HINDMAN BECOMES YOUNGEST CTSCC POLE WINNER IN SERIES HISTORY

Lakeville, CT (September 27, 2013) – It was a special day for Fall-Line Motorsports today at Lime Rock Park as they qualified their three BMW M3s at the season-ending Continental Tire Sports Car Series race as part of the GRAND-AM Championship Weekend. This will be the last race under the GRAND-AM umbrella and Fall-Line is looking to end 2013 in style.  The team is off to a great start as Trent Hindman put the #48 on pole for tomorrow’s GS race and became the youngest pole-sitter (18 years, 7 days) in the series’ 13-year history. Hugh Plumb qualified the #45 car in fourth for a very strong starting position and Mark Boden will have to start in 16th for the 2.5-hour race tomorrow.
The Lime Rock Park race marks only Hindman’s fifth GRAND-AM race in his first year in sports cars after getting an early start in single-seater open-wheel cars. He made the switch to sports car racing earlier this year and has been dedicated to improving his craft and making the necessary adjustments to his driving style as well as learning the ins and outs of endurance racing. With the help and support of the Fall-Line team, Hindman has quickly gotten up to speed and this pole position solidifies that hard work and puts him in the record books. Driving the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW with veteran Charles Espenlaub has made for a very impressive combination with two very solid drivers who are both capable of bringing the car home in first place. Hindman will drive the first stint and then pass over to Espenlaub who is chasing the 3rd place position in the overall driver championship.
Hugh Plumb qualified the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW in fourth position and has an excellent chance of ending the 2013 season with a podium finish. This race event marks the final race for Plumb and Al Carter together in the #45 car but after a long and successful string of races together are still looking to finish on top. The pair has three podium finishes to their name and are aiming to add to that number in front of a home crowd during tomorrow’s race.
Although Mark Boden isn’t starting as close to the front as he would have liked, the team owner knows that it is a long race and patience has been one of his strong suits. He will start in the #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW 16th for the race but the goal is to make up positions while being very cautious of mid-pack traffic on a course where passing is tough. Boden, too, is in the driver championship race and currently sits 6th just 14 points out of 3rd. Look for co-driver Bryan Sellers to get in the car at the earliest opportunity and make his way to the front.
PIT STOP CHALLENGE UPDATE:
It was also a very close battle at the Fall-Line Motorsports transporter following qualifying as the team hosted their 1st Annual Fall-Line Motorsports Pit Stop Challenge. Drivers competed against one another changing four tires as a pair, and then the top-two quickest individual times went head to head to name the winner.
Round 1 Results:
Trent & Charles: 48.07
Mark & Bryan: 53.64
Al & Hugh: 60.03
Playoff:
Mark: 38.78
Charles 38.10
This makes Charles Espenlaub the winner by just over half a second! Team owner Mark Boden must be devastated after all of the secret practicing he had been doing back at the shop…!
Team Manager Michael Harvey: “Just a great day for the Fall-Line BMWs, Trent drove a magnificent qualifying session today and was rewarded with his first series pole. Race day is a different animal but the Fall-Line guys did a great job to put us in prime position to start tomorrow. We have three strong race cars and we look forward to finishing 2013 strong and bringing BMW another win at their home track.”

FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS LOOKING FOR VICTORY AT SEASON-FINALE AT LIME ROCK PARK Team adds to the excitement with First Annual Pit Stop Challenge

Buffalo Grove, IL (September 27, 2013) – The 2013 Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge Series comes to a close this weekend at Lime Rock Park and the Fall-Line Motorsports trio of BMW M3s are looking to end on a high note. Fall-Line have two cars with a chance to finish in the top-three in the season-ending points championship

Charles Espenlaub has a chance to finish in the top-three in overall driver standings in GS with a solid result this weekend but must not give up any points to the three drivers trailing him by a narrow margin. Espenlaub will be driving the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW with young gun Trent Hindman, who just celebrated his 18th birthday earlier this week. This driver combo has proven their competitiveness and after earning Hindman’s first podium finish last race at Laguna, they are hungry to keep up the momentum all the way through to the end.

Mark Boden is the next highest driver in championship standings, sitting 6th, and with a shot at the top-three in the championship he is also hoping to add to his two victories from earlier this season. His co-pilot of the #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW, Bryan Sellers, had to miss two races due to prior commitments, but has been in the car for the two race wins with Boden at Watkins Glen and Indianapolis. Prior to the last event at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the #46 had finished in the top-five of the past five race events but suffered a mechanical issue at Laguna that ended their streak. Sellers and Boden have what it takes to get the #46 back in victory lane and will do their best at a track that has historically suited the BMWs very well.

Al Carter and Hugh Plumb will be competing in their 31st and final race together in the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW. This pair has been together racing in the CTSCC series for the past three years and there is no better way to end this partnership than at their “home track” which is just over three hours from where Plumb and Carter reside. This duo earned a podium finish earlier this year at Watkins Glen and would love nothing more than to put the #45 car back on the podium once more.

DRIVER PIT STOP CHALLENGE: Adding to the excitement of the season-finale, the team is holding their 1st Annual Fall-Line Motorsports Pit Stop Challenge that will take place at the Fall-Line transporter Friday, September 27 at 3:30p ET where all six Fall-Line drivers will go head-to-head to show their skills outside of the racecar. Rumor is team owner Mark Boden had been practicing back at the team’s headquarters in Chicago for the past week, but can he handle the pressure under the watch? Full results and photos will be posted on Fall-Line’s social media pages once made official. PLEASE NOTE: Date/time on the photo is wrong. The  pit stop challenge will take place today, September 27th at 3:30p ET.

 

Team Manager Michael Harvey: “It seems Daytona was only yesterday, and it’s quite amazing we are at the Championship Weekend at the BMW-supported Lime Rock Park. After a season of highs and lows with a couple of wins I am looking to have the Fall-Line BMW’s on the podium at BMW’s track. All my guys have worked tirelessly this year in our efforts to extract every ounce of performance from cars, drivers, and engineers and they deserve all the credit as we build towards 2014.”

The GRAND-AM Championship Weekend of the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge presented by BMW at Lime Rock Park begins on Friday, September 27th with the only practice session of the event at 10:55a ET followed by qualifying at 1:55p ET. Green flag of the race is scheduled for Saturday, September 28th at 9:50a ET. A re-broadcast can be seen on Fox Sports 1 (formerly Speed) on Sunday, October 6 at 5:00p ET.

Hindman Victorious Twice at VIR

The BFGoodrich Tires SCCA Super Tour at Virginia International Raceway, held April 19-21, 2013, proved to be a successful affair for Fall-Line Motorsports driver Trent HIndman.  While Hindman had previous experience at VIR in open-wheel cars, this would be the first time Hindman took to the track in his No.41 Cirocco & Ozzimo Inc./Atlas- Acon Electric Service Corp./DFL Interiors Inc. Porsche GT3 cup car.

Saturday began with Wayside, NJ’s Hindman qualifying P1 in the GT-2 class.  As the race unfolded, Hindman lost the lead for a bit but quickly gained it back.  In the process, he set a new lap record. Hindman’s day ended with a win in the GT-2 class as well as 3rd overall.

Sunday saw a repeat of Saturday with HIndman capturing pole position for the GT-2 race again.  This time, he led his class flag-to-flag for his second win of the weekend in the GT-2 class.

Trent Hindman would like to thank his sponsors, Cirocco & Ozzimo Inc., Atlas-Acon Electric Service Corp., and DFL Interiors Inc. for all their support and for making this season possible.  Many thanks, also, to God, his Dad, Jonny Baker, Anders Krohn, Jim Bell, and of course all of the guys at Fall-Line Motorsports.  A special huge thanks goes out to Hindman’s mechanic for the VIR weekend, Mike Grady, who did a phenomenal job setting up the car.

Next up for Hindman is an SCCA National race, held at Blackhawk Farms on May 3-5, 2013.
