FALL-LINE MOTORSPORT CLAIMS FIRST VICTORY OF 2014 AS BLACKSTOCK AND FREIBERG LEAD A FALL-LINE 1 – 2 AS BOTH DRIVERS CAPTURE THEIR FIRST CTSCC GS WINS

FALL-LINE MOTORSPORT CLAIMS FIRST VICTORY OF 2014 AS BLACKSTOCK AND FREIBERG LEAD A FALL-LINE 1 – 2 AS BOTH DRIVERS CAPTURE THEIR FIRST CTSCC GS WINS

Daytona Beach, FL (January 25, 2014) – It was a fantastic day at Daytona International Speedway for the Fall-Line Motorsports IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSCC) team at the 2014 season-opener. BMW Perfromance 200. The three BMW M3s had been quick in the practice sessions earlier this week but didn’t get the chance to show their capability in qualifying. However, the race gave the six drivers the opportunity to shine on the 3.56 mile track and after some shuffling of the final grid, the #48 took home the FIRST win for Shelby Blackstock and Ashley Freiberg. The #46 of John Edwards and Trent Hindman finished second and although the #47 of Steve Bertheau and Spencer Pumpelly crossed the line in second but were given a penalty and were classified 19th.

This was Blackstock’s first CTSCC victory in his third season in the series and it comes at a track where he captured the pole position in his first year. Blackstock’s previous best result came at Kansas last year with a third-place finish. His impressive drive yesterday showed tremendous skill and poise for a young driver who has much less experience behind the wheel than his competitors. Ashley Freiberg drove the opening stint and turned heads as she made her way from P12 to P5 before handing the wheel of the #48 over to Blackstock. This was Freiberg’s first race with Fall-Line and her first race in the CTSCC series and with this victory she becomes the first female overall winner at Daytona International Speedway, a remarkable achievement.

#48 Starstruck/ TRUECar/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW drivers: P1 Best time: 1:55:796

Shelby Blackstock: “Today was a great race! The team did a great job in the pits and it got us through the field to the second spot. Luckily the winning car did not pass tech so we won the race!!! One-two for the Fall-Line team! Very impressive!”

Ashley Freiberg: “I am so proud of Shelby (Blackstock) and all the guys at Fall-Line Motorsports for working so hard this week. What a great start to the season for Fall-Line and BMW to be able to win in the first race of the season at Daytona. I am so thankful right now for everyone who has worked so hard to put me in the car for this event, and truly can’t even fathom that we won today. To also be the first woman in history to win overall at Daytona is the cherry on top. Thank you Fall-Line Motorsports, TRUECar, Bell Helmets, and all of my supporters for believing in me and making this happen. This is only the beginning.”

Not to be overlooked today was the pair of John Edwards and Trent Hindman who drove the
highest starting Fall-Line car from 3rd position. Hindman started the race and turned the car over to Edwards from the lead. Edwards drove an inspiring race and turned the fastest lap overall. In the closing laps he made a move on the #96 heading into turn one that didn’t stick and cost him two positions, letting teammate Blackstock by. This move ultimately cost him the win. Only drivers as competitive and driven as this duo would be disappointed with finishing second.

#46 Trim-Tex/ Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW drivers: P2 Best time: 1:55:047

John Edwards: “Well, it was a great day for BMW and for the entire Fall-Line team finishing 1-2. It was bittersweet for me since I basically threw it away trying to pass the #96 but I went for it and I stick by that decision. I would try that move again in the next race if I had the chance. It was still a great day for us, a solid way to start out the year points-wise and a great day for the whole team.”

Trent Hindman: “We had an amazing race, I had a great time out there! John (Edwards) did a fantastic job bringing the car home and the 1-2 for Fall-Line today is fantastic! Big thanks to our partners TrimTex, Criocco & Ozzimo, Atlas Acon, and DFL Interiors. Great start to 2014!”

The #47 car had the farthest to go to get to the front, but driver’s Steven Bertheau and Spencer Pumpelly made it happen. Bertheau made up valuable track position before Pumpelly got in the car. Pumpelly crossed the finish line in third place but IMSA deemed a pit lane violation that sent him back in the field.
#47 Sargent & Lundy/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW drivers: P19 Best time: 1:55:609

Steve Bertheau: “We had an amazing race. It is too bad that we had so many yellow flags near the end. All three Fall Line teams were on top. A shoot out between the three of us would have been a real thriller!”

Spencer Pumpelly: “The team did a fantastic job. Steve (Bertheau) and I had a strong car that was able to come through the field and challenge for a podium. I’m not sure exactly what our penalty was for but it’s a disappointing way to end the race. If the series wasn’t happy with the order on the restart I would have been happy to reposition myself before going green. It’s too bad because Steve Bertheau drove a great first stint to set us up for a podium finish.”

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager:
“Great day for the Fall-Line BMWs and after a very interesting race it is fantastic to have Shelby (Blackstock) and Ashley (Freiberg) celebrate their first win. The whole crew did a truly amazing job this week and to start the new season with a 1-2 finish at Daytona is incredible and a true testament to the dedication my guys have to our program. This was a true team effort with all three cars finishing on track in the top three positions with Spencer (Pumpelly) and Steve (Bertheau) in 2nd and Trent (Hindman) and John (Edwards) in 3rd. Unfortunately we incurred a penalty for the 47 car which moved them back a little, but still a great day for the Fall-Line BMWs at the BMW Performance 200.”

FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS HEADS TO DAYTONA FOR THE IMSA CONTINENTAL TIRES SPORTSCAR CHAMPIONSHIP

Buffalo Grove, IL (January 21, 2014) – The first race of the 2014 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Series (CTSC) season commences this weekend at Daytona International Speedway and the Fall-Line Motorsports team is ready to go with three entries for the opening race. The team will field their BMW M3s in the GS category with their fresh lineup of talented drivers and are anxious to hit the track again in 2014.

As previously announced, John Edwards and Trent Hindman will share driving duties of the #46 car. Shelby Blackstock and Ashley Freiberg will drive the #48, and Spencer Pumpelly and Steven Bertheau will pilot the third entry in the #47 car.

Edwards is new to the team this year but not new to CTSC. In his three years competing in the series he has earned five victories and numerous podium finishes. This factory BMW driver brings enormous talent and enthusiasm and is a welcome addition to the team. Edwards joins series sophomore Trent Hindman who drove for Fall-Line the last five races of 2013 and became the youngest driver to sit on the pole in CTSC history at the season-finale at Lime Rock Park.

Sponsors Cirocco Ozzimo, Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Atlas Acon, and DFL Interiors will return for 2014 on the #46 BMW M3 driven by Edwards and Hindman. Over the next few weeks we will share more about these great partners in our Partner Highlight section.

#46 Trim-Tex/ Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:

John Edwards: “I’m looking forward to my first race with Fall-Line. I think the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship has one of the shortest off seasons of any race series in the world, but I’m already itching to get back to racing. I’ve had two tests with Fall-Line and that has given me great confidence for the year ahead. They’ve won races and even the championship before, and I think we have a real shot at winning the GS championship again this year. I’m also looking forward to driving with Trent (Hindman). I’ve known him since he started racing in Skip Barber, and he’s come a long way and has proven his speed. I think we can definitely be a threat all year.”

Trent HIndman: “I’m extremely excited to get the 2014 season underway. There has been a lot of hard work and preparation during the offseason to come out and be contenders right from the beginning. We definitely showed well at the Roar, but you really don’t know what is going to happen until it is crunch time. Driving with John (Edwards) has been absolutely awesome so far and hopefully we can be in the fight up at the front! Just a quick thank you to Michael Harvey, Mark Boden, and everyone at Fall-Line for this great opportunity. Also, huge thanks to our partners Cirocco & Ozzimo, Atlas Acon, DFL Interiors, and Trim-Tex for coming together and making this season happen. Now hopefully we can pull together a good result for these guys!”

Driving the #47 car for a one-off at Daytona are series veterans Spencer Pumpelly and Steven Bertheau. This pair has driven together for several years and is re-uniting for this inaugural race under the unified sports car series umbrella. Pumpelly and Bertheau have had great success driving together and have finished on the podium three times including one victory at Daytona.

#47 Sargent & Lundy/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:

Spencer Pumpelly: “I’m really looking forward to running with Steve and Fall Line. Steve and I have had great success in the past winning in both Rolex and GS. Fall-Line has thus far really impressed me with their professionalism and organization. This should be a great start to the season.”

Steve Bertheau: “It is great to be driving with Spence (Pumpelly) again in a GS car again since we have had such great success together in GS races in the past. I am really looking forward to the weekend and joining Fall-Line for this exciting event.”

Joining Fall-Line for the 2014 season is Shelby Blackstock who has been a fixture in the CTSC paddock for three years. Blackstock has been competing in the series with a different team driving a Ford Mustang but has acclimated to the BMW very quickly and has settled into his new team. Ashley Freiberg will be in the car with Blackstock for Daytona and this will be her first race in the CTSC series. Freiberg competed in the North American GT3 Cup series in 2013 where she became the first female to win a race overall.

#48 Starstruck Entertainment/ TrueCar/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:

Shelby Blackstock: “I am very excited for the race at Daytona! The Fall-Line BMW is very fast and I’ve matched really well with the car. There is going to be a lot of good competition as there always is, so it should be a good race. Thanks to Fall-Line for giving me this opportunity and a great car!”

Ashley Freiberg: “I am so thankful that Fall-Line Motorsports has given me such a fantastic opportunity to race for them at Daytona. They have worked tremendously hard to make this happen and I hope I can return the favor by giving them a strong performance! This will be my first endurance race of any kind, but I have been doing my homework by watching in-car videos, looking at data, watching previous race footage and staying in shape so that I can show up as well-prepared as I can for my debut in CTSCC. I am so excited!”

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager:
“I am really excited to kick off 2014 at Daytona. We had a great test here early this month and I feel we really have a very strong driver lineup in all three cars. Our guys have worked really hard over the winter months and I believe we are well prepared for the race. The Fall-Line BMWs have always been strong at Daytona and with the mix of youth and experience behind the wheel we feel optimistic heading into the inaugural IMSA Continental Tire Series Championship.”

Fall-Line Motorsports re-signs Hindman for CTSCC in 2014

Buffalo Grove, IL – Fall-Line Motorsports continues to build their Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge team and has signed another talented driver for the 2014 season.
Young standout, Trent Hindman, will be returning to Fall-Line and will compete in his first full-season of GS competition in one of the team’s BMW M3s.

Hindman, who turned 18 this past fall, hails from New Jersey and competed in five CTSCC races in 2013. At his first-ever professional sports car race in his career, which took place at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Hindman qualified third and finished 4th. He scored 2 top-ten finishes, 2 top-fives, 1 podium and 1 pole position, for an average finish of 5.2 in 2013.

Hindman came up through the open-wheel ranks, starting in karting as a youngster then transitioning to cars via the Skip Barber Series’, Formula Ford 1600 in Canada, and the USF2000 Series in 2012. He made the shift to sportscars just this year and competed in SCCA with Fall-Line in addition to his professional program.
HIndman’s co-driver and sponsors will be announced ahead of the first official event of 2014, the Roar Before the ROLEX 24 at Daytona International Speedway in early January.

Trent Hindman: “I have to say that I am incredibly excited to be back with Fall-Line! Being able to return for the 2014 season and having the chance to work with a great team and some of the best drivers in the U.S. is truly a privilege. I am very happy to be continuing my relationship with Fall-Line and I’m especially looking forward to having another great season with these guys! Just a huge thank you goes out to Michael Harvey, Mark Boden, my parents, and my partners for making this all possible and for giving me a fantastic opportunity. I am really looking forward to getting this show on the road in Daytona!”

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “We are very excited to welcome Trent back for 2014. He is without doubt a unique talent and to have the opportunity to continue the development path we started last year is very special. Trent just adds to the strength in driving talent we have for 2014 as we look to take the Fall-Line BMWs to victory.”
