Former NASCAR champion Bobby Labonte will drive a second car for the Phoenix Racing in the Daytona 500 on February 23, 2014 at Daytona International Speedway. The team made the announcement Tuesday.
Labonte drove for Phoenix Racing for 13 races in the No. 09 in 2010 and for one race at Michigan International Speedway in 2013 in the No. 51. Harry Scott, Jr. purchased the team from James Finch in 2013.
“James continues to be a valuable part of our team,” Scott said in an emailed press release. “When he came up with the idea of running Bobby in a second car, I jumped at the opportunity to bring him back into the fold. Bobby is a veteran driver that can also provide valuable insight and leadership for Phoenix Racing.” MORE>>>
