Gibbs looks to extend Stewart contract, denies deal to leave GM
SONOMA, Calif. -- J.D. Gibbs would like to sign Tony Stewart to an extension that will keep the two-time Nextel Cup champion at Joe Gibbs Racing at least through 2011.
Stewart's contract at JGR runs through 2009.
But with a talented stable of young talent in the developmental pool and Stewart joking about retirement several times this season, the president of JGR would like to find out just what his marquee driver wants.
