Fall-Line nabs another CTSCC front-row starting position at Road America

Trent Hindman qualified P2 in only his second GRAND-AM event of his career.

Elkhart Lake, WI (August 9, 2013) - Fall-Line Motorsports earned another front-row starting position in the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge Series (CTSCC) GS class today at Road America as newcomer Trent Hindman qualified P2 in only his second GRAND-AM event of his career. Hugh Plumb put in a late lap during qualifying to grab the 6th starting position and Mark Boden will start 13th.

The Fall-Line Motorsports team is working towards the coveted hat trick by winning their third race in a row tomorrow. The three-car BMW team has three chances to do so with three strong cars, all of which are capable of continuing the winning streak. That's a lot of threes.

17-year-old rookie Trent Hindman is continuing to turn heads in the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW. Qualifying third for this first GRAND-AM race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway just two weeks ago was no fluke. This young man has continued to impress and putting the #48 on the front row at Road America today solidified that. Hindman is sharing driving duties with Charles Espenlaub for the remainder of the season. Espenlaub currently sits fourth in overall GS driver standings.

Trent Hindman: "I am absolutely thrilled with the qualifying result from today! The car felt great in all of the practice runs, but I'm extremely happy that we were able to convert that speed into a 2nd place run. Just a huge thanks to Charles (Espenlaub) for all of the help and hard work so far this weekend! Also, a big thanks to Rad, Claudio, and all of these Fall-Line guys for giving me a great car once again. I am really looking forward to how we manage during the race tomorrow!"

Hugh Plumb and Al Carter will start 6th in the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW and are looking to turn their misfortune at Indianapolis into fortune at Road America. Hugh and Al have been struggling a bit with the #45 car this weekend trying to perfect the balance. The team and engineers have worked with the drivers to find a suitable set-up that works with the BMW on the 4-mile, high-speed track and all are satisfied with the progress that has been made.

The #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW has been to victory lane the past two races and Mark Boden, competing at his home track, hopes to continue that trend. David Donohue joins Boden this weekend, as regular co-pilot Bryan Sellers had a prior commitment. Boden qualified the car and will start 13th for the race tomorrow.

Team Manager Michael Harvey: "As the Fall-Line BMWs look to three-peat our campaign, we got off to a great start with a front row start for tomorrows race. We are very excited to be racing at Road America, "our home track" and I am so proud of our crew, engineers and drivers. We aim to perform at the highest level every weekend and this one is no exception."

The Road America race is the 8th round of the 2013 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season. 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.
