Two-time Rolex race winner David Sterenberg will join Compass360/Racing's lead driver Karl Thomson for the Twin 200's at Phoenix International Raceway this coming weekend.

"I've watched this team all year, and they just keep getting better," said Sterenberg. "Their run at the front of the pack at Mid Ohio was amazing and I want to help them get their first podium at PIR."

Sterenberg, who lives in Scottsdale, AZ, won twice in Rolex LMPII with Archangel Motorsports in 2001, and won a number of races in the Star Mazda series. "With a very tight schedule for the weekend, local track knowledge should play an integral role in getting the car set-up right," said Thomson. "David's got a ton of seat time, and we're counting on him to be our unfair advantage."

Compass360/Racing will be fielding a single entry for the Phoenix race, after the team's other car was badly damaged during practice at Mid Ohio a few weeks ago. "We will be back to two cars for the season-ending race at VIR in October, but we simply didn't have enough time to get the other car ready between Mid Ohio and Phoenix," said crew chief Ian McQuillan. "After PIR, we'll have nearly a month to get the other BMW Z3 Coupe built, which will also allow us some time for testing and set-up."
