From the Office of Forsberg Racing
October 8th Andy and the PT Shocks 7c headed to Petaluma CA for the $5000.00 to
win Adobe cup 5, this was Petaluma's last race of the 2016 season. Andy along
with 3 other drivers were already locked into the top 2 rows of the A main event
from winning a Pit Stop USA shootout feature event held throughout the season.
Andy drew a 3 for his starting spot in the dash and finished 4th giving him his
starting spot in the A main event. The track was fast and by lap 8 of the main
event Andy had already moved into the 2nd position and was putting pressure on
the leader, for the next 5 laps the two drivers raced in and out of lapped
traffic unfortunately for Andy a 3 wide move to get by the leader in lapped
traffic did not work out well Andy jumped the lapped cars right rear tire. Andy
managed to save it from tipping over but the contact knocked the front wing off
and broke the left front shock tower off the frame. (see picture). This forced
Andy into the pits with a DNF.
upcoming weekend is the Placerville Posse Challenge, both Friday October 14th
and Saturday October 15th. Andy will be driving the PT Shocks 7c racing for the
biggest purse of 2016.
Traffic Bites Forsberg at Adobe Cup
PETERSEN MEDIA- Battling
for the lead at the halfway point in Saturday night’s Adobe Cup feature event at
Petaluma Speedway, contact with a car in traffic would prove detrimental to Andy
Forsberg as his night would eventually come to a close on the 19th lap.
“That didn’t quite go as we had planned,” Andy Forsberg said. “We were locked
into the feature event, and got to racing with the leader and made contact with
a car we were trying to lap. Lucky to not go flipping, but a disappointing way
to end our night.”
By way of a win at the Petaluma Speedway back in July, Forsberg would find
himself locked into the Adobe Cup Dash where a fourth place finished placed the
PitStopUSA/Autism Awareness/PT Shocks No. 7c in the second row for the 30-lap,
$5000-to-win feature event.
Getting into the third spot when the green flag waived, Forsberg would take
advantage of the restart on lap one, as he would take over the second spot only
to see the yellow again fly just four laps later.
Continuing to run in the second spot, the race would finally get going on lap
seven. Chasing after race leader, Chase Johnson, Forsberg would move in on him
as traffic finally became a factor.
Applying heavy pressure in lapped traffic, Forsberg saw an opportunity heading
into turn three on lap 15, and as he looked to move around Johnson he would make
contact with a slower car and do all but get his machine upside down.
Still able to hang in the second spot, Forsberg’s entry had severe damage to the
front end, but the Auburn, CA driver was still able to hang on to the second
spot. Doing all he could with a battered machine, Forsberg would finally call it
a night on the 19th lap
when his machine became too ill handling.
“I hate it for this team, and our partners,” Forsberg said. “We had an awesome
car, and it was going to be good at the end I think, but it wasn’t meant to be.
I have to thank everyone who works on this thing for giving me a good car, and
hopefully we can redeem ourselves this weekend.”
The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank PitStopUSA, Autism Awareness,
Pacific Highway Rentals, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, and Velocity Race Gear and
all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

Motorsports team is scheduled

inaugural NorCal Posse Shootout pres. by Autism Awareness.
