SCC: B+ Racing Daytona race report


Al Carter and Hugh Plumb, co-driving the #45 B+ Racing Fall-Line BMW, finished fifth today in the first round of the 2011 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

Al Carter and Hugh Plumb had a fast car all week and Al Carter qualified 2nd yesterday. Unfortunately, his time was disallowed after a tech inspection, for a small problem that really did not affect the car's performance in qualifying. This morning Al proved again that his car was fast when he ended 2nd in the final practice session.

What a great way to start the season with a new sponsor. I went from last in the GS class to second during my stint. My car was fantastic and I want to thank Fall-Line Motorsports for preparing this great BMW" added Carter.

Hugh Plumb had to battle hard with his teammate Charles Espenlaub at the end of the race but Plumb crossed the finish line in fifth place.

"I gave everything I had to pass Charles in the last laps," said Hugh Plumb after the race. "I am so proud of my co-driver, Al Carter. He was amazing today. He went from last to second in less than 45 minutes! I am pleased to finish in fifth place. This is a great result for The Be Positive Foundation. I think we are going to have a great season, and I am already looking forward to Homestead in six weeks" added Plumb.
