Fall-Line Motorsports CTSC Indianapolis Race Report

Fall-Line Motorsports accomplished a double-podium in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge series this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as John Edwards and Trent Hindman finished 2nd while Shelby Blackstock and Joey Atterbury crossed the finish line in 3rd place.

Edwards started the race from P2 in a very tight field and fell to third for the first portion of the 2.5-hour race. He pitted from P3 after the #9 Camaro got around him at the start. The opening laps had bouts of light rain but nothing substantial to affect the strategy. Hindman took over the reigns with an hour-and-a-half remaining and after two caution periods, drove to P2. Hindman widens the gap on his Championship lead in the GS category while Edwards moves to P2, just 15 points behind.

John Edwards: "Well, it was a strong race. Trent drove a great stint and although we were not super optimistic about our cars with the new layout of the track so to come away with P2 is great. Most of our other contenders had a tough day, so we got all the points that we could have. We didn't have the speed to keep with the Camaros, or at least the #6 car but all in all it was a good day."

Trent Hindman: "It's such a good feeling to be back up on the podium! John had a great run in qualifying and did an incredible job staying up front during his stint. The pit work was great, the car was great, everyone from Fall-Line did an awesome job all weekend. I was really pushing hard to try to and catch the #6 car but we just ran out of laps. Overall I am incredibly happy how it all went! A big thank you to our partners Trim-Tex, Cirocco & Ozzimo, Atlas Acon, and DFL Interiors for all of their support."

Joey Atterbury started the race from P11 and from the very beginning of the race, was on alternate strategy. During the first full-course caution in the opening laps, lead engineer Nathan McBride called in Atterbury for tires and fuel when the leaders stayed out on track. This would prove to be the call that landed the #48 car on the podium. Atterbury led 16 laps and didn't stop for a driver change until just over 50 minutes remaining in the race. This is when Blackstock got behind the wheel and drove the #48 home to claim the last step on the podium.

Joey Atterbury: "It's a great feeling to come back into the CTSC paddock and podium at Indy with the Fall Line Motorsports team. The entire weekend was great, the #48 car showed good speed, but more importantly the team gave Shelby and I a great platform for a fast racecar. To have both the #46 and #48 cars end up on the podium is a huge accomplishment with how competitive this series is."

Shelby Blackstock: "It was a amazing day for the Fall-Line BMWs. A double podium for the team while also extending the points lead for Trent Hindman is fantastic. It gives the whole team great momentum going into Road America!"

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: "What a great day for the Fall-Line BMWs. We tried two different strategies today and both worked extremely well. The Fall-line crew worked tirelessly over the past few days to get the cars competitive so the result is a true testament to teamwork and dedication. All four drivers drove great stints with no mistakes; we had perfect pit stops and great pit calls. Nice to leave here extending our points lead as we head to our "home" race in Road America."
