“Joe Gibbs Racing is an exciting partner because of its dedication to engineering and performance,” said John Evans, president of Power Tools at Ingersoll Rand. “Joe Gibbs Racing is one of the few shops that builds its cars from the ground up and Ingersoll Rand is proud to associate with a partner that exhibits such high quality standards.”
