Name change takes effect immediately
Five months after Harry Scott Jr. purchased Phoenix Racing from James Finch, the owner has officially changed the team name to HScott Motorsports.
The move was announced Wednesday, and rebranding efforts come in the form of a new logo, website and social media accounts.
"I am truly looking forward to the 2014 season," Scott said in a team release. "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."
Earlier this year, the team announced that Allgaier would be the full-time driver for the team's No. 51 Chevrolet. Steve Addington will serve as his crew chief, as well as the organization's competition director. Labonte will drive the No. 52 Chevrolet for a select number of races, according to the team, including the Daytona 500.
HScott Motorsports has also expanded its relationship with Hendrick Motorsports, which has provided engines to the team in the past.
