Indianapolis, IN (July 26, 2013) – The three Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3s were quick today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as they competed in the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge GS class. It was a busy day for the team with two practice sessions before qualifying this afternoon, but all three cars performed flawlessly and are in good position for the 2.5-hour Brickyard Sports Car Challenge tomorrow afternoon. The #45 car will start 2nd, the #48 car 3rd, and the #46 car 13th.
Hugh Plumb qualified the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMWtoday and just narrowly missed the pole position. He was edged in the closing laps by one of the Aston Martins and fell just .087 short of his first CTSCC pole position. But the #45 car definitely has the speed and both drivers are comfortable around the famed course as co-driver Al Carter was quickest inthe second practice session earlier today.
Trent Hindman qualified the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW and drove brilliantly in his first-ever GRAND-AM CTSCC event. To qualify 3rd for his first professional sports car is no surprise to the team, but a remarkable feat nonetheless. Hindman, just 17, is sharing the car with Charles Espenlaub for this event and the remainder of the year and this is a powerful combination of drivers and talent.
BMW and will start lucky number thirteen. He put the car in a good starting position and the duo of Boden and Bryan Sellers will be out to back-up their win at Watkins Glen with another strong finish this weekend at Indy.
Michael Harvey, Team Manager: “A good day for the Fall-Line BMW’s at Indianapolis, I am really proud of the whole team. A great job in qualifying today and I am hopeful we can translate into a strong race result.“
