of dust! Somebody get a broom! : )
I’d love to walk into this race shop everyday! And ….. mmmmmmm …. M & Ms!
FMF was kind enough to send JG (Josh Grant) this awesome Happy Birthday Banner as a surprise!
Josh was so pumped & his step dad almost cried when we opened it up. (I actually saw a tear!)
FMF – you rock!
Josh tries to re-enact his Anahiem 1 Supercross win pose!
Behind him was the limo that took all of us to Red Rock, a very popular restaurant in the NASCAR / JGR MX town!
I wonder what this bad boy cost!?!?!
The Life (and house) of a NASCAR Driver! So many houses in this area are incedibly beautiful!
Josh was shocked at all the birthday plans his friends came up with! He was thumbs up all night!

An inside peek of what the NASCAR drivers race in. Can’t be claustrophobic in this sport!
Here is a shot of Kyle new car. All stripped down and ready for some mechanic lovin’!
Joey sits right here! Pretty cool!
Me & Cody Cooper. Can you tell I’m the one on the right? : )
Cody is team-mates with Josh on the Joe Gibbs racing team.
Cody celebrated Josh’s birthday with us. Fun fact, not only are Josh and Cody team-mate, they are very close friends!
Wouldn’t you love your accomplishments to be displayed like this?
Almost done with body work. Close to be brought to the track! NASCAR is very fascinating.
Ummm …. where are the wheels?!
FMF, Skull Candy, Ethika and Metel Mulisha sent Josh some fun Birthday presents!
All dressed up and ready to go! Happy 23rd birthday Josh Grant!

Ron From The Red Rock gifts a bottle of Crystal to every NASCAR driver after a win.
One of the perks of being on the Joe Gibbs Race Team: After winning the Anahiem 1 Supercross
Ron had a botlte waiting for JG. And he had it ready as we walked in!
Silly Supercross / Motocross racer didnt know what to do with it … JG opened up the bottle,
shook it and sprayed it all over his friends and family! Great!
The staff at the restaurant wasn’t quite sure what to do either : )
L – R: Alex (JGs best friend & mechanic) JG, “Turtle”, Tyler, Frobe, me
All-in-all, my trip to North Carolina was an A+! I got to celebrate my friend’s birthday … do some sight seeing,
and take a tour of the world famous Joe Gibbs Race shop! Thank you to everyone who made my trip possible!
Now when can I come back and take a NASCAR rig out?!?
PS: I’d like to wish a very special Birthday to my dear friend Bonee T! Hope this year is the best one yet girl! I love you!
