"Won't be Fooled again"

"Meet the new Boss...Same as the Old Boss !!"

No 'VP Director of Short Track Operations', no "Director of TRACK PR", no corporate heads, just a short track paying a whole lot of money !!

"Clash at the Can " paid $8000 + to the winner, Billy Decker !

Winner of the "GOBRECHT MEMORIAL" WON $7000 !

Winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial won $10,000 not $300 !!

Look at what Fonda, another short track paid  $9500!!

I recently sent a message to Scott Pacich commenting about "Where racing went wrong". Scott picked up on it , added his racing memories, along with his father's racing endeavors, and came up with this column........

For Immediate Release:
February 5, 2014

Contact: Ramsey Poston

Phoenix Racing is now HScott Motorsports
Name change effective immediately

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (February 5, 2014) - Harry Scott Jr. announced today 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 unveiled 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." 

To learn more about the newly rebranded team, its drivers and partners, please visit You can also keep up with the team via its Facebook page, at, and on Twitter (@TeamHSM51 and @TeamHSM52) and Instagram (TeamHSM51).

Upon purchasing the team last year, Scott pledged to establish a team with a focus on the future and eventually competing for a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. During this past offseason, HScott Motorsports signed Justin Allgaier to drive the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet SS fulltime and Bobby Labonte to drive the No. 52 Chevrolet SS for a number of races, including the Daytona 500. HScott Motorsports also expanded their relationship with Hendrick Motorsports, which historically has been providing engines to the team. 

Allgaier has four starts for HScott Motorsports and will compete for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year honors after finishing fifth in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship points. Labonte, the 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) champion, has won 21 NSCS races in his career, which started in 1991, and will bring veteran leadership to HScott Motorsports this season.

The team also hired NSCS veteran Steve Addington to serve as competition director and the crew chief for the No. 51 driven by Allgaier. Jimmy Elledge, who served as interim crew chief for Allgaier in 2013, remains with the team and will be crew chief for Labonte's No. 52 team.

James Finch, former owner of Phoenix Racing, has remained a trusted advisor to the team and will be listed as the owner of Labonte's No. 52 Chevy. The No. 51 BRANDT Chevrolet SS and No. 52 HScott Motorsports Chevrolet SS will both compete in the season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, February 23. 

About HScott Motorsports

HScott Motorsports was established in 1989 as Phoenix Racing. The team is now owned and operated by Harry Scott Jr. and competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Scott purchased the team from long-time owner James Finch in September 2013 with the goal to develop talented young drivers and partner with dedicated sponsors to build a championship-contending team.
