Now retired, but still helps son Gene Lee, who is a veteran winner himself in open-wheel racing. Formerly built and designed racing cars and engines. Todd's other sons are in the sport, as well as his grandson Zach, but one of his sons Terry was killed in a race crash in 2008. Still lives in Ohio. Gibson was a very good supermodified car racer, who adapted his car to become more roadster-like, similiar to the Indy Car designs in the mid-1960's, unusual at the time. It gave him a superior handling advantage and he won his third race after switching. He continued racing in the discipline until the 1980's.
