Carter piloted two Fall-Line M3s at Barber; the car he shared with Hugh Plumb exited the race from eighth place with a transmission problem. The third Fall-Line car, driven by Bryan Sellers and Mark Boden, stopped on course with a mechanical problem while it was running second. The other two M3s in the pack also dropped out. Bill Auberlen parked the Turner M3 that he shared with Paul Dalla Lana not long after a collision that had led to a stop-and-go penalty, and the Automatic Racing M3 driven by Rob Ecklin and Steve Philips went into a guardrail on Ecklin’s stint.
The BMWs in ST fared somewhat better than those in GS, with four finishes in the top eight. As noted above, Borcheller and LaMarra were fourth while Liefooghe and Cooke were fifth. Jesse Combs and Jeff Mosing, who had led early in the race, finished seventh in their RACE EPIC 328i, while Seth Thomas and Dan Rogers finished eighth in their BimmerWorld 328i.
