Car owner Joe Gibbs is sharing his team’s first Sprint Cup championship since 2005 with all his employees. He invited all those who work at JGR to Las Vegas for this week’s celebration of Kyle Busch’s championship, taking care of their flight and hotel.

About 220 people will be in Las Vegas. A plane full of JGR employees was scheduled to arrive Thursday morning. Other team officials and members arrived in Las Vegas earlier this week.

There will still be some to be back at the shop as they prepare for the 2016 season. Also, Denny Hamlin, recovering from knee surgery this week, is not in Las Vegas.
