It was a strong year for Phoenix Promotions clients. Three of the five Grand American titles went to clients of the marketing powerhouse.
Phoenix Promotions is a promotional firm which handles website design, public relations, printing, creative design, and on-line marketing campaigns. Clients they represent include some of the most prolific drivers and teams in sportscar racing competition. In 2004 those drivers and teams took home titles in three of the five classes of Grand American competition.
In the Grand Am Cup Sport Touring class, SpeedSource Race Engineering had a stellar year with their first year Mazda RX-8 program. With four wins in the brand new rotary powered Mazda RX-8, Sylvain Tremblay and David Haskell brought home the Sport Touring Team and Driver's Championship. It was Sylvain's second Professional Championship, and Haskell's first. SpeedSource has been a client of Phoenix Promotions since the 2001 season. To learn more about SpeedSource, including their turn-key ready to race Mazda RX-8's offered for sale, visit www.SpeedSourceInc.com.
In the Grand Am Cup Grand Sport class, TheRaceSiteRacing.com took home the title with an amazing six wins. Craig Stanton took home the driver's Championship and the team took home first and second in the Team Championship. With more than thirty cars running at each race, the feat of 1-2 in the Team title is quite impressive. In addition it was the fourth straight season that the team has won a Grand Am Cup Triple Crown Championship (Driver, Team, and Manufacturer Championship). Phoenix Promotions handles all the team's promotional needs for the team's Grand Am Cup operations, as well as their Rolex campaign, Planet Earth Motorsports. Learn more about the team at www.TheRaceSiteRacing.com.
In the Grand American Rolex competition, the TPC Racing effort dominated the Super Grand Sport class in much the same way that TheRaceSiteRacing.com dominated Grand Sport competition. They took home first and second in the Team Championship and placed their drivers first, second, and third in the Driver's Championship. Phoenix Promotions has several clients on the TPC Racing effort, including the team (www.TPC-Racing.com), Driver co-Champion Andy Lally (www.AndyLally.com), sportscar ace Randy Pobst (www.RandyPobst.com), and Team Manager Mike Johnson (www.ArchAngelMotorsports.com).
In addition to his role as Team Manager at TPC Racing, Mike Johnson also served as Team Manager in the Intersport Racing effort that won the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LMP2 class. The Le Mans 24 Hours is one of the top three prestigious endurance races in the world.
Randy Pobst, in addition to his effort with TPC-Racing, also helped lead Champion Audi to a Manufacturer's Championship in the Speed World Challenge GT Championship. Randy scored the GT title in 2003, and his strong showings this season in the factory assisted effort helped lead Audi to the title over the heavily funded factory Cadillac effort.
Phoenix Promotions would like to thank all of its clients for a great 2004 season. All indications look to show that the 2005 season will be just as successful for the list of clients that Phoenix represents.
