2016 Season Update

Rosamond, CA (May 20, 2016) – It’s with much disappointment that we must announce we are suspending our run for the 2016 GTA Pro/Am Street Class Championship.  After a 3rd place finish at Buttonwillow in Round 1 with blowing a motor, the team has been working hard to try to find additional sponsorship, work with our new partner, TJPerformance to get the motor rebuilt, as well as working on cleaning up wiring, thermal, and aero on the car.

 

However, Chris has been struggling with shoulder problems for the better part of a year now, and after consulting with 2 different doctors and partaking in physical therapy, he will be headed in next month for surgery to fix the damage in his right shoulder.  It’s been hard for him to be in the car for a full 2 day event and be able to properly and quickly get in or out of the car by the end of the second day.  Its an out patient procedure, and his recovery time won’t be known until the doctor can see what all has to be repaired.  This means, with rounds 2 and 3 being 6 and 8 weeks after surgery, that  we will miss the remaining races on the Pro/Am tour in August.  We would like to try and make Super Lap Battle in November, but that is all based on the doctor signing off that Chris is healthy and ready to be back in the car.  “As much as I want to be back in now and driving, I know I need to let this heal right and not rush myself back in so that I will be able to drive 100%.  It doesn’t do me any good to come back to soon and risk making it worse on myself, and putting out a sub-par performance for our team, sponsors, and partners” Chris said.

 

Thank you for all your support, and your understanding that this season will be a bit abridged.  We are hoping to have Phoenix back together come July, and may look to put another skilled driver in the car to help shake her out.  We will continue to update on our progress, and as we work towards finding additional opportunities for this year and beyond.  Thank you.
