BMW Drivers Finish 4th, 5th, and 6th in Street Tuner Class

 

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – May 3, 2014 . . . Following two consecutive second place finishes in the opening rounds of the 2014 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series, John Edwards and Trent Hindman stepped on the top of the podium by winning today’s race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Starting from a second consecutive Grand Sport class pole position the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsport BMW M3 drivers completed 75 laps of the 2.238-mile, 11-turn circuit in the two-and-one-half-hour race, finishing .473 seconds ahead of the field. They led the most laps with Hindman holding the point for seven laps during his stint and Edwards leading 33 laps in the second half of the race. The win was the first victory for 18-year old Hindman in only the eighth race of his young career. Fall-Line teammates Shelby Blackstock and Ashley Freiberg finished seventh in the No. 48 BMW M3.

 

BMW drivers finished fourth, fifth and sixth in the Street Tuner class. The No. 23 Burton Racing BMW 128i of Terry Borcheller and Mike LaMarra finished fourth. Bimmerworld Racing drivers finished fifth and sixth, the No. 81 BMW 328 of Tyler Cooke and Gregory Liefooghe fifth and the No. 82 BMW 328 of Daniel Rogers and Seth Thomas sixth.

A delighted Hindman said, “I raced five CTSCC races last season with Fall-Line, getting my first podium here at Laguna Seca with Charles Espenlaub. Now I have my first win and it really feels great. I’m not sure they realized that I’m only 18 when they handed me the champagne, but don’t worry – I didn’t drink it.”

 

Today’s race will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 at 11:00 a.m. ET on Sunday, May 11th. Round 4 of the 2014 CTSCC will be held at Lime Rock Park, in Lakeville, Conn., on May 24th.
