Monterey, CA - As the 2013 Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge series comes to a close with just two races remaining on the schedule, Fall-Line Motorsports heads to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca looking to lock-in their position in the driver championship.

Charles Espenlaub currently sits 3rd in the overall championship and Mark Boden 4th. The Continental Tire Sports Car Festival is the next to last round and this weekend all three Fall-Line BMW M3s will be in pursuit of a victory.

Bryan Sellers and Mark Boden will be driving the #46 Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW and have kept the momentum going throughout the latter part of the season.

They finished in the top-5 for the last five races including two victories at Watkins Glen and Indianapolis. The 2.238-mile, 11-turn road course is a favorite of Sellers and the pair finished 2nd at last year's event. Sellers will be pulling double-duty again this weekend as he is driving the team's Audi R8 in the GRAND-AM Rolex series as well.

In the #48 Cirocco Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW again will be Charles Espenlaub and Trent Hindman who is competing in his fourth CTSCC race in his career. The 17-year-old from Wayside, N.J., has been impressive thus far and finished in the top-10 in all three races he has competed in this year.

Al Carter is also pulling double-duty this weekend, sharing the Audi R8 with Sellers, but first he and co-driver Hugh Plumb must pilot the #45 Eagle/ B+ Foundation/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW. The #45 has seen a fair share of bad luck this season, consistently qualifying and running at the front but falling victim to unfortunate incidents for many of the race events.

The circuit at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is a favorite of both drivers and this pair would enjoy finishing out the season with a couple more podium finishes.

Team Manager Michael Harvey: "We are excited to head to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The Fall-Line Motorsports BMWs should be competitive as we look to consolidate our championship positions.

We have had a busy few months and the Fall-Line guys have worked incredibly hard to gain consistency and speed in our program and we look forward to finishing these next two events strongly and hopefully bringing another victory to BMW."

The Continental Tire Sports Car Festival, Round 9 of 11 of the 2013 Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge begins with official practice on Saturday, September 7. Qualifying will take place Saturday at 7p ET. The race will begin on Sunday, September 8 at 1p ET. A re-broadcast is available on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, September 15 at 4p ET.
