Phoenix Racing Names Addington Crew Chief

Phoenix Racing announced that Steve Addington will serve as competition director for the team and crew chief of the #51 Chevy for the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The move brings experienced leadership to the team that will compete fulltime in 2014 under owner Harry Scott, Jr. "In my opinion Steve is the perfect guy for the job," said Scott. "He is part of the Chevrolet family, the Hendrick family and I feel fortunate that he is now part of our family. I also want to thank Jimmy Elledge for stepping in at a critical time this season and serving as the interim crew chief for the past six races. We look forward to hopefully working with Jimmy again down the road."

"I am thrilled to be part of the Phoenix Racing team and working with Harry," said Addington. "Harry has a vision to make this team a championship contender and I am excited to be part of it." Addington has served as a crew chief in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for ten years and has amassed 20 wins, 66 Top 5s and 105 Top 10s during that time. Scott purchased Phoenix Racing in September of this year from James Finch. Since then a number of drivers have piloted the #51 including Justin Allgaier, Michael McDowell and Kyle Larson. Additional information about the 2014 driver of the #51 Phoenix Racing Chevrolet and its sponsor will be announced at a later date.Phoenix Racing PR
