All three of FallLine Motorsports’ BMW M3 Coupe will start inside the top ten for the BMW Performance 200 – the opening round of the 2013 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

“Qualifying went well,” understated Al Carter, who will lead the team from fourth on the grid for the race. “Our goal is to get the Eagle Technology/ Be Positive BMW to start and finish in the top-five so we have accomplished half of that. The field got rambunctious early and started running into each other, which only allowed for one timed lap. My lap was good enough to put us at the sharp end of the grid. I am certain that all three Fall-Line BMWs will be consistent in tomorrow’s race.”

Brett Sandberg, a new man to the team at Daytona International Speedway qualified fifth in the #48 car he will share with Charles Espenlaub. Mark Boden qualified seventh in the #46 entry and will start the car in the race before handing the car over to Bryan Sellers.

“I’m happy for all of our drivers,” said Boden. “Everyone did a great job out there. We’ve got really solid cars and I know we are in good shape for the race tomorrow. The BMW loves this track and I know we all have the speed to finish up front. It’s a long race and we all know anything can happen but the first stint will be crucial and I’ll be pushing hard and staying out of trouble so I can hand over the reins to Bryan and hopefully bring home the big trophy.”

Last season the three Fall-Line cars started the season in fine fashion, finishing second, third and fourth at Daytona. With all three teams on the pace during the practice sessions that preceded qualifying and in strong spots for the start of the race their ambition of sweeping of the podium remains a realistic, if daunting prospect.
