2015 Continental Tire Road Race Showcase at Road America
The Continental Tire Road Race Showcase at Road America had a variety of action, including the qualifying session being rained out. That resulted in the starting grid being based on the season's standings. Not ideal for many teams, but it kept things interesting…
Road America gave a good show of close racing and good finishes for BMWs in both GS and ST, with the #46 Fall-Line BMW M3 of Hindman and Freiberg taking the third podium spot on the GS class. The second Fall-Line BMW, #48 M3 of Boden and Kasements, rounded out the top-10 BMW finishers in GS with an 8th place finish.
The final moments of the ST class had a sudden shift of placings when the class-leading #17 Rennsport One Porsche Cayman of Pumpelly and Rodriquez Jr. ran out of fuel with just two turns to go. A painful end for them, but an outstanding gift for everyone behind them. With that, the Diffsonline-equipped #81 BimmerWorld BMW 328i of Hartanto and Cooke was gifted a bump up to a 4th place finish, continuing their strong late-season finishing pattern.
Want to know all the details of the race, but feel like you missed out? Worry not; you can catch the televised action on August 17 on Fox Sports 1.
