Win #5 of 2019
Monday June 10, 2019 11:13am
From the Office of Forsberg Racing
On Friday June 7th
Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 were back in action in Chico CA after a month
off. Andy was 6th quick out of 21 cars, started 5th and finished 5th in the
fast heat dash which lined him up in the 9th starting position for the A main
event behind the heat race winners. Andy was making good headway and by lap
10 was in 5th but unfortunately Andy's ignition box quit working and Andy came
to a stop, the crew were able to get it swapped out and Andy would try his
luck from the rear of the field. He again was making good headway when on lap
17 he over cooked turns 1 & 2 and spun to a stop. That was Andy's 2nd stop of
the main so he was done for the night.
On Saturday June 8th
Andy and the F&F X1 were back in Placerville CA for Fan Appreciation night.
Andy set quick time out of 20 cars, went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and
started 3rd in the main event. At the wave of the green Andy took off and by
the completion of lap 1 was in the 2nd position and was chasing down the
leader. Andy never really got to find out if he had anything for the leader
as he fell out of contention on lap 10 with motor issues, once Andy had the
lead he never looked back claiming his 4th win at Placerville and 5th overall
This upcoming weekend
on Friday June 14th the Forsberg Family #92 will be back in Chico CA for the
Tarter Memorial Race and on Saturday June 15th Andy and the F&FX1 will be in
Hanford CA for a SCCT show.
On Tuesday June 4th the
West Capital Alumni Association had a Pizza Party at the Forsberg Racing Shop.
Over 70 people were in attendance. Guest speakers included SCCT PR director
Gary Thomas, track promoters Rick Feath of Petaluma Speedway, Scott Russell of
Placerville Speedway and Andy Forsberg whom all gave the crowd interesting
takes on the sport of sprint car racing in CA.
Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Return to Winning
Ways at Placerville Speedway
PETERSEN MEDIA- For
the third time in four races at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg and F&F
Racing parked on the front stretch as the team picked up their fourth win of the
season on Saturday night.
“Things have been going
really well at Placerville Speedway for us,” Andy Forsberg said. “The last four
races we have been really strong and in the mix to win. To win for the third
time in four races here is pretty cool.”
Kicking the night off
by timing in fastest amongst the 20-cars checked in for Fan Appreciation Night,
Forsberg would have his elbows up in heat race competition on the hooked up Ľ
mile bullring as he charged from fourth to second.
Fresh off of a
controversial Wheelbarrow Race win during intermission, Forsberg would find
himself with the three-pill during the redraw as he sought after his fourth win
of the season at the famed Nor Cal facility.
With the track still
holding speed and offering up a few different lane choices, Forsberg would jump
into second as he chased after Tony Gualda who set a blistering pace during the
opening stanza of the race.
A lap 10 restart would
see Gualda have issues and Forsberg would assume the role as race leader, though
would have company by the name of Justin Sanders.
Running the low side of
the speedway, Forsberg would hear Sanders making noise up top and would try the
lane for a pair of laps before dropping back down low.
A couple of timely
cautions kept the leaders out of traffic, and when the checkered flag dropped,
it was Forsberg pocketing the win.
“The crew is working
really hard right now, things are going our way and we will look to keep this up
this weekend in Hanford with the SCCT.”
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 2019.
