JGR Close To Signing Extension With Toyota

Joe Gibbs Racing is close to signing a long-term extension with Toyota within the next month, according to ESPN.com. There has been speculation that JGR could switch to Dodge, but this news makes those rumors seem less likely.

JGR President JD Gibbs said that the team working on a deal that would keep them with Toyota “for a long time to come.”

Dodge is looking for a team to anchor its program after Penske Racing, the only major team that currently fields Dodges in the Sprint Cup Series, decided to switch to Ford next season.

JGR’s contract with Toyota is up at the end of the season, making them a target for Dodge. Dodge has also approached Richard Petty Motorsports, as it searches for a program to replace Penske.

In related news, Toyota plans to unveil its 2013 Sprint Cup Camry on May 22nd at Toyota Racing Development in North Carolina.
