Phoenix Racing changes name of team


Phoenix Racing is now a name of the past, as on Wednesday new team owner Harry Scott Jr. announced on Facebook that Phoenix Racing has been renamed HScott Motorsports.  The rebranding of the team comes five months after Scott purchased the team from James Finch.

As part of this announcement, the company revealed its new branding, including a new logo, website and social media accounts.

“I am truly looking forward to the 2014 season,” said Scott. “We have two great drivers in place with Justin Allgaier and Bobby Labonte, we’ve partnered with great sponsors and the team is ready and excited for Daytona. Now that we have launched the HScott Motorsports brand, everything is in place. We can’t wait for the season to get started and to get back to racing.”

Justin Allgaier to drive the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet SS fulltime and Bobby Labonte will be driving the No. 52 Chevrolet SS for a number of races, starting with the Daytona 500.

Steve Addington will serve as competition director and the crew chief for the No 51. Jimmy Elledge will be the crew chief for the No. 52 and Labonte.
