While Gibbs’ performance is on the mark, he even won the Xfinity Championship this year, but his reputation as a person and a driver is too controversial, which increases a lot of pressure on Gibbs’ grandson if he sits in the 18 car.

With Busch having driven 18 of the last 15 years, it’s clear that even after his departure, the two-time Cup champion will still be associated with that number for fans. And if fans notice Ty Gibbs running at 18, it will only add insult to injury and put a lot of pressure on the young replacement.
