Watkins Glen, NY (June 28, 2014) – Fall-Line Motorsports’ Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge team is only running one BMW M3 this weekend and it is driven by John Edwards and Trent Hindman.

#46 Trim-Tex/ Cirocco & Ozzimo/ Atlas Acon/ DFL Interiors/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes: Qualified P3 (2:01.348)
John Edwards: “Qualifying went well. Trent qualified P3, but that qualifying run was our first time on sticker tires. It was a good effort, but I know he really wanted to get the pole after getting so many of the poles so far this year. Since we had limited practice, we spent most of the time working on race set up. I’m confident for the race even though we were a little bit off for qualifying. We have a strong race set up.”
Trent Hindman: “I’m very happy with our p3 qualifying effort! Our M3 was extremely fast today and we feel it’ll be just as fast tomorrow for the race. John, Ryan, and the whole Fall-Line crew has really helped me become acclimated to the track in a very short amount of time. A huge thank you to our partners Trim-Tex, Cirocco & Ozzimo, Atlas Acon, DFL Interiors, and the National Kidney Foundation for all of their support. We’ve all been working incredibly hard so far this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to bringing home a good result.”
Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “I am really very proud of the whole Fall-Line Motorsports team. This is a great team effort and a wonderful job by Trent having seen Watkins Glen for the first time on Wednesday afternoon. We have a great BMW for the race today as we look to convert a great qualifying into the upper step of the podium. As always these (CTSC) are long races where a great deal of patience is required and so we couldn’t be happier to have John & Trent in the hot seat of the Trim-Tex, Cirrco Ozzimo Fall-Line BMW.”
