Ty Gibbs, Driver of the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry TRD

“Homestead is a great track and a lot of fun to drive. I’ve only raced there once in Cup and once in Xfinity, so it’s still sort of new to me. But I know that Chris Gayle and the 54 boys will bring a good Monster Energy Toyota Camry TRD.”
