From The Grandstand by Ron Rodda

Mr. Excitement Still Has It

Lincoln, CA…Auburn sprint car driver, Andy Forsberg, has Mr. Excitement emblazoned on the trailer when he runs his own equipment.  Despite being a  older man for this sport at age 43, Forsberg still has championship skills and an occasional dose of excitement to justify the trailer markings.

Saturday night Placerville Speedway closed their point season with a four division show that drew a strong 34 car field of winged 360s.  Forsberg started the night 12 points ahead of 19 year old Kaleb Henry in the race for the track title.  When the night was over, Forsberg had his 6th Placerville win this season, 65th career win at the foothill quarter, and his 7th title.

Seven titles anywhere is impressive but Forsberg’s total is now 21 championships, between tracks and the Civil War sprint series. 

He regularly has to compete with drivers less than half his age and Kaleb Henry’s strong season put the driver with less than half the candles on his cake compared to Forsberg in a position to take the title.

But things started to not work for the younger championship hopeful when Forsberg set quick time, adding 5 points to his lead, and tacked on one more in heat race action.  Heading into the point season ending 25 lap main, Henry winning would mean Forsberg needed at least a 9th to win the title.

Driving the F and F Racing Alan Bradway and Steve Tuccelli owned X1, Forsberg left no doubt as to the point outcome, passing 16 year old Jodie Robinson on lap 19 for the win and track title number 7.

As if that wasn’t enough, Forsberg strapped into a mini-truck for the first time ever and won that main, racing clockwise for the first time in his career.  The mini-truck class at Placerville brought 11 trucks, probably the most ever, and that class is always entertaining.  Racing in the reverse direction adds to the fun and the number of entrants seems just right to have a quickly run support class.

The youth element in Northern California sprint car racing is more apparent than ever.  With micro sprints and outlaw karts producing teenagers with talent, the list of young sprint car drivers grows yearly.  While California watches some of that youthful skill relocate to points east, it seems the departures are replaced by new teenage talent.

Placerville had a good season and missed the early season rainouts, making it possible to run every race.  Last week’s World of Outlaw show was rescheduled from March, keeping the track from losing any shows.

It comes to an end for 2019 this coming Friday and Saturday when the two night NorCal Posse Shootout takes place with winged 360s and BCRA midget lites.  Last year over 40 sprints and more than 30 midget lites raced for substantially increased purses.  The weather outlook is excellent and the Shootout will be a wonderful way to close the season at the popular foothill quarter.

Last year sprint car wins at the Shootout went to Kyle Hirst and Sean Becker.

And neither one is a teenager!

Win #11 & Championship #21  

Monday September 16, 2019 10:09am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Wednesday September 11th Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 headed to Placerville, CA for a World of Outlaw race. Andy was 23rd quick, went from 8th to 5th in his heat race and finished with a 12th place finish in the A main event. A disappointing run with the outlaws in 3 nights with them. 

     On Saturday September 14th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Placerville, CA for the 2019 season points finale. Andy and the F&F X1 went into the final night with a 12-point lead over Kalib Henry.  Andy set quick time out of 34 cars giving him another 5 points and went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race giving him another 4 points, Kalib picked up 2 points in his heat race so going into the A main event Andy had a 19 point lead going into the A main event.  Andy started 3rd in the A and went into the final race knowing he just needed to finish in front of Kalib Henry to get his 21st championship.  As the race progressed Andy knew he had a winning car and on a lap 18 restart Andy made the winning pass to claim his 11th main event win in 2019 and clinched his 7th Placerville track championship and his 21st overall drivers championship, Andy also made his debut in the Placerville mini truck division starting 6th in his heat race and finishing 2nd and started on the pole of the A main event. Andy was concerned as to how this may play out as the mini truck A main was run going backwards on the track, but after a few laps Andy looked like a veteran and would win his first mini truck race in just his first ever start. 

This upcoming weekend on Friday September 20th and Saturday September 21st Andy and the F&F X1 head back to Placerville CA for the 2 day Posse Challenge. 

  We would like to thank all the crew members, sponsors, family and friends for a great season.  Andy is successful because he is lucky to have a spectacular group of people that work hard to give him the best equipment and support each and every week.  All of the success Andy has achieved just would not be possible with out each and every crew member working hard each and every night to get the car on the race track. The sponsors that give all they can to give him the best equipment to run and to our race family that support him each and every week.  Andy appreciates each and every individual for the time, hard work and support.

Andy Forsberg Wins Both the Battle and the War; Claims 2019 Placerville Speedway Track Championship 

PETERSEN MEDIA- Andy Forsberg put an exclamation point on the 2019 point season at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night. Heading into the night with a mere 12 point lead in the season long championship hunt, Forsberg will be dominant all night long as he earned quick time honors and won the 25-lap feature event to claim his 7th career driving title at the speedway he as called home for so many years.

“Coming into the night chasing the title, you tell yourself to mind your manners and focus on the big picture,” Forsberg said. “My guys gave me too good of a car and I had to go for it. The year we had with some issues and torn up equipment, it feels pretty cool to get this win and this title for the F&F Racing guys.”

With a robust 34 cars swarming the pit area on Saturday night, Forsberg would pick up 5 bonus points early as he earned quick time honors aboard the Econo Lube n Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine.

In by far the wildest heat race of the night that saw a couple of incidents, Forsberg would keep his nose clean, avoid some harm and pick up a second place finish moving into the feature event.

By way of Jimmy Wall’s three pill, AF would grid the field from the third position in the final feature event of the point season at Placerville Speedway. When things came to life, it was Jodie Robinson getting the early jump as Forsberg moved into second.

In a fast paced feature event, Forsberg would keep the youngster in his sights, and on the 18th lap while battling in traffic, would pull in front to take the lead but the yellow flew and negated his pass.

Forsberg would not be denied on this night however, as the ensuring restart saw him ride the thick Placerville Speedway cushion to the point, and he never looked back. Cruising to the win, Forsberg won both the battle and the war as his F&F Racing team celebrated on the front stretch in grand style.

“Big thanks to these guys for continuing to work so hard on this car week in and week out,” Forsberg said. “Great to win the race and the title, and hopefully we can come out this week and win the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will are set to return to Placerville Speedway on Friday and Saturday night for the 3rd Annual Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.   

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-26, Wins-8, Top 5’s-14, Top 10’s-18.

Gold Cup 66  

Monday September 9, 2019 12:37pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     Wednesday September 4th Gold Cup 66 kicked off in Chico, CA.  Nights 1&2 Andy was driving the F&F X1 for the 2day Platinum Cup.  Andy was 7th quick out of 45 cars, went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and from 7th to 5th in the dash.  The main event was one for the memory books as Andy moved through the field to get the lead, but he and Kaleb Henry put on a show for the fans as they exchanged the lead on numerous occasions all the way to the checkered flag as Andy made another last lap pass to grab win #10 on the season.

     Thursday September 5th the top 4 finishers from the night before were automatically locked into the dash and Andy drove from 8th to 4th for his starting position.  The 40 lap main event was far from the exciting race from the evening before and the rubber down surface caused to be very difficult as Andy went into tire saving mode to hopefully finish the race.  The officials decided to cut the race short do to the tire ware and Andy crossed the checkered in 6th. 

     Friday September 6th was night #1 with the WOO driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92.  Andy was 13th quick, went from 6th to 4th in his heat race and finished 13th in the A main event.

     Saturday September 7th was night #2 with the WOO and Andy was 17th quick, went from 8th to 7th in the controversial heat race that had Andy in 6th to make the A when the checkered flag came out for the leaders along with an accidental Red/Yellow light.  The heat race was restarted for reasons officials could not explain and Andy ended up on the wrong end of the stick when the mad dash to make the main had cars running into each other and Andy not in a transfer spot.  Andy would run the B main event and would not transfer to the A. 

This upcoming week has Andy racing in Placerville driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92 with the WOO on Wednesday September 11th and on Saturday September 14th again in Placerville driving the F&F X1 for the season finale for 2019.

Thank you to all our pit crews, sponsors, family and friends for all the help this past week it was a long week for everyone and all the hard work was very much appreciated.

Andy Forsberg Wins a Thriller to Open Gold Cup Race of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA- With all eyes on Chico, CA over the last week for the 66thAnnual Gold Cup Race of Champions, Andy Forsberg helped get the buzz going as he won an absolute thriller on Wednesday night in a race that came down to the wire with Kalib Henry.

“The last couple of times out with F&F Racing it had been kind of rough, to so kick Gold Cup off with a really exciting Wednesday night win was awesome,” Andy Forsberg said.

On a wet surface early in the night, Forsberg would be the first car out for time trials, and though it hurt him a bit he would still time in seventh quickest in his group.

With a little luck on his side, Forsberg would end up with a second place finish in his heat race and move into the Dash. Going from eighth to fifth, the Auburn, CA driver lined up in the third row of the 30-lap feature event.

When the feature event rolled around, the track was in great shape for the feature event, and as things went green Forsberg made a nice move to jump into third aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA entry.

Moving into second on the fourth lap, Forsberg would continue to roll the bottom to perfection as he moved into the race lead on lap six as he worked under Rico Abreu. 

Going back and forth with Abreu, Forsberg would clear him on the 10th lap and break away but then felt pressure from Henry who moved into the top spot on the 13th lap.

Staying true to the bottom, Forsberg would get the lead back on the 16th lap, only to have Henry get back by with eighth to go, as they thrilled the crowd with their battle.

Running side by side the last 5 laps, it would be Forsberg getting the advantage by a slim margin to win an absolute thriller.

Locking into the Thursday night Dash by way of his finish on Wednesday, slick and abrasive conditions would take over the surface on this night with high temperatures and wind lingering through the day.

Making some headway in the Dash, Forsberg would advance a few positions as his fourth place finish put him in the second row for the feature event.

Running third in the opener laps on the slick surface, some good hard racing would see Forsberg slip back to sixth after mixing it up. Back in sixth, rubber would become a big issue and Forsberg would have to go into conservation mode to keep his tires.

He would do all he could as he took the checkered with a sixth place finish to close out F&F Racing’s week.

“It was great to get a win to kick things off, and it was a fun few days all around,” Forsberg said. “Thanks to my guys for all of their work, and hopefully we can pull this Placerville title off on Saturday.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the track’s 2019 Championship Finale.  

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-25, Wins-7, Top 5’s-13, Top 10’s-17.

4 Races in 4 Nights  

Monday August 26, 2019 11:42am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Wednesday August 21st Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 headed to Placerville, CA for a NARC show. With 33 cars on hand Andy was 3rd quick, went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and was 2nd in points going into the pole shuffle, Andy lost in the first round to Kyle Larson and he would line up in the 6th position for the feature event.  Andy crossed the finish line in 4th but unfortunately coming off turn 4 for the checkered flag the car let go and the motor was done (see picture)

     On Thursday August 22nd Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 #2 headed to Chico, CA for the second night of the NARC show.  Andy set quick time went from 4th to 3rd in his heat race and was high point guy going into the pole shuffle, Andy lost the final round of the shuffle but would start on the outside row for the A main event and at the checkered would cross the line in 3rd.

     On Friday August 23rd Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 360 headed back to Chico, CA for the final points race.  Andy was 4th quick out of 17 cars, went from 3rd to 4th in the dash and started 8th in the A main event. Andy would struggle making up any ground and would take the checkered in 5th place.  Although Andy missed a night of racing do to conflicting schedules he managed a 2nd place in driver points and would win the owner championship. 

     On Saturday August 24th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 360 headed to Marysville, CA.  There were 16 cars on hand and Andy would set quick time, go from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and start 3rd in the A main event.  The feature event Andy moved into 2nd quickly behind a 15 year old up-n-comer driver Caden Sarale who put some perfect laps together and kept veteran Andy having to work through some heavy lapped traffic to stay in contention and on the last lap the two cars crossed the finish line nearly side by side the crowd was left wondering who won? as Troy Hennig announced the winner as Mr. Excitement Andy Forsberg by just .019 tenth of a second the crowd loved it as it was definitely one of the most exciting finishes I have ever seen.

    With 4 nights of racing we would like to thank the crew of the 92 cars they had some long days and nights and gave Andy a great car to race each and every night. 

This upcoming Labor Day weekend is an off weekend for Andy and the crew, as they will enjoy a weekend in Calistoga, CA for the Vermeil Classic USAC-NARC race.  Andy and his father Richard will bring the restored Lloyd out for some intermission action and again on Monday September 2nd in Petaluma CA. 

The following week will be 4 nights of racing in Chico, CA. Wednesday September 4th and Thursday September 5th Andy will be driving the F&F X1 for open 360 races and on Friday September 6th and Saturday September 7th driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 with the World of Outlaws.

50-50 Weekend   

Thursday August 22, 2019 8:25pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday August 16th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 were in Chico, CA for the Tyler Wolf Memorial Race.  Andy set quick time out of 30 cars, went from 6th to 4th in the dash and started in position #8 for the main event.  At the wave of the green Andy got jammed up and fell back to 10th, from that point Andy began a hard charge that eventually led to him finishing in the 3rd position. 

     On Saturday August 17th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Placerville, CA for a points show.  Andy was 4th quick, finished 3rd in his heat race and with Jimmy wall pulling the 1 pill Andy would start on the pole of the A main event. This was short lived though as Andy hooked the turn 1 cushion and bounced to a stop. Andy would tag the rear of the field and make his way through the field from 20th. Nearing the end of the race Andy had moved into position #6 and was looking to have a decent finish but unfortunately coming to the checkered flag another car missed his line and made contact with Andy causing him to flip down the front stretch landing just a few feet from the finish line and giving him a 16th place finish.  With just 1 more points race at Placerville the points chase is close with 2nd place Caleb Henry just a handful of points behind. 

This upcoming week is a busy one for the Forsberg Team as they will race on Wednesday August 21st in Placerville for a NARC 410 show driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92. Thursday August 22nd in Chico, CA for a NARC 410 show again driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92. Friday August 23rd in Chico, CA for the 360 points season finale driving the Forsberg Family #92 and on Saturday August 24th in Marysville, CA driving the Forsberg Family #92 for a 360 points show.

Forsberg’s Night at Placerville Speedway Turns Sour

PETERSEN MEDIA- Having a pretty good night going on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg would see that drastically change as issues on lap 1 and 25 ultimately relegated him to a DNF as he would be scored 16th on this night.

“We had a pretty event-free night going, and I should have known that was going to change,” Forsberg said with a smirk. “My guys had the car really good, and I got a little over confident and the cushion sucked me in on the start of the race and I did everything but get upside down. Started over from the back, got back up to sixth and coming the checkered got upside down and ended up 16th.”

On a rare hooked up surface late in the season at Placerville Speedway to get things started, Forsberg would go out and time the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in fourth fastest in time trials before finishing third in heat race competition.

After a couple of weeks of poor pill draw efforts from guru, Jimmy Wall, Wall was back on his game Saturday night as the one pill put Forsberg on the pole of the 25-lap affair as he looked to put the track title away on this night.

With Andy Gregg getting the early jump, Forsberg would attack the cushion in turns one and two but it would attack back as he would catch the curb wrong and bring his machine to a stop facing the wrong way.

Going back to 20th, Forsberg would do a great job of working his way forward as restarts would treat him well and he was soon back up into the Top-10.

Looking like he would salvage his night from the tail, contact coming to the checkered would send Forsberg flipping down the front stretch, and he would come to a stop just feet from the finish line as he ended up being scored 16th.

With the way the race played out, the points battle is far from over heading into the season finale in a few weeks, as Forsberg now sits atop the standings with just a 12 point cushion.

“To be honest I wasn’t even thinking about points coming from the tail, I was just focused on getting us back to the front,” Forsberg said. “Looks like we will have a heckuva battle going into the finale, and hopefully I can finish this off for the F&F guys.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be idle until the Platinum Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway during the first two nights of the Gold Cup Race of Champions.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-23, Wins-6, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-15.

5th at Legends Night 

Wednesday August 14, 2019 9:19am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday August 10th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Placerville, CA for Legends Night.  Andy set quick time out of 23 cars, went from 4th to 3rd in his heat race and would start 8th in the A main event. Andy made some great moves and by lap 7 had past for 4th only to have the caution flag come out negating his progress.  At that point Andy's race went south as on another restart trying to pass for 4th again Andy was forced off the track falling to 10th, again Andy would give it his all and work his way back up to a 5th place finish.

     This upcoming weekend Andy will be in Chico, CA driving the Forsberg Family #92 360 for the Tyler Wolf Memorial race on Friday August 16th. On Saturday August 17th Andy will be back in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1 for a points show.

Andy Forsberg 5th at Placerville Speedway As He Closes in on Track Title

PETERSEN MEDIA- Bouncing back from engine issues at Merced Speedway one week ago, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing came back strong as they picked up a fifth place finish on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

“It was a cool night of racing with the Legends Night deal going on,” Forsberg said. “On the track we overcame Jimmy Wall’s 8-pill draw was got up to fourth, but then a restart kind of changed things, and we went backwards but still managed to get back up to fifth.”

Earning quick time honors aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine, Forsberg would simply get through his heat race as his third place finish locked him into the draw.

Finding the eight pill in the redraw, the Auburn, CA pilot would take the green flag from the fourth row to start the 25-lap affair as he looked to pick up his third consecutive win at the ¼ mile bullring.

Working his way up to fourth, a restart would see Forsberg forced up the hill in turns three and four and off the racing surface. Though he was able to keep his machine out of harms way, Forsberg would give up a ton of track position as he fell all the way back to 10th.

Despite being mired in traffic, the grizzled veteran would go back to work on picking up lost track position as he would get back into the Top-5.

Chasing after Andy Gregg and Sean Becker in the closing stanzas, Forsberg would fend off Justin Sanders to pocket a fifth place finish at the line.

“It was an eventful night, but these F&F guys keep working hard,’ Forsberg said. “Looking forward to another night of racing with them on Saturday back up on the hill.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg are slated to return to action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-22, Wins-6, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-15.

Chico & Merced 

Monday August 5, 2019 9:45am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday August 2nd Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico, CA for Kids Bike Night.  Andy set quick time out of 22 cars, went from 5th to 5th in the dash and started 9th in the A main event. Andy had decent speed but on lap 8 jumped the cushion and lost quite a few positions.  For the next 22 laps Andy clawed his way from 12th to a 4th place finish. 

     On Saturday August 3rd Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Merced CA for a first time appearance for the SCCT series.  Andy set quick time in his qualifying group and was 2nd quick overall.  Andy finished 3rd in his heat race and would finish 6th in the dash giving him his starting position for the A main event.  Andy was holding down the 6th position early in the race when he felt the motor starting to lay down, Andy saw the oil pressure going down and quickly shut off the motor.  Andy was scored 18th with a DNF.

This upcoming weekend there are no races on Friday and on Saturday August 10th Andy and the F&F X1 will be back in Placerville, CA to continue to defend their top position as points leaders.

Engine Woes Sideline Forsberg at Merced Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- In hunt for his third consecutive win, and second SCCT win of the year on Saturday night, Andy Forsberg got off to a strong start only to see engine woes sideline him during the feature event.

“We got our night off to a good start, got through the heat, and were rolling pretty decent in the feature until we had some engine issues,” Andy Forsberg said. “It has just been that kind of year. I keep saying it, but its either feast or famine for us.”

Earning quick time honors in his qualifying group aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine, Forsberg would advance from fourth to third in his heat race.

Moving into the Dash, contact would result in an early spin for the Auburn, CA driver, but he would recover to finish sixth and find himself in the third row for the 35-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, Forsberg would slip back early as he worked around the tight bullring nestled in Merced, CA. Able to get going, Forsberg would recover those lost positions as he looked to make a bid for a spot inside the Top-Five.

As the race approached the halfway point, trouble would strike Forsberg and F&F Racing as he came to a stop in turn two on the race’s 17th lap. Making the decision that the damage was too much to overcome, Forsberg’s night would come to a close as he would be credited with an 18th place finish.

“I hate it for my guys, but they still continue to work so hard despite the luck that we have,” Forsberg said. “They will go to work this week, and hopefully we are back in the hunt on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg are slated to return to action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

Forni Win #3!  

Monday July 29, 2019 1:28pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday July 27th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Placerville, CA for the $5,000.00 to win Mark Forni Classic.  Andy was 8th quick out of 23 cars, won his heat race from the 2nd position which put him into the redraw for his starting spot in the A main event.  Jimmy pulled a 6 pill so that is where he started the main event from.  At the start of the green flag Andy bounced back & forth from 3rd to 5th for the first 15 laps but with 10 to go he found his groove and on a lap 20 restart he found himself in the 2nd position.  Andy used the next restart to his advantage as he passed leader Tim Keading and drove away to score the $5,000.00 win, his 6th win this year at P-Ville and his 8th win this year.

This upcoming weekend Andy will be in Chico, CA Friday August 2nd driving the Forsberg Family #92 for a 360 points show and on Saturday August 3rd he will be in Merced, CA driving the F&F X1 for a SCCT show.

Andy Forsberg Scores Third Career Mark Forni Classic Win

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg picked up his third Mark Forni Classic win in thrilling fashion as he now finds himself tied with Sean Becker atop the all time wins list of this race.

“Man, what a night,” Andy Forsberg said. “The F&F guys worked hard all night long and we won another Forni. The money is great, but this is one of those races you want to win because Mark Forni was such a good guy, and did so much for so many at this track.”

Getting off to a so-so start on Saturday night, Forsberg would time the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in eighth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Needing to win his heat to make the redraw on this night, Forsberg would have his hands full as he shared the front row with Sean Becker. A very entertaining battle early, Forsberg would eventually clear his rival, as he picked up the win and moved into the nightly redraw. 

Pulling the six pill, Forsberg would find himself in the third row for the 25-lap feature event on a slick surface that was offered up on this night. 

Searching around the speedway in his quest to the front, Forsberg would make some swift moves to eventually propel himself up to third as he chased after Tim Kaeding and second running Cody Lamar. 

Getting by Lamar on a late restart, Forsberg would chase after Kaeding until the caution flew with just five markers left in the race. This would be the break that Forsberg needed, as he would stick the bottom in turns one and two to pull ahead of Kaeding, before sliding up in front of him in turns three and four to secure the top spot.

Out in front, Forsberg would turn in four perfect laps to cap the night, give himself his third career Forni Classic win, and give F&F Racing their fourth win at the track’s crowned jewel event.

“I was watching TK and he was doing some stuff on restarts, and I thought that if I could get into second I could get by him,” Forsberg said. “Luckily we were able to do just that, and like I said really cool to win this race again. Thanks to F&F Racing and all of our sponsors for everything they do."

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will travel to Merced Speedway on Saturday night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

Win #7 

Monday July 22, 2019 10:17am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday July 20th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Placerville, CA for a points race. Andy was 6th quick out of 23 cars. Immediately after qualifying the F&F crew changed the drive-line because Andy felt a vibration and that fixed the problem as Andy went from 3rd to 2nd in his heat race and made the redraw.  Jimmy pulled the #4 pill for Andy's starting position in the A main event.  By lap 1 Andy was in 2nd and by lap 12 he had taken the lead and would not be challenged for the remainder of the race to get win #7 on the season and #5 at Placerville.

     This upcoming weekend there are no races on Friday and on Saturday July 27th Andy will be back in Placerville driving the F&FX1 for the $5000.00 to win Mark Forni Memorial race.

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Score 5th Win of 2019

PETERSEN MEDIA- Pointing out that 2019 has been feast or famine one week ago following a tough night, Saturday night was all feast for Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing as the team picked up their fifth win of the season at Placerville Speedway.

“After a long night last week it feel great to get back up here in victory lane,” Andy Forsberg said. “We still had some work to do after qualifying, so if we ever have an event free night, I’m not sure what these guys will do.”

Timing the F&F Racing No. x1 machine in sixth quickest in qualifying time trials, Forsberg would race the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed machine to a second place finish in heat race action.

Having some help via a pair of top qualifiers winning their heat races, Forsberg would snatch a spot in the redraw where the four pill put him in the second row of the feature event.

Following a wreck on the initial start, the second attempt would see Forsberg get a great jump as he moved into second and chased after the early leader, Jodie Robinson.

While Robinson was stout out front, Forsberg would give chase but could not get by until the yellow flew on the 13th lap.

The ensuing restart saw Forsberg make a power move in turns one and two to rocket out to the top spot. Once in front, it was smooth sailing for the reigning track champion as he went on to score his fourth win in points action of the year and fifth overall at the speedway.

“I have to thank the F&F guys for all of their hard work again on Saturday night,” Forsberg noted. “It was a great night, and I am excited for the Mark Forni Classic.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

50-50 Weekend

Monday July 15, 2019 11:42am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday July 12th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 were in Chico, CA for a 360 points race.  Andy set quick time out of 17 cars, won the dash from the 4th position and started 5th in the A main event behind the heat winners.  In the feature the track was super hooked up and fast, the racing was pretty intense and Andy moved from 5th to the top 3 by lap 5 and at one point Andy actually had the lead but with the close racing came out of the turn back in 3rd.  Unfortunately Andy was never able to get back by the front-runners as they raced side by side for most of the race. Andy would take the checkered in 3rd but as luck may have it the second place car did not go to the scales to weigh in and was disqualified giving Andy a second place finish.

     On Saturday July 13th Andy was in Placerville, CA driving the F&F X1 for the Al Hinds race.  In qualifying it was obvious the X1 motor was not running right and Andy timed in 15th quick out of 26 cars. The crew went to work to diagnose the problem but were not able to find it by the time Andy needed to be out for his heat race as luck would have it again Andy was on the front row and was able to hold off the cars behind him and win his heat race for a chance at the redraw.  The crew again went to work and as luck was not on our side Jimmy pulled the dreaded 8 pill for Andy's spot in the A main event.  At the start of the feature on lap one Andy was caught up in a accident and with minor damage Andy tagged the rear of the field and with the motor humming was able to work his way up to 9th from the 18th position.

     This upcoming weekend there are no races on Friday July 19th and on Saturday July 20th the F&F X1 heads back to Placerville CA for a points race.

Long Night Culminates with 9th Place Finish at Placerville Speedway for Andy Forsberg

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fighting mechanical gremlins all night long Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would then overcome an opening lap incident to finish ninth in the feature event.

“It was an absolute hot mess of a night,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in and something wasn’t right under the hood, and the F&F guys worked on it all night long. We still didn’t have it right in our heat, and they kept at it. We got it right for the feature, and then we got collected in an opening lap wreck, so it was eventful to say the least.”

Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in 15th fastest in time trials, Forsberg was still able to grab the heat race win despite something amiss under the hood of his machine.

Making the redraw, the vaunted eight pill would put the point leader in the fourth row of the 25-lap feature event. Continuing to change things and find the culprit, things seemed to be back to normal when the fired off for the feature event.

When the race went green, a couple of cars would get upside down in front of the field, and with nowhere to go contact would ensue to the top wing of Forsberg’s machine and he would be forced to the work area.

Able to restart, the Auburn, CA driver had his work cut out for himself from the back of the pack. Patiently working his way forward, Forsberg to do a great job of salvaging a trying night as he clawed his way up to finish ninth.

“Big thanks to my guys for not giving up,” Forsberg said. “It has just been feast of famine it seems like this year, and Saturday was no feast. We will try again this weekend.”

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.

Forsberg Finds Redemption at Placerville Speedway with Second Place Finish

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting upside down on the opening lap of the Sprint Car Challenge Tour feature event at Placerville Speedway one week ago, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing came back strong on the 4th of July and picked up a second place finish.

“We have torn some stuff up the last few weeks and my guys did a great job of getting another car together,” Forsberg said. “We are down to a car that I am not too fond of, but we had a decent night on Thursday and we will build on it.”

With 26 cars checked in for the Holiday race, Forsberg would time the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in second fastest in qualifications.

Lining up in the second row for his heat race, Forsberg would take care of business, as his third place finish would be enough to move into the nightly redraw.

Not having the best luck in the draw on this night, Forsberg would find himself with the eighth pill, meaning he would take the green flag for the 25-lap affair from the fourth row.

Using a strong start to the feature event, Forsberg would make a couple of nice moves as he jumped up into the third position as chased after the lead duo of Shane Golobic and Tony Gualda.

Taking over the second position just after the halfway point, Forsberg would turn his attention to Shane Golobic, but the race leader was just too good on this night.

With Golobic committed to the bottom, Forsberg would just to make the top work but couldn’t get close enough to try anything. When Ron Stahl waived the checkered flag, Forsberg capped another strong night at the speedway with a second place finish.

“Congrats to the 17 team, they were just a step ahead of us all night,’ Forsberg said. “Again, want to thank everyone that works on this car and supports us. It has been tough at times but we don’t seem to miss a beat.”

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. 

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Disappointing Weekend   

Monday July 1, 2019 12:22pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday June 28th the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico, CA for a points show. Andy was 2nd quick out of 19 cars, finished 2nd in the dash and started in the 6th position for the A main event. Andy was pressuring for the 4th position when that car did a 1/2 spin in front of Andy and unfortunately contact was made and Andy did a tommy tip over, there was minor damage to the car the crew made repairs and for the 3rd time this year Andy would need to make a charge from the rear of the field. Andy was able to claw his way back to a 9th place finish.

    On Saturday both the F&F X1 360 and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 were in Placerville for the NARC and SCCT double-header.  For the NARC 410 portion Andy set quick time and went from 4th to 3rd in his heat race this gave him enough points to qualify for the dash redraw where he would start 2nd and finish in the lead for a pole position in the A main event. Wanted to thank Sunny valley for the generous portion of bacon we shared and have already received calls that it was delicious.  The A main event Andy was on rails and for the first 28 laps looked to have the race in the bag but unfortunately in lapped traffic coming to the white flag Andy chose the wrong line to get by a lapped car causing him to have to slow down and lose his momentum the loss of speed left Andy vulnerable to the cars on his tail and the result was a 3rd place finish at the checkered flag.

    For the SCCT 360 portion Andy was 2nd quick in his group, finished 3rd in the heat race and would start 12th in the A main event. Andy did not make it to lap 1 as he hooked the backstretch and flipped the car once again and this caused major frame damage and another disappointing DNF.  Unfortunately the damaged car could not be repaired in time to make the SCCT Petaluma race the following night and this would be the first race that the F&F X1 has missed an SCCT show since it started in 2017.  The F&F Crew has worked hard keeping Andy in the seat but sometimes when things are just not going as planned its time to take a step back, re-group and hope for a little luck next time. 

     This upcoming week has the Forsberg Family #92 in Marysville on Wednesday July 3rd for the Fireworks Race and on Thursday July 4th in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1 for a points show and Fireworks Show.  Andy will be back in action on Saturday July 6th driving the F&F X1 in Stockton CA for another SCCT show hoping for better results.

Opening Lap Wreck Ends Andy Forsberg’s Night at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Checking in at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night to battle with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Andy Forsberg was involved in an opening lap wreck that ended his night, and ultimately his weekend.

“We had a pretty good car all night long, but unfortunately I tested out the backstretch banking on the opening lap, and it didn’t do us any favors and ended our weekend,” Andy Forsberg said. “It wasn’t ideal, but thank to my guys for always working hard for me.”

With 28 cars checked in for SCCT action, Forsberg timed the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in second quickest in his qualifying group.

Lining up third in his heat race, ‘Mr. Excitement’ would hold the status quo as he would finish third and transfer directly into the 35-lap feature event, where he sought after his second series win of the 2019 season.

Taking the green flag from the 12th position, Forsberg’s night would be short lived as amidst the chaos of the start of the race, he would get up on the back stretch banking and it resulted in his machine getting over and causing damage to his machine ending his night.

As the team looked over the car in the pit area, the damage was extensive and they were forced to forego Sunday’s race in Petaluma, CA.

“It was definitely a bummer of a weekend, and we all hated to miss the trip to Petaluma, CA,” Forsberg said. “The guys will work hard the next few days, and we will be back on Thursday night for the 4th of July show.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Thursday night for the annual July 4th program.

Hard Fought 2nd!   

Monday June 24, 2019 10:32am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday June 22nd Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Placerville, CA for a points show.  Things started off a little crazy with Andy qualifying 6th out of 30 cars. Andy's second lap of qualifying he jumped the cushion and took a small detour in doing so he packed the radiator with mud and the crew had to replace it with a new one, the crew worked hard and got Andy to his heat race just in time.  Andy went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race all with having no rear brake as the caliper sheered off on lap #1. The crew once again went to work and fixed the car.  Andy started in position #4 for the start of the A main event.  At the wave of the green Andy made some moves and moved into 2nd and began the chase on the leader, unfortunately more craziness came Andy's way as a lapped car spun into Andy fortunately Andy was able to keep the car going but the right rear shock was broke off, the watts link was broke and the right rear tire had a slow leak and with all this carnage Andy still managed to finish in the 2nd position. The crew checked the tire pressure when Andy came in and it had 1.6 pounds of air in it.  The gang never quit and neither did Andy and the result was a hard fought 2nd place finish. 

This upcoming weekend Andy will be in Chico, CA on Friday June 28th for a points race driving the Forsberg Family #92 and on Saturday Andy will be doing double duty in Placerville, CA driving the F&F X1 with the SCCT series and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 with NARC. On Sunday the F&F X1 heads to Petaluma, CA for another SCCT series Race.

Andy Forsberg Hangs On to Second at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Despite enduring damage to the right rear corner of his car after contact with a stalled car, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing were able to hang on to a second place finish at Placerville Speedway.

“What a night,” Andy Forsberg said. “Time trials saw me try and qualify using the turn three hill, it didn’t work. Caused some damage that the guys fixed before the heat, and we ended up making the redraw. Then in the feature contact with a spinning car ripped our right rear shock off, and knocked the watts link off, and somehow we still ran second.”

Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in fifth fastest despite an excursion on his second lap, Forsberg would pick up a second place finish in his heat race.

Having some luck on his side, Forsberg would sneak into the redraw where the four pill put him in the second row of the feature event, where he would look for his fifth win of the year with F&F Racing.

When the green flag flew, Forsberg would put his right rear on the cushion and jump into the second position as he chased after Shane Hopkins.

With the race getting into an early groove, the first 14 laps would rip off caution free. In those first 14 laps, Forsberg would find himself in a tight battle for second as he raced with Tony Gualda and Kalib Henry as they chased after Hopkins.

With a car slowing on the 14th lap, Forsberg would make heavy contact with him as he had nowhere to go, and it would cause suspension damage to his machine.

Despite the issues, Forsberg would do all he could over the final nine laps, and it paid off as he held on to a second place finish.

“Big thanks to the F&F guys,” Forsberg said. “It was just a wild night for us, but pretty cool to get a second place finish with all of the issues. Two big nights for us on tap this weekend.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night and the Petaluma Speedway on Sunday night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

Wrong Place Wrong Time, Forsberg’s Night Ends Early in Hanford, CA

 

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time on Saturday night in Hanford, CA, a spinning car would collect Andy Forsberg before being hit by another car, which brought his night to an end on the ninth circuit.

“We had a decent night going” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in pretty well, but missed the Dash. I felt like we were making a little headway in the feature, but a car spun in front of me and I clipped him and then got hit by someone else pretty good and it ended our night on the ninth lap.”

Looking to grab his second SCCT win of the season, Forsberg and F&F Racing made the trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Saturday night. Getting the night started off well, Forsberg timed the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in second quickest in his qualifying group.

Heat race action saw Forsberg get off to a nice start as he dipped low and grabbed the early lead, while much of the field went to work on the top.

With the top tricky, Forsberg stayed on the bottom but it would get him as he would end up finishing third after an entertaining 10-lap heat.

Not qualifying for the Dash, Forsberg would still transfer into the feature event where he rolled off the starting grid from the 11th position. With the track still a bit tricky in the feature event, Forsberg would break into the Top-10, as he slowly made headway as untimely cautions would undo his maneuvering.

On the race’s 10th lap, things went array for the Auburn, CA pilot as a spinning car in turn four left him with nowhere to go and he would make contact with his front end, and as that happened another car would make contact to the right rear corner of Forsberg’s entry and finish his night off.

“Pretty big bummer,’ Forsberg said. “It is never good to tear stuff up, and it seems as if we have our worst luck at these SCCT races for whatever reason. Still, thanks to my guys for continuing to work hard for me. We have a couple races coming up at tracks we are usually pretty good at, so I am hoping we can shake this off and get back up front.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.  

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-14, Wins-4, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-9.

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 in 2019.

     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 ¼ 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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be in action on Saturday night at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA with the SCCT.

Forsberg and F&F Racing Second at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway for the first time since early May, And Forsberg and F&F Racing were oh-so-close to capturing their third consecutive feature event win on the ¼ mile bullring, but instead settled for a second place finish.

“It was a good night for our F&F Racing team,” Andy Forsberg said. “The track was really slick early in the night, and we were good enough to make the redraw, and in the feature, after a little re work, things were going our way but Shane Golobic was just better when it slicked back off and we ran second.”

With 32 cars packing the pit area on Saturday night for the fifth points paying event of the year, Forsberg would time the Econo-Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in fifth fastest in time trials.

Finishing fourth in his heat race, one of the top-four qualifiers would fail to transfer form their heat, and Forsberg would luck into a redraw position where the foul placed him in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

Getting into third as he chased after CJ Humphries and Michael Faccinto in the early goings, Forsberg would get into the race’s top spot on the sixth lapped as he worked the famed Placerville Speedway cushion.

A caution on the ninth lap as the leaders were getting into traffic would give Forsberg a clear track as he continued to set the pace as he searched for his third consecutive win at the track he has called home over the years.

As Shane Golobic closed in on him as the race clicked past the halfway point, a lap 15 move would see Forsberg slip back to second as the leaders again approached traffic.

With Golobic getting away, a couple of late cautions would put Forsberg on the leader’s rear bumper but he simply had nothing for Golobic as he closed the night out with a second place finish.

“We are still working to get better on the slick stuff, but we are heading the right direction for sure,” Forsberg said. “The re worked definitely helped in my opinion, but once it slowed back down I was hanging on, but like I said, still great to get back on the podium.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-3, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-8.

Memorial Day Weekend  

Monday May 27, 2019 11:00am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday May 25th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Stockton CA for the Jimmy Sills Classic non-points show.  The format was no qualifying 2-heat format.  Andy went from 9th to 8th in his first heat race and from 1st to 4th in his 2nd heat race.  The points total accumulation put Andy in a starting position of 15th for the feature. The X1 crew used the main event for a research and development session to try to get the 1/2 mile program tuned up a notch but Andy just bounced around the 12th position most of the race and on lap 22 Andy flew off the track in turn 2 and just pulled into the pits and called it a night. 

     On Sunday May 26th the Forsberg Family #92 was suppose to be in Marysville CA for the Mel Hall Memorial but unfortunately the crazy CA weather continued and the Sunday show was cancelled for rain out #10 of 2019.

     This upcoming weekend there are no races on Friday May 31st and on Saturday June 1st Andy will be in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1.

Peter Murphy Classic SCCT Race  

Monday May 20, 2019 5:45pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday May 17th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Tulare CA for night #1 of the Peter Murphy Classic SCCT show. Andy was 5th quick in his group of qualifying, missing the pole of his heat by .001, this put him in the 5th starting position for his heat race and would need to win to get into the dash or finish in a top 5 to transfer to the A.  Andy did transfer into the A with a 5th place finish but would have to start deep in the field in position 17.  Andy did a good job making up a few spots early, avoided the typical Thunderbowl carnage and by lap 10 was in the 10th spot but the track was now laying rubber and with 20 laps still left saving tires became the main priority.  As everyone else did the same thing Andy would just get in line and cross the checkered in 10th. This would be Andy's first actual finish at the Thunderbowl since 2015!  The following nights event would be cancelled do to rain.  

     Big shout out to the F&F X1 gang for rebuilding the dedicated big track car that had been destroyed at the last SCCT race in Stockton on April 12th, chassis was repaired and picked up on Friday and the team had it ready by Thursday. (see flip photo)

     This upcoming weekend Saturday May 25th the F&F X1 heads back to Stockton for the Jimmy Sills Classic and on Sunday May 26th the Forsberg Family #92 will be in Marysville CA for the Mel Hall Memorial.

Forsberg Finishes 10th in Tulare, CA

 

PETERSEN MEDIA- With the Thunderbowl Raceway typically not kind to him, Andy Forsberg was happy to close Friday night’s feature out with a 10th place finish with the F&F Racing team.

“TO finish 10th at Thunderbowl Raceway is great,” Andy Forsberg said. “Heading into Friday’s event, I think the last time I actually finished a race there was back in 2014 or something. So, as they say to finish first, first you must finish so we accomplished that.”

With 40 cars checked in for Friday night’s Peter Murphy Classic opener, Forsberg would be in a tight qualifying group as he timed in fifth quickest in his group, missing out on fourth and a front row heat race starting position by .001 seconds.

Finding himself in the third row of his heat, the Auburn, CA driver would race the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 machine to a fifth place finish and punch his ticket into the 30-lap feature event.

Gridding the field from the 17th starting position, Forsberg would do a great job of avoiding a multi car wreck that took place getting into turn one as the field attempted to complete the first lap of the race.

Avoiding another wreck down the back stretch on the restart, Forsberg would take what he was given as he would start the race from just outside the Top-10 once thing settled down.

The slick surface that was offered up to the field on Friday night would soon take rubber, and Forsberg would settle into 10th, after a few laps of jockeying for position.

Keeping his tires securely in the rubber, where much of the field was, Forsberg would do what it took to get to the finish line as he accepted the checkered flag with a 10th place finish.

“We did a great job of avoiding some of the early carnage, and were able to pick up some easy spots,” Forsberg added. “I think I may have only passed one or two cars before the rubber came, but we did what we had to do from the back and came away with a Top-10.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg are scheduled to take part in Saturday night’s event at Stockton Dirt Track.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-10, Wins-3, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-7.

Tuesday May 14, 2019 9:27am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday May 10th the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico, CA for a points show.  Andy was 2nd quick out of 27 cars which locked him into the feature automatically.  Andy drew the #5 pill for the dash and finished 6th in the dash lining him up in position 10 for the feature.  Andy never really set the world on fire throughout the main event he methodically worked his way up to a hard fought 4th place finish. 

     On Saturday May 11th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Placerville, CA for a points race, Andy set quick time out of 22 cars, ran 4th in his heat race earning himself a shot in the redraw, and he drew a #4 for his starting position in the A main event.  Andy made short work of the field and by lap #6 he was in the lead.  Once in the lead Andy was never challenged and went on to win his 2nd consecutive race in Placerville and his 4th for 2019.

This upcoming weekend Friday May 17th and Saturday May 18th Andy and the F&F X1 head to Tulare CA for a SCCT double header (Peter Murphy Classic)

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Go Back to Back at Placerville Speedway

  

PETERSEN MEDIA- One week after scoring his 60th career Placerville Speedway feature event win, Andy Forsberg wasted no time grabbing his 61st, as he bested a talented field of cars assembled at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

“The first couple of starts really didn’t go my way, but luckily there was a couple of redo’s and I figured it out, and was able to get this car back into victory lane,” Andy Forsberg said.

Jumping into second quickly after taking the green flag from the fourth starting position, Forsberg would find himself chasing after Jodie Robinson, who was up front out early.

Battling with Robinson’s father early in his career, the new age Robinson Vs Forsberg battle saw the Auburn, CA driver jump into the lead on the race’s fourth lap following a restart.

Working the bottom groove, Forsberg would lead the way but young Robinson was persistent as she went to work on the high, scary side of the speedway.

As the yellow flew on the seventh lap, Forsberg would opt to change lines as he would now work the top and force Robinson to try elsewhere as he worked the Placerville Speedway cushion.

The final restart on lap 14, saw Forsberg get away from the field and get into traffic during the waning laps. With action going on behind him, Forsberg would cruise to the win by over 2 seconds, as he picked up his third win of the season on the famed red dirt.

Early in the night, Forsberg would get off to a great start as he earned quick time honors aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed entry.

“These youngsters are getting better and better each week, and it is not good for old guys like myself,” Andy Forsberg said with a smile. “We will keep them behind us as long as we can, but still feels great to get a win.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg head to Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA this Friday and Saturday night for the Peter Murphy Classic with the SCCT.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-9, Wins-3, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-6.

Win #3!  

Monday May 6, 2019 9:59am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday May 3rd Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 headed to Chico, CA for the 410 Bill Brownell Memorial Race. Andy was 5th quick out of 32 cars, went from 3rd to 4th in his heat race and started 6th in the A main event. In the feature Andy never really got anything going the entire race, he admitted after the race the was not bad he just could not get any of his moves to work and the results were a disappointing 12th place finish. 

     On Saturday May 4th Andy was in Placerville, CA driving the F&F X1 for Big Trophy night. Andy was 2nd quick out of 21 cars, went from 4th to 1st in his heat race and would pull the dreaded 8 pill for the main event.  Andy battled around 8th -6th for the first 10 laps but on a lap 11 restart it was time for him to make some moves and by lap 20 he had claimed the top spot and would cross the finish line as the winner.  This is Andy's 3rd win of 2019 and his 60th career win at Placerville.

This upcoming weekend Andy will be in Chico, CA driving the Forsberg Family #92 for a Silver Dollar Speedway 360 points race and on Saturday May 11th he heads back to Placerville, CA driving the F&F X1 for a 360 points race.

Andy Forsberg Captures 60th Career Placerville Speedway Feature Event Win

  

PETERSEN MEDIA- A tough month of April for Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing quickly became an afterthought as the Auburn, CA driver opened May up by claiming his 60th career feature event win at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

“It was a really good night, and it is always good to cap things off in victory lane,” Andy Forsberg said. “In the feature things weren’t going my way early, but then they started too and we were able to make up some ground and get the lead late.”

Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed NO. x1 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials, Forsberg would turn in an impressive showing in his heat race where he would advance from fourth to pick up the win.

Moving into the nightly redraw, Forsberg would find himself with the eighth pill, but would eventually grid the field from the seventh spot with another competitor late to the draw.

When the green flag dropped, Forsberg would get off to a bit of a slow start, though he would continue to run inside the Top-10. A late 11 restart would be just what the Auburn, CA driver needed as he would make some serious headway and jump up to fourth after restarting eighth.

Restarting from fourth on a lap 13 restart, Forsberg would get the best of Jimmy Trulli before getting under Kalib Henry to take over the runner up position on the 15th lap as he began to chase after Tony Gualda.

With five laps to go Forsberg would nail another restart as he would get by Gualda to take command of the race just before the yellow flew one lap later. Going back to green for the final time, Forbserg would not be denied as he would lead the rest of the way to claim his 60th career win at Placerville Speedway, and his second of the season at the track he calls home.

“I had a bunch of restarts starting on the outside, and that is really where I wanted to be and it helped us move up,” Forsberg said. “I am happy with night, F&F is happy with the night, and hopefully all of our partners are happy with the 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 2019.

ON TAP: F&F Racing returns to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with Andy Forsberg.

SCCT Round #4

Monday April 29, 2019 10:27am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday April 27th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Petaluma, CA for round #4 of the SCCT series.  Andy was 2nd quick in his group, went from 3rd to 2nd in his heat race which was not good enough to make the dash so he started 10th in the A main event behind the dash cars.  Andy ran 8th to 12th for the first half of the race when the left rear tire came off the inner bead causing Andy to spin out and slight contact was made with another car cutting down the left front tire as well.  the X1 gang changed both tires getting Andy back out to get a 15th place finish.

     On Friday May 3rd the A&A #92 410 will be in action for the Bill Brownell Memorial race and on Saturday May 4th Andy will be in Placerville CA for a points race.

Late Issue Hinders Forsberg in Petaluma, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to work with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour over the weekend, Andy Forsberg would get out of shape late in the race, and contact would cut down his left side tires and knock him out of the Top-10.

“We had a decent night going, and then I went and got out of shape and contact ensued giving up a couple of flat tires,” Andy Forsberg said. “We came in and made repairs but it was pretty fast and tough to make up ground from the back and we ended up 15th.”

With 26 cars checked in, Forsberg would time the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in second quickest in his group for time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the driver who hails from Auburn, CA would pick up a second place finish which would be good enough to place him in the 10th starting position for the 35-lap feature event.

Not unusual for Petaluma Speedway, moisture in the surface would come back prior to the feature event and the track would be fast which some rough patches for the 35-lap affair.

Running in the 10th position for much of the night, Forsberg would get out of shape on the 23rd lap, and contact would lead to both left side tires getting cut down as he came to a stop and brought out the caution flag.

Taking his machine to the work area, the F&F Racing crew was able to change both tires and get Forsberg back out to tag the rear of the field.

Able to pick up a couple of positions in the final stanza of the race, Forsberg would end his night with a 15th place finish. 

“It has definitely been an interesting couple of weeks for our team, but the guys are working hard, and we have a fast car,” Forsberg added. “We will look to get back in victory lane this weekend in Placerville, CA.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing returns to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with Andy Forsberg.

50-50 Weekend   

Tuesday April 23, 2019 12:38pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

    On Friday April 19th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico, CA for Silver Dollar Speedway 1st points show.  Andy was 5th quick out of 27 cars, which with the new format automatically locked him into the feature main event.  The top 6 qualifiers run a fast heat-dash which lines up rows 3, 4 & 5 behind the 4 heat race winners in row 1 & 2.  Andy started 3rd in the dash and finished 2nd which lined him up 6th in the feature.  The feature saw Andy battling for 4th when he got caught in a racing accident, unfortunately causing Andy to get upside down for the 2nd week in a row.

     On Saturday April 20th Andy was in Placerville, CA driving the F&F X1. Andy was 6th quick out of 28 cars.  Andy went 3rd to 1st in his heat race and started in the 5th position in the feature.  Andy basically minded his own business the entire race and finished 3rd and rolled the X1 into the trailer in one piece.

This upcoming weekend on Friday April 26th there are no races. On Saturday April 27th the F&F X1 heads to Petaluma, CA for round #4 of the SCCT series.

     On Friday April 12th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Stockton CA for night #1 of the Asparagus Cup SCCT double-header weekend.  Andy was 4th quick in his group, had a tough heat and did not transfer.  Andy won the B main from the outside front row and would start 21st in the A main event.  Andy had made up a few positions but on lap 10 Andy made heavy contact with the turn 4 wall sending Andy into a series of flips, Andy was OK, but the car was a complete loss. (See pictures) 

     On Saturday April 13th Andy and the F&F X1 crew rolled out the spare car.  Andy qualified 7th in his group and transferred with a last lap pass for that final transfer spot.  Andy started 18th in the A main event.  Andy immediately struggled to get going and by lap 8 he was down a lap and at that point he pulled in to save the car for another night.  A frustrating ending to a already rough weekend. 

This upcoming weekend things look to get back to normal as Andy will be in Chico CA Friday April 19th driving the Forsberg Family #92 for the 1st points show of 2019.  On Saturday April 20th Andy will be in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1 for a regular track points show. 

Thank you all for all the well wishes and concern for Andy he wants everyone to know he is doing just fine, its part of racing to crash, Andy does not do it very often but he feels very lucky to have great crew members, owners, sponsors, family and friends to get him back out on the track each and every night and put a car under him that is safe.

WoO In Town 

Monday March 18, 2019 12:14pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday March 15th Andy made his first 410 start in 2019 driving the A&A Stepping Stone #92 in Chico, CA with the World of Outlaws.  Andy was 6th quick, struggled in his heat race starting 3rd and dropping back to 5th and would start in the 20th position in the A main event.  Andy bounced around from 16th to 20th for the first 10 laps just was not going any where or making in head way so on a lap 12 caution Andy had enough and pulled in, with nothing to gain Andy chose to save laps on the car and motor for another night of racing.  This was not the results he was looking for but considering it was the first 410 race of 2019 and the first night on this chassis a 6th in qualifying and making the show with the WOO was successful. Once back in Auburn Friday night the crew swapped out the Woo Hoosiers for CA Hoosiers for the following nights race in Marysville, CA for a 360 points show.  Andy was 2nd quick out of 17 cars, went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and would start 5th for the A main event.  The track was difficult for passing as the bottom was real fast and with all the cars plugging up the bottom Andy tried moving to the top of the track, unfortunately it was the long way around and Andy just could not make up any ground on the leaders so he tried rolling through the middle and it was too slick and Andy spun to a stop in the 5th position.  With only 5 laps to go again Andy called it a night.

This upcoming weekend on Friday March 22nd the Forsberg Family #92 kicks off its Silver Dollar Speedway 360 points season in Chico, CA and on Saturday March 23rd Andy will be back the A&A Stepping Stone #92 in Placerville CA for another chance at the World of Outlaws.

Toller Memorial Race 

Win #1 

Monday March 11, 2019 10:49am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

On Saturday March 9th the Forsberg Family #92 was in Marysville CA for the Toller Family Memorial - CA Civil War opener.  Unfortunately crazy weather throughout the day caused a very low turn out of cars to show up.  There were only 5 that made the attempt so officials decided to forgo qualifying and do a 2 heat format.  Andy won both of his heat races from the 3rd position.  Andy won the dash from the 5th position and started on the pole of the A main event and led all 20 laps that went non-stop and lasted 6 minutes, obviously not Andy's proudest win but a race was run and someone had to win it. The combination of a handful of teams not being able to cross the Donner summit or the Siskiyou Summit do to snow conditions a handful of teams bailed on the North State for more weather friendly race in the Central Valley and a handful of teams that just did not think the show would get off were the factors that led to such a low car count.

This upcoming weekend on Friday March 15th Andy makes his 1st 410 start in the A&A Stepping Stone #92 with the World of Outlaws in Chico, CA and on Saturday March 16th the Forsberg Family #92 will be back in Marysville CA for a MRP points race.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10-Time Champ Forsberg Wins Civil War Opener

Marysville, CA (March 10, 2019) Auburns Andy Forsberg bested a light field of Civil War Sprint Cars to win his 33rd career Civil War main event. Threatening skies and cold temperature damped the car count and fan turn-out but give promoter Dennis Gage credit for pushing the envelope and getting the first race of 2019 in at Marysville. 
The 10-time champion of the series clean swept the night by winning both heat races, the dash and the 20-lap main event. With the light car count, officials scratched qualifying and went to a two-heat race format. Forsberg won the dash and picked up an extra $100 from the Hall family. He also grabbed another $100 from the Hall family by winning the main event. Forsberg left Marysville $2700 richer for his efforts. Troy White, racing photographer and all-around great guy, added an extra $100 split between the two last place finishers in the main event. The race was also in tribute to the Sherm and Loree Toller. It was great to see the Toller family in attendance. 
Koen Shaw made the long tow from Fresno to compete at the Civil War opener. Shaw was able to finish in the second spot. Fifteen-year-old standout Blake Carrick raced hard all night. He finished second in both heat races, after leading a majority of both, and went on to finish third in the main event. Justin Henry and Pat Harvey finished fourth and fifth. 
Undeniably, the IMCA Pepsi Sport Mods were the show tonight. Eighteen drivers attended the first Marysville point show of the season. The 20-lap main event was spectacular. Keith Brown led most of the race. Hard charging Guy Ahlwardt was able to use a slower car to his advantage and pass Brown late in the race for the lead. This seemed to get Brown back up in the driver
s seat and pressure Ahlwardt. With less than two laps to go, Ahlwardt slipped up a bit and Brown took advantage of it. Brown motored by Ahlwardt to regain the lead. Brown led the field back to the checkered flag and got the win. Ahlwardt finished second. Brian Cooper was solid all night, as usual. Cooper was also right in the mix for the win but ultimately brought his familiar No. 17c home in the third spot. Cooper started ninth. 
It is always fun to watch Jimmy Ford race. He never gives up and drives with a ton of passion. Tonight, was no different. Ford started seventh and methodically worked his way into fourth. He had a great battle with Todd Cooper around the half way point of the main event. Cooper was a nice addition to the division again. The former Silver Dollar Speedway champion had been sorely missed in 2018. Hopefully Cooper in seen a lot more around the raceway in 2019. It was also good to see Philip Shelby. Unfortunately, Shelby retired with a mechanical failure early in the event but before that, was up front running with the leaders. 
Darren Johnson won the 15-lap Crate Sprint car main event. Johnson held an almost three-second lead at the finish line. Brett Youngman finished comfortably in the second spot. Youngman was the winner of the lone eight-lap heat race. Mike Sayre started fourth and ended up third. Cameron Haney Jr. ran second for most of the race and challenged for the lead on lap nine but entered turn three too high and spun around. He finished fifth. Kiely Ricardo finished fourth. Mike Ballentine rounded out the top six. 
Racing resumes this Saturday night, March 16th, with a full night of championship racing.

Race #1 of 2019

Monday February 25, 2019 10:43am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday February 23rd Andy's 2019 racing season kicked off in Stockton, CA driving the F&F X1.  Weather has been an issue so far this year.  On Saturday February 9th a practice day for both the Forsberg Family #92 and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 was rained out.  On Saturday February 16th the MRP opener was rained out so it was nice to beat Mother Nature this weekend.  The Stockton show used a non-qualifying 2-heat format. Andy won his first heat race from the pole and finished 6th in his 2nd heat race from an 8th starting position.  These combined results put Andy in the redraw.  Full time pill puller Jimmy Wall drew the #2 pill and Andy started the A main event from the outside front row.  Andy was able to overtake the lead on lap 2 but lost the lead on a lap 3 double file restart, at this point Andy chased the leader for the remaining 27 laps that went non-stop.  Appearing to have 2nd in the bag on the white flag lap the motor began to slow fortunately Andy nursed it to a 3rd place finish, unfortunately the 1st night motor has severe damage. (See picture)

     This upcoming weekend on Friday March 1st and Saturday March 2nd the F&F X1 heads to Chico, CA for the Silver Cup, last year Andy and the F&F X1 swept the weekend.  Weather is going to be an issue so everyone keep your fingers crossed because it is not looking good.

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Open Season with Third Place Finish

  

PETERSEN MEDIA- Leading the early laps during Saturday afternoon’s feature at Stockton Dirt Track, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would open their season with a third place finish despite having engine issues coming to the checkered flag.

“It was the first race of the season and naturally we had some opening night bugs to work through both on and off the track,” Andy Forsberg said with a smile. “I had some rust to shake off and that showed with a heat race spin, but overall things went well until something went south under the hood on the last lap.”

Lining up on the front row of his first heat race Saturday, Forsberg would get the jump aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry. Despite being challenged by Willie Croft late, Forsberg would grab the win, which would be crucial for nightly points.

From the last row of his second heat, Forsberg would actually lose the handle on his machine in the closing laps and spin to a stop in turn four. Able to rally the best he could, as a sixth place finish made him the last eligible car for the redraw.

With a little luck on his side, the two-pill put him on the front row of the 30-lap feature event. Leading the first lap before the caution flew, Forsberg would lead the next two circuits before the race’s final caution was needed on lap three.

The restart would see Tony Gualda beat him into turns one and two, and Forsberg would spend the duration of the race giving chase. Trying a little of everything, running the top, rolling the bottom, and even trying to float the middle of the track, Forsberg could not seem to reel in the leader.

Mired by lapped cars late in the race, Forsberg would feel pressure from Ryan Bernal for second at times but would continue to hold the spot.

With the white flag waiving, Forsberg would begin to lose power in his machine, but was still able to hang on and claim the final spot on the podium with the waiving of the checkered flag.

“We kind of had our struggles last year on the bigger tracks, so it was a good test for us to try and find something that works,” Forsberg noted.  “It is definitely a bummer to have issues at the end of our night, but my guys did a great job all night long and I am looking forward to what 2019 has in store.”

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.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back to work this Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA as they will look to defend their Silver Cup Title.  

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-1, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-1.
