The 2014 GS champions head to Watkins Glen
Buffalo Grove, IL - The first (almost) third of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season has been a bit of a challenge for the returning GS championship-winning team. Heading into Round 4 of 10 this weekend at Watkins Glen International, drivers Trent Hindman and Ashley Freiberg are determined to get on the podium and the team has worked tirelessly to prepare for this weekend's race.
After three rounds, the Fall-Line pair sits fifth in GS driver standings. Over the last few months the team has been working closely with IMSA as the series continues to look at all aspects of competition.
Both Ashley and Trent are chomping at the bit to get back behind the wheel of their BMW M3s and at a circuit that they both enjoy immensely.

Ashley Freiberg: "I just love Watkins Glen. It is hands-down my favorite track; the last time I raced here I qualified on pole and won my first IMSA GT3 Cup race in 2013. After eight weeks of not racing, I know I am itching to get back behind the wheel, and I know everyone at Fall-Line Motorsports is ready to go racing again too! After our test here a month or so ago, I am feeling good coming back here for the race. I know last year this was the first event I had to sit out because I couldn't bring sponsorship tog
ether, so this is a huge reminder of how thankful I am for BMW of North America, IHG Rewards Club, and Bell Helmet's support. Let's go for that win."
Trent Hindman: "After a very, very long break its nice knowing that we're going to be back at the racetrack doing what we all love in a few days. I feel that we have used this time off effectively to make some great improvements to our BMW. I for sure am looking forward to seeing how the changes are going to affect our performance. Watkins Glen is one of my favorite tracks and we have a great car, so I'm focused on doing the best job possible for Fall-Line, Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards club, and Top 1 Oil."
Michael Harvey, Team Manager: "After a long break we are excited to bring the Fall-Line Motorsports BMW back to beautiful Watkins Glen, a track where we have previously enjoyed success. The whole Fall-Line team has been working diligently since the last event to focus on maximizing our strengths as we enter into the busy part of the season. It is always a unique event in which the weather can be a factor, and we look forward to putting the IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW on the podium."
