Phil was an enthusiast and amateur who entered the 1959 US Grand Prix in his Maserati 250F, with a good background in SCCA racing but not that much single-seater experience. However, Cade actually qualified, but his car's engine expired and he therefore couldn't start the race. Cade was a Maserati fan who also raced a former Etancelin V8RI in America, and who continued racing his 250F competitively until 1962. Cade moved onto other things in life but kept the car until 1988. In the 1990's he even appeared at a historic racing meeting or two, again racing the V8RI.
