2016 CA Civil War Champions!
From the Office of Forsberg Racing
On Saturday November 5th Andy and the PT Shocks 7c headed to Stockton CA for the 2016 CA Civil War season finale. Andy had a 16 point lead over the F&F Racing X1 driven by Mason Moore going into this final race and Andy looked to lock up his 9th career series championship. The day started out a little crazy as the 7c hauler broke down on the way to the race and boy were people wondering what was going on, with packing about to start and no 7c in the pits, but with a good bunch of friends and a determined crew they managed to pull into the pits just in time and everyone was feeling anxious and ready to win. There were 49 360 sprint cars and 2 separate groups of qualifying. Andy was 3rd out in the 2nd group and was 4th quick. Andy finished 1st in his heat race which automatically put him into the dash for the 360 A main event top 4 rows but it was going to be a tough battle as he drew an 8 pill and the track was already starting to go away. Andy managed to finish the dash in the 5th position but there were some heavy hitters in front of him with Rico Abreu and Jason Myers on the front row. This night was about the championship and even though Andy is always about getting a win the team had worked hard all year for this moment and there was a bigger picture in site. Mason Moore was near the rear of the field but he only had to finish 10 spots in front of Andy so staying on the track and finishing was the most important rule of the night. As the A main started Andy moved himself into the 3rd position but with about 10 laps to go would get a bit conservative with lapped cars becoming an issue and drivers getting overly aggressive with passing Andy backed off the throttle a bit and did not push the issue to take the checkered flag in the 5th position and claim his 9th CA Civil War Championship, the 2nd consecutive CA Civil War Championship in the PT Shocks 7c. With this 9th Championship, 5 Placerville track championships and 2 Silver Dollar 410 championships Andy is now a 16 time champion.
We would like to thank the crews, family, friends and sponsors for all the hard work they put into the 2016 race season, it has been a great season and we could not have done it without each and every one of you.
Andy Forsberg and C&M Motorsports Repeat as Civil War Series Champions
PETERSEN MEDIA- An extremely successful 2016 season came to a close on Saturday night for Andy Forsberg and the C&M Motorsports team as they celebrated their second consecutive Civil War Series Championship together and the ninth series crown for Forsberg.
“It is very cool to come out here and get another Civil War Series Championship,” Andy Forsberg said. “This C&M Motorsports car was a blast to drive all year and this is a great way to end our season.”
Heading into the night with a slim 16 point lead over Mason Moore, things would get a little tense early for Forsberg and team as their rig would break down on the way to the track.
Getting a little antsy, things would work out as the car would arrive at the speedway with time to spare and Forsberg and company could focus on racing.
With 49 360’s checked into the newly renovated Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night, Forsberg would do all the right things as he was able to claim his ninth career Civil War Series title.
Timing the C&M Motorsports No. 7c machine in fourth fastest overall in his qualifying flight, the Auburn, CA driver would pick up more valuable points as he was able to race from the second row of his heat race to capture the win.
Focusing on one race at a time, Forsberg would line up scratch on the field in the Dash, and his fifth place finish would put him in the third row of the 30-lap finale.
On an extremely slick and abrasive Stockton Dirt Track, Forsberg was able to stay inside the Top-Five during the duration of the feature event as he battled with the likes of Sean Becker, DJ Netto, and Dominic Scelzi.
Running fourth late in the race, Forsberg and Sceliz would hook up in a battle for the final two markers that would result in Forsberg finishing in the fifth spot.
By way of his finish, Forsberg would pull into victory lane and celebrate his second consecutive series triumph with the C&M Motorsports team.
“It was a great night to celebrate a title,” Forsberg added. “The crowd was packed, and everyone was able to have a good time. Thanks to this team for all of their hard work this year.”
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.
