Short answer is yes. I believe Phoenix is going to run 2 STIs in Grand-AM GS this year. Trying to find more info, but here's a short blurb about the team.

I saw that also, but think it is 2010 or 2011. I hope I am wrong, but their website doesn't show anything new and they are not listed anywhere on the Grand-Am site.

They qualified 15th today, but to be fair they didn't get a chance to even really get the car warmed up. Roush Jr put Norman's Carrera into the wall just before the busstop on the 2nd lap and the session was black flagged. We'll see what they can really do tomorrow in the race.

They had 2 cars at the test at Daytona a few weeks ago, but I've only seen one this weekend. The race starts at 1:45 ET today, and is on SPEED next Saturday at 4:00 PM ET.

I just read on Bret Spaudes Instagram page (one of the Subaru Road Racing Teams Drivers) that after Daytona the team won't be running Subarus anymore and will be switching makes. I have no idea if thats true but that is what he posted.

That really sucks, I was hoping that wasn't true.

They had a decent run with Phoenix going back a few years.

I'm afraid all the 86's we will see in road racing will probably be Scion/Toyota sponsored as well.

The event was the final race for Phoenix Performance under the Subaru Road Racing Team banner. Team owner Joe Aquilante learned that Subaru would no longer be competing in the days leading up to the race, and immediately began working on options. Aquilante hopes to complete in the remainder of the 2013 season with a different GS manufacturer. His son Andrew Aquilante will remain as lead driver, with current co-driver Bret Spaude invited to continue to drive for the team. The team won four races in CTSCC competition, in addition to more than 20 races in other divisions.

I really like dogs, but Subaru should spend some of the money they spend on Dog and Love commercials on the SRRT.

Yeah, I think the BRZ coming along, as well as the 86 won't help the cause of Subaru throwing money @ the sti... The team has been pretty competitive, big time bummer!!!!

This, they sell as many turbo Imprezas as they can make, you figure they could show some love.

Also anyone know if Phoenix ever released a build sheet for their car? I'd be interested to know what diffs etc. they were running.
