    2014 Titles to BMW, Hindman, and Fall-Line Motorsports.

    Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – Oct. 4, 2014 . . . A second-place finish by Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 drivers John Edwards and Trent Hindman in Friday’s 2.5-hour Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race secured the first professional driver’s title for 19-year old Hindman, the team championship for Fall-Line, and the third GS manufacturer’s championship for BMW in the last four years (2010, 2011, 2014).

    Entering the season finale at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA, Hindman held a five-point lead in the driver’s standings. The 19-year old started the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 from the rear of the GS field after not posting a time in the red-flagged qualifying session on Friday. He moved strongly through the field before handing off to Edwards. Edwards held the fourth position until the third- and second-place competitors made contact with two laps remaining, and Edwards maneuvered past both. He finished 2.186 seconds behind the winning Mustang of Ian James and Billy Johnson to secure the title for Hindman and put himself into the runner-up spot.
