Trent Hindman and John Edwards drove the #46 Fall-Line M3 to a second-place finish in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, extending Hindman’s lead in Grand Sport drivers’ points. The Rum Bum Porsche driven by Nick Longhi and Matt Plumb—Hindman’s closest rival for the points lead—left the race very early, scoring no points.

The overall and Grand Sport win went to Andrew Davis and Robin Liddell in the #6 Stevenson Camaro; it was the Stevenson team's third straight win. Shelby Blackstock and Joey Atterbury finished third in the #48 Fall-Line M3, and the #97 Turner Motorsport M3 driven by Michael Marsal and Tom Kimber-Smith finished seventh.

Eric Foss and Jeff Mosing in the #56 Murillo 328i finished third in the Street Tuner class behind a pair of Porsche Caymans driven by class winners Corey Lewis and Cody Ellsworth and second place finishers Will and Wayne Nonnamaker. Until the final minutes of the race it appeared that Caymans would sweep the podium, but class leader Remo Ruscitti in the #04 Cayman ran out of fuel on the last lap. Terry Borcheller, who had battled with Ruscitti for the lead in the Burton Racing 128i that he shared with Mike LaMarra, had to make a fuel stop just two laps before the finish that dropped him from second to tenth.

The series runs next at Road America on August 9.—Brian S. Morgan
