John Gibson Runs Well, Has Tough Finish at Hickory for Team Mitigator

HICKORY, NC (April 22, 2013) – – After a strong run at the beginning of the race, John Gibson and his Gibson Motorsports team came home a disappointing 12th at the Catawba Valley 250 at Hickory Motor Speedway this past Saturday.

After having to replace the transmission in John’s #13 Mitigator Ford Fusion late Friday night before heading to Hickory, the Gibson Motorsports team was cautiously optimistic going into Saturday’s morning practice.

“We just want to thank Buzze Racing for renting us a transmission at the last minute like they did. Without it, we probably wouldn’t have been able to run this race. We look forward to seeing what we can do with it,” John said early Saturday morning.

The afternoon qualifying session left John and his Mitigator Ford Fusion starting the race in 8th place.

As soon as the green flag fell, John began making his way towards to the front of the field. A little over fifty laps into the race John was holding strong in the top five and by lap 70, he had climbed his way up to third.

The team took four tires, fuel, and made adjustments during the halfway break, and restarted 11th. John was happy with the adjustments and his MitiGator Ford Fusion was up to 6th by lap 185 when they were involved in an incident with Gus Dean on the backstretch.

“I was really happy with the MitiGator Ford Fusion after we made some midrace adjustments. We were moving through the field when we got turned. Although we didn’t finish where we wanted to, I feel really confident about this car and I look forward to racing it again,” John said. “I also just want to thank our sponsor, MitiGator. We love having them on board and appreciate their ongoing support.”

After the incident, Gibson Motorsports experienced battery issues and couldn’t get the car to re-fire. They finished in 12th place. The Gibson Motorsports team hopes to be back on the track at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA in June.

Familiar Surroundings With New Series For John Gibson and Mitigator

HICKORY, North Carolina (August 20, 2012) – – While John Gibson and the Gibson Motorsports team are still relatively new to the Pro All Star Series (PASS) tour, they will feel right at home this weekend when the green flag waives for Saturday night’s Over The Mountain 150 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

And it might just be the grounds of Hickory Motor Speedway that the Statesville, North Carolina-based team needs to turn their luck around in their second-ever PASS event. Last month, the team made their debut at the legendary South Boston (Va.) Speedway but their promising night was cut short when the brakes failed which resulted in an unplanned meeting with the wall.

With South Boston in the rearview mirror, the team has bounced back nicely and is confident they will rebound and put their No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion in the hunt this weekend.

“We’re glad to be going to Hickory this weekend,” said 28-year old Gibson. “South Boston was a blow for sure, but we’re a small team where “give up” is not in our dictionary. I have a ton of laps at Hickory and I feel that should be a benefit to us this weekend. It’s going to be a competitive race, there’s no questioning that. We just need to go out there, do our best and look to bring home a good finish for MitiGator and everyone who supports Gibson Motorsports.”

Speaking of Mitigator, it’s because of their support in and outside the racecar that is allowing the former Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series star the opportunity to make his presence known.

“It was a hard hit at South Boston, but my seat was padded with MitiGator, so I was able to climb from the car without a scratch,” Gibson added. “MitiGator is the top of the line. On top of that, it’s because of their belief and support of our race team that we’re able to give the Pro All Star Series another try this weekend. Hopefully, we can stay on the lead lap and bring our Ford Fusion home with a nice top-10 finish.”

MitiGator is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people from hi-speed, hi-impact assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time.

With four starts at the 0.363-mile oval, Gibson knows what to expect on Saturday night.

“A lot of patience will be important for the race,” he said. “It’s a tough place to pass, but the track provides a lot of great racing. You have to be able to get your car to have a good drive off the corners in one and two and then be able to have it hug the bottom of the racetrack in turn four. We have a setup that we’ll start with and hopefully the changes we make will be the right ones.”

Practice for the Over The Mountain 150 kicks off on Saturday, September 22 at 2:00 p.m. with qualifying to follow at 4:30 p.m. Racing kicks-off at 6:00 p.m. with the Pro All Star Series set to be the final feature of the night following the Super Limited Late Models contest.

John Gibson Back Racing CARS Pro Cup in Mitigator Ford Fusion

John Gibson Back In The Gas; Preparing For More 

“Team Returns To CARS Pro Cup Series; Prepares For PASS Invasion”  

STATESVILLE, North Carolina (June 28, 2012) – – After a brief sabbatical from Motorsports competition, John Gibson made his long awaited return to the CARS Pro Cup Series this past weekend at Caraway (N.C.) Speedway behind the wheel of the No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion.

Making his return to the series for the first time since 2010, Gibson and his John Gibson Racing (JGR) team approached the race with optimism, especially since his 47th career start would be his first at the Asheboro, North Carolina-based track.

Despite chasing the handling on their No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion throughout practice during the day, the team made some aggressive changes for qualifying in hopes of giving the Statesville, North Carolina native a balanced automobile for the CARS Pro Cup 250 presented by CV Products.

In time trials, Gibson negotiated the eighth quickest lap with the 12-car field boasting incredibly close lap times. Unfortunately, the avid racer informed his team that he lost his power steering during his two lap hustle forcing the veteran to raise the bar from behind the seat in extremely warm temperatures.

During his CAR Pro Cup return, Gibson utilized patience and aggression but impressively held his own on the track despite the circumstances battling against him and maneuvering a loose No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion. During the race’s first segment, Gibson lost a lap to the leaders but through adjustments on pit road and being the beneficiary of the “lucky dog”, the 27-year old battled back to finish the first segment ninth and on the lead circuit.

A mandatory 10-minute break allowed Gibson to confer with his crew about changes to make to their blue oval hoping for a better second half which consisted of 125 laps.

When racing resumed, Gibson was a man on a mission and it showed with his lap times and moves on the track. Despite still fighting a loose racecar, he had muscled his way to fifth. Inside the race’s final 50 laps, Gibson’s machine knocked sideways slapping the front stretch wall which knocked portions of the exhaust and crush panels loose. Giving his all for an additional 20 laps, the driver informed his team that the conditions were becoming unbearable behind the wheel forcing him to bring his automobile to pit lane where he would retire from the race and being scored in the eighth position in the overall rundown.

“I’m proud of everyone on the John Gibson Motorsports team for giving nothing less than 100 percent at Caraway,” he said. “We fought the loose condition all day and it finally just snapped near the end of the race and I tagged the wall. It knocked the exhaust loose, causing fumes to consume the racecar. That’s never a good sign and I wasn’t going to put myself or anyone else in danger out on the racetrack, so we just brought the car in. I want to thank Mitigator for stepping aboard and helping out for the race, it really means a lot to me and everyone who standings behind our small group.”

Last Saturday’s contest was an initial kick-off for Gibson and his team. Next month, the team will advance to the Pro All Star Series (PASS) when they compete in an event at The Motor Mile in Radford, Virginia.

“We’re looking forward to joining the PASS tour,” offered Gibson. “It’s going to be a new scene for us, but everyone that we’ve talked to has been incredibly easy-going and very helpful. I’m hoping that we’re able to have a good clean race with a strong finish. We’re excited about having Mitigator back aboard too.”
