Buffalo Grove, IL (August 7, 2013) – Fall-Line Motorsports is on a roll as we enter the latter part of the 2013 Continental Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) series season, capturing victories at the last two stops on the schedule at Watkins Glen and Indianapolis. The team heads to their home track in Elkhart Lake, WI, just two and a half hours north of Fall-Line’s headquarters just outside of Chicago.
The three-car team comprised of BMW M3s has performed very well as a group during the past few CTSCC GS races. Beginning with Mid-Ohio, where a series of untimely yellow flags cost the team a victory and followed with Watkins Glen and Indianapolis Motor Speedway where the #46 car drivers of Mark Boden and Bryan Sellers delivered the team’s second and third victory ever and the first for team owner Boden and Sellers.
Now, headed to the 8th round of the 11-race series, with two consecutive wins under their belt, at the team’s ‘home track,’ the question is: can Fall-Line Motorsports do it again?
Team Manager Michael Harvey says yes. “We have really hit our stride and the team is performing at an all-time high. We have fast BMWs and the cars are running flawlessly, we are executing the race strategy like we need to, and all of our drivers are all doing their jobs perfectly. Although Road America is not the strongest track for the BMW’s our goal will be to put all three cars in the top 10 and there is no better place to do it than right in our backyard in front of friends and family.”
The driver line-up will be a slight variation from the Indianapolis lineup. In the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW will once again be Charles Espenlaub and newcomer Trent Hindman. Hindman, just 17, started his first CTSCC race at Indianapolis and turned heads as he qualified third and ran fifth during the race. The Hindman/Espenlaub combo is a strong one, especially at Road America where Hindman is very comfortable.
We will have the good fortune to have Al Carter and Hugh Plumb in the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW, as always, and rest-assured this pair is on a mission. Carter was the fastest on-track in practice at Indy and Plumb narrowly missed the pole position but led the first third of the race. Contact with another GS competitor took them out of competition but this determined duo is looking for redemption at a track where they finished 8th last year.
The #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW has been all the talk for the past few races, and Mark Boden hopes to continue that trend. However, he will be without his regular co-pilot as Bryan Sellers has prior commitment to his American Le Mans Series team, which is also competing at Road America this weekend. Boden has more laps around the over four-mile track than most, and even bought a house nearby for use on race weekends. Joining Boden this weekend will be David Donohue who is a regular fill-in driver for Fall-Line and is very capable of continuing the #46 car’s success.
The Road America race is the 8th round of the 2013 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season and the event starts with a promoter test day on Wednesday. Official practice sessions will take place on August 8 at 1:30p and 4:45p ET on Thursday and CTSCC GS qualifying takes place Friday, August 9 at 9:40a ET. The start of the 2.5 hour race is set for Saturday, August 10 at 12:30p ET and can be viewed LIVE on speed2.com where available. The race will be televised on SPEED TV Saturday, August 17 at 4:00p ET.
