Lakeville, CT (July 27, 2015) – The Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 driven by Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman had another tough weekend at Lime Rock Park. The 2015 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season has had it’s ups and downs for the talented young duo. After capturing their first podium of the season at Watkins Glen the team hasn’t finished in the past two races.
Ashley started the 2-hour race in sixth position. Shortly after the green flag she was punted off the track by another competitor and went flying into the tire barrier. It was a hard hit but the BMW chassis held up as expected and Ashley was not injured.
There is one weekend off before the next round at Road America which is a home race for Fall-Line. The team remains optimistic and hopes to have a strong showing in front of a home crowd.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Ashley Freiberg: “I was definitely both angry and gutted for the team, BMW USA, IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and for Trent. I know the Fall-Line crew has their work cut out for them, but I am confident they will have the car back to 100% before Road America. I am a little sore, but am taking this rest time to focus on and prepare for the race in two weeks. Unfortunately getting taken out is a part of racing and it’s never fun when you’re the victim, but it’s about how you get up, wipe off the dirt, and bounce back from a situation like this that matters. We will be a force to be reckoned with at the next race; I’m sure of it.”
Trent Hindman: “Such an unfortunate end to a promising weekend. The car was great in practice and qualifying, but it was really a shame to see us go out of the race so early. I for sure am already focusing on how we’re going to bring home a win in Road America, because that’s the least we can do for all of the Fall-Line crew. As always a big thank you to our partners Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, and Top 1 Oil. On to the next one.”
Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager:“What a terrible disappointing day for the IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW. The Fall-Line guys have worked so hard and we had such a strong car but unfortunately our race ended on lap 1 as we were shoved off the track into the wall. I feel so bad for Trent, Ashley and the whole Fall-Line team. Fortunately, Ashley is okay although a little sore so we can all be thankful for the strength of the Fall-Line BMW.In true Fall-Line spirit we will shake off the past few events and roll right onto Road America- a home event for us in which we look forward to putting the Fall-Line IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW in victory lane.”
