About the Team



Team Sahlen competes in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge within the ST class.

The Nonnamaker family will share the team's stable of Porsche Caymans with Joe Sahlen, driver and sponsor.

Phoenix ProMotions, the company behind the campaign, has won the Continental Tire Series Team and Driver and Manufacturer championship in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004. In addition to those four titles, Phoenix has also won championships in prior versions of the Series in 1984, 1997, and 1999. Phoenix ProMotions, a car preparation shop and promotional firm, has been responsible for the past campaigns run under the names of Planet Earth Motorsports, HRPWorld.com Racing, TheRaceSite.com Racing and Team Sahlen.

Sahlen's joined in 2005 for their first season of partnership with Phoenix. Sahlen Packing Company was founded in 1869 in Buffalo, New York as a family business. Company founder Joseph Sahlen dedicated himself to one guiding principle: only the freshest and highest quality meat products would bear the proud Sahlen name. Today — in addition to being the name behind the Buffalo area's favorite hot dogs and holiday hams — Sahlen's has grown from their Western New York roots to offer "Old Fashioned" Smokehouse Ham and Turkey Breast in over 15 states.
