Finch Adds Labonte on to Phoenix Racing

By  | 

Local businessman James Finch is attempting to increase his chances of getting a win at Daytona this year with Phoenix Racing.

While Finch sold his ownership of the team this summer to Harry Scott, Jr., he's still on board as the chairman emeritus and came up with the idea to bring back 2000 Cup champ Bobby Labonte to the Phoenix Racing team for a second car in the Daytona 500.

Finch founded the team back in 1989 and in the press release, was mentioned by Scott as someone who "continues to be a valuable part of our team."
