Johnny Sauter, Phoenix Racing Part Ways

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Mar. 17, 2008) - After a challenging start to the NASCAR Nationwide season and several key personnel changes including the release of both newly hired crew chiefs, Jon Wolfe and Newt Moore, Phoenix Racing and Johnny Sauter have amicably parted ways. Sauter who just last year brought a brand new team into the coveted top-35 in NASCAR Sprint Cup points, is available to another organization effective immediately. In 2007, Sauter gave Haas CNC Racing it's first top-5 finish in Cup competition and a 6th place finish in the All Star race at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

I was surprised to hear Phoenix Racing wanted to go in a different direction," Sauter said. "I felt like wed turned a corner on a few things and were just having some really bad luck. But personnel changes happen in racing, like the fact that two of the best crew chiefs in the business were released from the team two weeks ago, so Im not the only one who has felt the effects of these changes at Phoenix Racing. At the end of the day, Im a racer and all I want is to be competitive, whether its a truck, Nationwide or Cup team. I just want to be team player and feel like I can make a difference for an organization.
