While Joe Gibbs Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program might have given them a lot of success, it could be cut down for the 2022 season.
Joe Gibbs Racing success in the NASCAR industry is not only limited to Cup Series but Xfinity Series as well.
They had resounding success with Kyle Busch in the No. 54 Toyota, and Joe Gibbs’s grandson Ty is emerging to be a star in his own right. Additionally, they had Daniel Hemric and Brandon Jones and Harrison Burton as full-time drivers, all of whom advanced to the Round of 8.

Ty is probably going to get a full-time ride next season with Hemric leaving the team.
Even with the success that the team has enjoyed, they might need to cut down their car from four to three for the next season. And as per Bob Pockrass, only two of them will be field full-time drivers and the other with multiple drivers.
Expect JGR to have Jones and Gibbs in full-time Xfinity rides and a third car with multiple drivers. Would be mildly surprised if it has a fourth Xfinity car. https://t.co/KuRRrQYVZd

So, it seems that they will keep Brandon Jones and Gibbs as their full-time driver. Having completed his target of 100 Xfinity race wins, Busch won’t be returning to the Series again, while Burton will head to the Cup Series to wheel the No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing.
