The 20-year-old will drive the No. 54 car out of the Joe Gibbs Racing stable. The team was formerly the No. 18 driven by Kyle Busch.
Gibbs has been sponsored by Monster Energy since 2019.
“Monster Energy has been a great partner for me and Joe Gibbs Racing, and we’re stoked to have them on board for the majority of the races in 2023,” Ty Gibbs said.
Gibbs added, “I can’t thank the Monster Energy team enough, especially Rodney Sacks, (Chairman and Co-CEO), Hilton Schlosberg (Vice Chairman and Co-CEO) Mitch Covington (Senior Vice President of Sports Marketing), Dave Gowland (Vice President of Motorsport Marketing), Tom Norwood (Director of NASCAR Marketing) and Eldena Nawrocki (Marketing) for all their support. They are behind me 100 percent and I love representing them.”
Last year, Gibbs ran 15 races in the NASCAR Cup Series as he filled in for injured driver Kurt Busch via 23XI Racing. He had a best finish of 10th which he claimed at Michigan.
“Monster is honored and excited to announce our partnership with JGR and Ty Gibbs,” Mitch Covington said. “We have enjoyed a great relationship over the years and this season with Ty will be fun. Ty has a tremendous work ethic and has proven his talent over the past few years, and we have all the confidence in the world he will continue his growth and success.”
The 2023 season begins this weekend at the LA Coliseum.
