Phylrich Sponsored Porsche Team Takes 3rd Place at the Rolex 24 at Daytona

DSC_7213-LJanuary 28, 2013 (Daytona Beach, Fla.) – The local team made good as the Phylrich sponsored no. 38 BGB / Luna-C Porsche Cayman GX.R landed on the podium in this weekend’s 51st Rolex 24 at Daytona.

This was the first attempt for the team, based in nearby Ormond Beach, Florida, at the world-famous endurance contest. Contesting the new GX class in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, the driving lineup of Lee Davis, Ryan Eversley, Eric Foss, Jeff Mosing, and team principal John Tecce would steer the car to finish third in the GX class, completing 614 laps of the 3.56 mile track.

“After competing in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge for several years, and winning the drivers’ championship last year, we wanted to take a shot at the GX class with a strong driver lineup,” said Tecce. There’s nothing more that my team, drivers and fans could have done to make this entire experience more rewarding. I couldn’t have done any of this without them and I’m so happy I was able to share the spot on the podium with these guys. We’ve had tremendous help from RSS / Road Sport Supply… and their parts worked perfectly to the finish.”

“Competing in the Rolex 24 at Daytona was incredible, and to do it with guys that I consider friends made it even better,” said Foss. “Being asked to help these guys out in their rookie year was an honor and I couldn’t be happier about getting on the podium. Standing on the podium in Daytona is a highlight of my racing career.”
