Confirmed: Finch Has Found Prospective Buyer For Phoenix Racing
Phoenix Racing GM Steve Barkdoll on Friday confirmed a report that James Finch, the NASCAR team's owner, "has found a prospective buyer" for the organization and "hopes to have the transaction complete by mid-July." Finch has fielded cars in NASCAR's top two series since '89. Barkdoll: "We're working on the final details" (NASCAR.com, 6/28).
