Local Race Team Awaits Impending Sale

Posted: Updated:
Spartanburg, SC -

Spartanburg-based Phoenix Racing could be sold within the week as team owner James Finch has grown weary of funding the team with his personal finances.

A new owner is expected to bring much needed sponsorships and there are reports indicating the Turner-Scott operation, which has teams competing on the Nationwide and truck series, is the front-runner.

The team will continue with its Sprint Cup Series effort for the remainder of the season while ceasing its Nationwide Series competition.

Team manager Steve Barkdoll says he expects the organization to remain at its current location after the sale.
