SoutherLee Motor Racing and Capaldi Racing, which have been stalwart competitors in the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge series, will join forces to make a debut race entry in the Grand-Am KONI Sports Car Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park. Steve Phillips, who currently sits seventh in the Mustang Challenge points standings, will pilot the No. 19 FR500C Mustang with co-driver Brian Smith for their debut in Koni Challenge GS class.

The Ford Mustang FR500C is the KONI Challenge-specification Mustang racer, with Phillips making the move up from driving his Mustang Challenge FR500S machine, the competition platform for every racer in the Mustang Challenge.

Phillips attended the 3 Day Ford High Performance Driving School at Miller Motorsports Park in 2007 and raced with the Skip Barber SE MX-5 series accumulating two class wins and multiple top five finishes.

In 2008 Phillips competed in five Mustang Challenge events in which he was awarded the first-ever Barbersol
