Mechanical Issues Plague Andy Forsberg at Keller Auto Speedway

 

PETERSEN MEDIA - Making a return trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA for the first time in several years, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing checked in for a night of action with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Racing into the feature event through his heat race, engine issues at the start of the feature would end Forsberg’s night early.

“It kind of baffled us all,” Andy Forsberg said. “Everything ran fine in our heat race, but once we pushed off for the feature I could tell something was up. I took the green and went to work area hoping for a quick fix, and it didn’t help much so I ended up pulling off after we got lapped.”

With 42 cars checked in at Keller Auto Speedway on Saturday night, Forsberg timed the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in third quickest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Forsberg would admittedly make a couple of mistakes on the new reshaped track and it would result in slipping back to finish fourth though it would still be good enough to transfer him into the 30-lap feature event.

Pushing out for the feature event, Forsberg could tell something was up under the hood of his Pacific Highway Rentals/Autism Awareness/FVP backed machine. Coming to a stop after the first lap, Forsberg would make a trip to the work area and let the F&F team go to work.

Able to restart, the issues wasn’t rectified and Forsberg would make a few laps until he went a lap down and elected to call it a night.

“It was just a weird deal,” Forsberg said. “My guys continued to run through it after I pulled off and we still couldn’t figure it out. I know they will go to work this week and we will be just fine heading back to Placerville on Saturday night.

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2018. 

ON TAP: Forsberg and F&F Racing return to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night where they will look to make a return trip to victory lane.  

2018 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-3, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-9.

Long Weekend   

Monday June 18, 2018 10:12am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

     On Friday June 15th Andy and the crew headed to Chico CA for the 6th annual David Tarter Memorial Race driving the Forsberg Family #92.  Andy was 10th quick out of 24 cars, won his heat race represented by Autism Awareness for a extra $100 bonus and would start on the pole of the 35 lap main event.  The pole was not the spot to be with the crazy race surface and Andy was shuffled back to 3rd quickly.  Andy spent the race bouncing back and fourth from 3rd to 5th and on the white flag had got the pass for 2nd but unfortunately could not hold the position and ended the night with a 3rd place finish. (picture Scott VanDen Broeke for Autism Awareness handing Andy $100 for winning his heat race).


     On Saturday June 16 Andy and the F&F X1 made the long tow to Hanford CA for a SCCT race. Andy was 4th quick in his group, 4th in his heat race and was suppose to start 16th in the A main event but unfortunately as soon as he was pushed off for the feature event Andy could tell the motor was sour, he immediately pulled into the work area and the crew went to work switching out the ignition system and sent Andy back out to tag the rear of the field to take the green but the switch did not fix the problem and Andy would run at the rear of the field for 9 laps until he was lapped by the leaders and at this point Andy just pulled the car into the pits and called it a night for a disappointing DNF.

 

This upcoming weekend there are no races on Friday June 22nd and on Saturday June 23rd Andy will be back in the F&F X1 in Placerville CA for a points race.

From The Grandstand by Ron Rodda

Lincoln, CA…Andy Forsberg had a very successful 2nd weekend of June, winning a pair of winged 360 mains. Friday at Silver Dollar Speedway he set his career 40th quick time and later collected a 52nd career win in Chico. The following night it was a career 55th win at Placerville to close on the point lead, an honor he already holds in Chico.

Placerville has only run four point shows for winged 360s as two rainouts, nights without the division, and off nights have all played a part. Jimmy Trulli was in the point lead before June 9 action, partly due to his win the week prior.

Forsberg had to deal with a recent high school graduate, Tony Gualda, on the Placerville racy quarter mile for much of the 25 lap distance. Gualda drove under Forsberg on lap 14 as they entered turn 3, but lost the lead back on the backstretch following a lap 15 restart.

Leading the last 11 laps, Forsberg put some space between himself and 2nd to win over Gualda and Sean Becker. A flock of yellows with a red added in the earlier part of the main led to a rare fuel stop. Gualda’s ride is housed here in Lincoln and the Hollister resident in considering a move here.

Placerville’s four point races for winged 360s have averaged a fraction under 21 cars with a weekly strong field making every race a very competitive night. The track is idle next week while the track’s promoters, Scott Russell and Kami Arnold, will be in Hanford along with their Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

The North American 360 Sprint Car Poll named Scott and Kami Promoter of the Year after their efforts at creating the Sprint Car Challenge Tour last year. Considering they had no promotion experience before taking over Placerville, the honor is even more special.

Chico’s Friday win for the Auburn based veteran saw him facing some serious pressure from Sean Becker as the laps ticked off. A yellow with four laps remaining came when traffic and a closing Becker threatened that 52nd career win. A clear track and restart advantage led to a Forsberg, Becker, and Jake Wheeler finish.

Silver Dollar Speedway switched from winged 410s to 360s this year for their point show top division. It has been a remarkable success with an average of just over 28 cars a night after some weeks of single digit 410 turnouts in prior years.

Another change that is working very well is cutting the berm over 10 feet in and getting rid of the large tires. The tall berm takes care of any thought of putting the left front into the infield and racing seems to have improved with the wider track.

Chico and Marysville, just 45 minutes south, make for a busy weekend for promoter Dennis Gage. Some weekends a bonus is paid at Marysville on Saturday if that driver was at Chico on Friday. Marysville draws fewer cars but still gets a full main event number most of the time.

What has not worked is the RaceSaver sprint car class, new this year at Marysville with a limited schedule. Unfortunately, the turnout has been very limited with three being the largest crowd to date. Marysville does still pay $600 to win and $300 for 2nd, remarkable payout for such a low turnout.

Gage has been told that 7 RaceSaver engines have been sold to buyers north of Sacramento, so hopefully the future will see an increase. The track is committed to giving it time and at this point Gage notes he has no plans to drop RaceSavers.

These three Sacramento area tracks plus successful winged 360 programs at Ocean Speedway and Petaluma Speedway offer teams options for both their Friday and Saturday racing adventures.
