Who will be in the 02 Gibbs Car?
So if you had to speculate... who do you think will be driving the fourth Gibbs car running the number 02?

If you don't know.... on the Farm Bureau Insurance Racing Schedule for 2009, they have the 02 car scheduled to be run for the first time at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. If you look at it, it says "TBD" on the driver.

RE: Who will be in the 02 Gibbs Car?
Brad Coleman has driven the #20 Nationwide Car pretty well and he's been with Gibbs a long time. But, Sprint Cup is big leauge so maybe a "Hired Gun" big name.

NO KESA-LOSSY!!!!!!!!

RE: Who will be in the 02 Gibbs Car?
I've been wondering who will be the driver for the 02 car for a while now. But from the looks of it right now, it seems it's likely that it is going to be Marc Davis. But just for 2009, not sure about 2010 and beyond.

On the Marc Davis Wikipedia page it says "Davis will return to the Camping World East series in 2009 and drive selected Sprint Cup races in the #02 Farm Bureau-sponsored Toyota Camry as a fourth car late in the 2009 season."

Offcourse anyone can edit Wikipedia entries... so it may just be a "rumor", and not 100% fact.

Oh, that is a mystery. I don't know who Marc Davis is but, wouldn't it make sense for Brad Coleman to drive it? He's done pretty well with the 20 in Nationwide races that Joey hasn't driven in. Qualifies well, too.

Marc Davis was a team mate with Joey and a developmental driver at the same time as Joey.

Oh! Was he driving in yesterday's race? I think I saw somebody on TV that looked like him...
I could be so very wrong though.

RE: Who will be in the 02 Gibbs Car?
Short term it could be a variety of people, Marc Davis,Brad Coleman,David Gilliland (rumoured) but there is one possibility short term that i don't think anyone has thought of..Bobby Labonte. He's been rumored to be leaving yates all season and what a better fit then to return to his old team to close out his career. Bobby would also be a great addition for Joey as it would provide a veteran for him to lean on. That's short term starting next year. At this coming race i'd have to say either Coleman or Davis have the inside track.

Long term: Matt Dibenedetto. Nobody is good enough to hold him off long term

I think they said Gilliland is driving the 02 for the 4 races this year. If they expand next season I believe Labonte is getting released and would be a great addition to this organization. I true blast from the past.

Love to see Labonte back with Gibbs in the #02 far as Gilliland dont see that really happening if you ask me he sould of stay in the Busch series another year or two just cause he won a race out of no where he sould of not just came to cup i think if he really waited he still be at Yates and i really dont see him with a team next year

RE: Who will be in the 02 Gibbs Car?
Haven't really heard much of what is going on with this but there are a few drivers that would be a good fit for that seat but Bobby would do great for Joey for sure. I like Coleman as well so who knows but I'm sure it will be a good fit either way.
