FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS QUALIFIES IN KANSAS
Kansas City, KS (August 16, 2013) – It was not the result that Fall-Line Motorsports wanted for their three BMWs in the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge series this evening as they qualified for the SFP Grand Prix at Kansas Speedway, but, nevertheless, the three car team will tackle the 2.5-hour race tomorrow knowing they have a chance to once again visit victory lane. The #48 car will start 8th, the #45 14th, and the #46 15th.
Qualified P8, 1:21.824.
Charles Espenlaub qualified the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ D Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW for the first time this season and will drive the first stint in the race tomorrow. This is an alternate strategy from what he and co-driver Trent Hindman have been running. This is Hindman’s third race in CTSCC and qualified third for his first race and second for his second race. The young driver led laps last weekend at Road America and hopes to earn his first podium this weekend at Kansas.
Qualified P14, 1:22.655.
Hugh Plumb and Al Carter will start 14th in the#45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW and Plumb will once again start the race. He has led laps in the past several races up until Road America, which was not a strong track for the BMW M3s. Plumb and Carter, have driven a phenomenal season, but the results have not come to them. This weekend Plumb and Carter are determined to capture another podium finish to add to their third place at Watkins Glen earlier this year.
Qualified P15, 1:22.832.
The #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW was qualified by Mark Boden who is pulling double-duty this weekend, also driving the team’s GT car in the Rolex Series. Boden has been to victory lane twice this season and has risen to 5th in GS overall driver standings. A solid results for Boden and co-driver Bryan Sellers will help to solidify Boden’s position in the Championship.
Team Manager Michael Harvey: “A solid effort by the Fall-line Boys although it appears the Kansas track is not best suited to our BMWs. Race day is always different and we will tackle this event just like all the others with solid pit stops, good strategy and smart driving as we look forward to gathering more points.”
