Vermeil-Gold Cup-Platinum Cup Week  

Monday September 13, 2021 12:15pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday September 3rd Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 were in Chico CA for night #1 of the Louie Vermeil Classic NARC 410 race. Andy was 9th quick, won his heat race and went from 4th to 2nd in the dash for his starting spot in the A main event. Andy faded quickly and ended up in a tangle where he flipped and unfortunately oncoming traffic made contact with the A&A Stepping Stone #92 while in flight causing heavy damage to the car and frame ending Andy's week of running the last night of the Vermeil and running with the World of Outlaws for Gold Cup.

     On Wednesday September 8th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 ran night #1 of the 360 Platinum Cup. Andy was 5th quick in his group, ran 4th in his heat race and started 15th in the A main where he just was not going anywhere so he pulled off the track and decided to take his chances Thursday to re-qualify hoping to earn more points.

     On Thursday September 9th Andy's decision to scratch Wednesday and start from scratch proved to be the right choice as he set quick time in his group, finished 3rd in his heat race and Jimmy pulled the #2 pill for Andy's starting position in the A main event. It was apparent at the wave of the green that the team gave Andy a car to be reckoned with as Andy took the early lead and never looked back to lead all 30 laps claiming his 7th win of 2021 and earned enough points to put him on the front row of the Platinum Cup A main event. 

     On Saturday September 11th it was an A feature only for Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 and again the crew did their job and gave Andy a spectacular car as Andy again took the early lead and led all 30 laps to score the $5,000 to win Platinum Cup Championship and his 8th win of 2021.

This upcoming weekend has Andy with no races but he will be back in action on September 25th in Petaluma CA for the 9th Annual Adobe Cup. 

Forsberg Racing would like to say thank you to all the sponsors, families, friends and fans that gave us everything they had to make this past week a memory for the ages. It was so much fun to visit and share in the excitement with everyone.

Forsberg Earns Platinum at Gold Cup
 

Auburn’s Andy Forsberg captured his 57th career main event win at Silver Dollar Speedway by leading all 30-laps of the Platinum Cup finale during the Saturday night Gold Cup Race of Champions. Forsberg started in the front row with Wednesday night winner Colby Copeland. Copeland earned the highest points over the two nights and started from the pole position. Behind Forsberg it was an all-out war between Copeland, Cory Day, and Dominic Scelzi. On lap 15 Scelzi passed both Day and Copeland to move into the second spot.

 

Forsberg survived two late race cautions on lap 17 and lap 25. Scelzi tried everything he could to slide Forsberg for the lead. Yet, we all appreciate that Scelzi went for it, but didn’t force a wreck to win the race. “He raced me like a gentleman,” said Forsberg in victory lane. “I was concerned on those restarts because I knew how great Dominic is and how great he has been this season.”
 

Copeland came home in the third spot. Day held onto fourth. Justyn Cox continued to be a strong presence at Chico and finished fifth. Kyle Hirst drove up to the sixth spot. Seventh went to Ryan Robinson, who at one point was a top five car. The overall main event was spectacular, and all 24 drivers should be proud that they made the show. The week saw 55 different drivers compete over the four-night format.

 

Jayson Bright started 15th and finished eighth. What is so impressive about his run this week is that he came out of the Friday night C main event. Other drivers that came out of the Friday night C main and made the Saturday night main event included Stephen Ingraham, finished 13th, Nick Larsen (16th), and Brian McGahan Jr. (17th). Congratulations to those four drivers who need to be recognized for their impressive efforts.

Forsberg Wins Tyler Wolf Memorial 

8th Placerville Track Championship

23rd Career Championship  

Monday August 23, 2021 10:41am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Friday August 20th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico CA for the Tyler Wolf Memorial Race.  Andy set quick time out of 36 cars, finished 4th in his heat race putting him in the redraw where Jimmy Wall pulled the 7 pill for Andy's starting position in the A main event.  Andy did not get a good start and was shuffled back to the 9th position but with caution free laps ahead Andy got into his groove and by lap 11 he had taken the lead and was never challenged winning his 5th race of 2021 and his 2nd Tyler Wolf Memorial. 

     On Saturday August 21st Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Watsonville CA for the 55th Annual Johnny Key Classic and SCCT show.  Andy was 4th quick in his group of qualifying, finished 5th in his heat race and started 18th in the A main event where he made up a few spots, inherited a couple spots and with 20 laps to go it rubbered down and became a 1 lane parade finishing 13th. 

    This upcoming weekend on Saturday August 28th the F&F X1 was supposed to be in Placerville for the Final Championship points race but unfortunately the Caldor Fire turned the El Dorado Fairgrounds into a fire camp canceling the final points show.  With points racing being complete Andy will win the 2021 Placerville Track Championship making this his 8th career Placerville Championship and his 23rd career championship.

   The Forsberg Family #92 will be in Marysville CA on Saturday the 28th and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 will be in Petaluma CA for a NARC 410 race on Sunday the 29th.

Andy Forsberg 13th at Johnny Key Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Following the Sprint Car Challenge Tour to Watsonville, CA on Saturday night, Andy Forsberg and the F&F Racing team would pick up a 13th place finish at the Johnny Key Classic.

“It was a pretty stout field of cars that showed up for the ‘Key’, and we found ourselves in a pretty stout qualifying and heat race group,” Forsberg said. “We timed in fourth in our group and got off to a good start in our heat, but a yellow lined us up on the outside for a restart and we slipped back to finish fifth.”

With a total of 48-cars checked in for the famed event, Forsberg would find himself in a tough qualifying group but was able to time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in fourth fastest amongst the other 11 cars in his group.

Lining up on the inside of the second row for heat race action, the Auburn, CA driver got off to a nice start as he jumped into the second position. Running in second, a mid-race caution would line the field back up in double file formation and would change the complexion of Forsberg’s heat race.

Finding himself on the outside lane, Forsberg would lose a couple of positions as he slipped back to finish in the fifth and final transfer spot into the 35-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 18th starting position.

When the feature event came to life following some track prep, Forsberg was able to slowly make a few moves as he worked his way towards to the Top-10. Following a stoppage just prior to the race’s halfway point, the track began to change drastically.

As the surface went slick, it soon began to take rubber. As the rubber started to go down on the speedway, Forsberg would find himself stuck in the 13th position as passing began to stop.

Able to keep his tires underneath him, Forsberg would cap the 61st running of the Key off with a 13th place finish.

“We got off to a good start, but then it took rubber and that was all she wrote,” Forsberg said. “The shape of this place is pretty crazy now, so once the rubber went down we got off the top, and things calmed down a bit. The way it is now, it reminded me of Tulare running the top, but with no wall, a mistake puts you out in no man’s land.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing is TBD on their next race at the time of press.  

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-27, Wins-3, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-18.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Forsberg Wins Second Career Wolf Memorial

Chico, CA (Aug 20, 2021) …. One of the all-time greatest sprint car drivers wins one of the all-time best features at Silver Dollar Speedway. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, now 45-years-old, claimed his 55th career main event win at Silver Dollar Speedway and his second career Tyler Wolf Memorial triumph. The 25-lap main event was fast and furious and not for the faint of heart. Sprint cars had never looked so good as they did on the famed quarter-mile clay oval speedway Friday night. It had been over six weeks since the last time the speedway hosted a traditional circle track event.

Four divisions featuring over 70 cars lined the pit area to pay tribute to Tyler Wolf. The winged sprint cars had the most entries with 36. Forsberg started seventh in the 25-lap main event and once he found his groove he quickly moved to the front. On the charge was 14th place starter Kyle Hirst. A former two-time winner of the Wolf, Hirst was aiming to get his third chance to hoist the trophy in victory lane. Andy Gregg was sensational tonight. He started fourth, but by lap two he was the leader. Gregg would go on to lead the next 10 laps until Forsberg got by him. Gregg then tried to fend off Hirst. Those two swapped the second spot lap after lap. On lap 22 Hirst was able to finally secure the second spot. A yellow on lap 23 allowed Hirst to close in on Forsberg and restart right behind him. However, Forsberg accelerated to a comfortable lead and won the race with ease. Hirst was second. Eleventh place starting Chase Majdic rocketed into the third spot after passing Gregg on the final circuit. Gregg finished fourth. Kalib Henry was solid all night. He raced inside the top five all race long. It was good to see the Menne Motorsports back in action with Henry driving. Henry finished in the fifth spot.

Lap money was on the line for the top three of each lap during the sprint car main event. Gregg was awarded the most with $910, Forsberg $760, Hirst $260, Henry $250, Michael Faccinto $180, Brent Bjork $80, and Majdic $60. Other money winners included $600 for Billy Wallace who finished 19th in the main and Casey Schmitz who qualified 19th and earned $600. Forsberg earned a $3,000 payday for the win with $1500 from the track, $500 from Care Free Pools and $1,000 from Mittry Construction. Forsberg also won $300 for quick time from ManCamp Motorsports and Paul Olmsted Plastering.

Jacob Johnson was electrifying on the track tonight. He dominated the 20-lap Hobby Stock main event to earn his first career win at Silver Dollar Speedway. He also won an extra $100 from Paul Olmsted Plastering. Johnson also won the Pepsi Night trophy that he gets to keep until next years event. Maurice Merrill did all he could and finished in the second spot. Zach Lindgren started sixth but by lap two he was in the third spot. Lindgren raced hard and finished third. BJ Martin returned to the speedway and finished fourth. Colin Ferguson rounded out the top five.

Phillip Shelby led all 20-laps to win the IMCA Sport Mod feature. In the closing laps Tyler Rodgers, who started sixth, closed in on Shelby. Rodgers dug deep and really ran his car hard the final five laps in hopes of catching Shelby. As the checkered flag waived, Rodgers got to within .309 seconds of beating Shelby. Third went to former champion Matt Micheli. Brian Cooper ran in the fourth spot. Buddy Olschowka rounded out the top five.

Richard Brace Jr. was so fast in the Street Stock division that the only real question was, could he lap the entire field in 20-laps. Two of his closest competitors each had mechanical issues. Jeff Olschowka broke on lap two and Brent Lawrence had a tire go down on lap five. Brace Jr. did lap all the way up to second spot. Richard Vander Ploeg was over 13 seconds behind Brace Jr. but finished second. Third went to Bill Hall. Gary Newman and Lyle Hopper rounded out the top five. Brace Jr. has now won the Pepsi Night Trophy two years in a row. If he wins it next year, he gets to keep it for good and make the track buy a new one.

Forsberg Forges Way to First Placerville Speedway Win of Season During Legends Night

 

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a hard charge at Placerville Speedway during the Mark Forni Classic, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing had an even better run on Saturday night as the Auburn, CA driver gave the team their first win of the season at Placerville Speedway as they took another step closer to claiming another track championship.

“We timed him seventh on Saturday night, and I was throwing a bit of a fit, but I wasn’t paying attention and didn’t realize it was a great spot to be with a three-heat format,” Forsberg said. “We had a really good run in our heat race to grab the win, and in the feature, I was able to get out front and survive a wild last couple of laps.”

With 21 cars on hand for Legends Night, Forsberg would get his night kicked off by timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials.

With a three-heat format in use, that would put Forsberg on the front row of his heat race where a win would solidify him a spot in the top-eight redraw. From the outside front row starting position, Forsberg would hammer the throttle and jump out to the early lead.

Out front, the Auburn, CA driver would not be denied as he raced to the win and made his way into the draw where Jimmy Wall’s three-pill placed him in the second row of the 25-lap feature event.

When the feature came to life, Forsberg settled into second as he flanked the early leader, Joel Myers, Jr on what was a very slick surface with a large cushion built up at both ends of the speedway.

Making his move on the third circuit, Forsberg would power into the lead until the caution flag was needed on the race’s fifth lap. Back underway, Forsberg continued to set a torrid pace as traffic came into play.

His trip into traffic would be short lived as the yellow was needed again on the 10th lap, and then the red would be needed just four laps later.

The final 11-laps of the night would rip off caution free, but it would set up a tense finish. While building up a sizeable lead, Forsberg would encounter traffic on the 23rd lap. Trapped behind a trio of lapped cars racing for position, Forsberg’s pace slowed drastically.

Doing all he could, Forsberg would have a big enough advantage built up to beat the field back to the checkered flag and cap his first win of the season at Placerville Speedway.

“Those last couple of laps were a little tense in traffic,” Forsberg said. “I had no idea how big of an advantaged I had, and it was stuck. Luckily, we had a pretty good lead and I was able to get us the win. Thanks to my guys for sticking with it and working so hard all year long. Looking forward to getting to Watsonville this weekend.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing heads to Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA on Saturday night for the Johnny Key Classic.  

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-26, Wins-3, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-18.

Forsberg Finishes Third at Famed Forni Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Moving in on his eighth driving championship at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg and the F&F Racing team took another step toward the season long goal as Forsberg extended his point lead on Saturday night with a nice charge from 11th to third during the famed Mark Forni Classic at Placerville Speedway.

“All in all, it was definitely as good of a night as we have had at Placerville to date this year,” Andy Forsberg said. “It was kind of a weird night with the smoke cast, and I think that played with the surface a little.”

Going out late in time trials, Forsberg was able to lay down a strong lap aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine as he timed in seventh fastest amidst the 25 drivers checked in.

Needing a heat race win to qualify for the redraw, Forsberg would give it his all as he chased after young Landon Brooks who ran just ahead of him. Unable to secure the position into the redraw, Forsberg’s second place finish would put him in the 11th starting position for the 25-lap Mark Forni Classic finale.

In the opening laps of the feature event, Forsberg had his elbows up as he sliced and diced his way through, the Top-10. Lap four and five would see Forsberg pick up a couple of positions as Ryan Robinson would have troubles before the next lap saw Justyn Cox and Justin Sanders each have un related troubles as well.

Now up in the seventh position, Forsberg would continue to attack the cushion as he showcased a very good car that let him work the ragged edge at the ¼ mile bullring.

Getting into fourth just before the race’s halfway point, Forsberg would find himself battling hard with the likes of Shane Hopkins and Brooks has they raced wheel-to-wheel.

Getting into third late, Forsberg would close in on the lead duo of Kalib Henry and DJ Netto, but time would run out on his efforts, as he capped the night off with a third-place finish.

“We had a couple of give-me’s in the feature with a couple of really good cars, but I was pleased with our performance,” Forsberg said. “Thanks to F&F, and looking forward to a cool ‘Legends Night’ coming up this weekend.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Andy Forsberg Takes Placerville Speedway Points Lead with Three Races Left

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though 2021 hasn’t quite been the year many have been accustomed to for Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing, the team was able to inch ahead of the season long point standings at Placerville Speedway in Saturday night as Forsberg’s fifth place finish gives him a single digit advantage with three races to go.

“Our night got off to a pretty good start with qualifying and our heat race, but we kind of struggled to keep that speed up in the feature event,” Forsberg said. “We keep trying things hoping to hit on something when it gets slick like it does, but we aren’t quite there yet. The guys will keep plugging away, and we will see what we can do this weekend in Merced, CA.”

With 29 cars on hand at Placerville, CA’s Placerville Speedway, Forsberg would lay down a very strong lap after going out late in the time trial session as he stopped the clocks with the second fastest lap of the night aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Forsberg would put himself in a good position as he worked into the lead. Picking up the win, Forsberg transferred directly into the feature event, but also earned a spot in the redraw where the five pill placed him in the third row for the 25-lap feature event.

Placerville Speedway staff would touch the slick surface up prior to the feature event pushing off, and it would provide two distinct grooves for the finale.

Setting into fifth when the race came to life, Forsberg would find himself battling with the likes of Justyn Cox and Andy Gregg as they raced around the ¼ mile bullring.

Searching high and low aboard the F&F Racing mount, Forsberg would continue to keep his machine well inside the Top-5 as he would work his way into fourth on an early restart.

Just as he took fourth on a restart, Forsberg would lose fourth on a restart a few laps later as he fell back to fifth where he would continue to run.

Battling with Cox and Willie Croft late in the race, Forsberg would keep his mount solidly in the Top-5 as his fifth place finish now has him up front in the track standings.

“Points are cool, but we really want to be up front and contending for wins,” Forsberg said. “We got a motor back and things ran well, so hopefully we can keep tuning and get this thing up front.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Pair of 2nd's

Tuesday July 20, 2021 10:43am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

     On Saturday July 17th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Placerville CA for a points show. Andy was 5th quick out of 21 cars. In his heat race he started 3rd and finished 3rd. For the A main he pulled a 3 pill for his starting position.  At the start of the race Andy jumped into 2nd quickly but never had anything for the leader, finishing a season high of 2nd place at Placerville. 

     On Sunday July 18th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Petaluma CA for a 360 points show. Andy is not running for points, just wanted to support the local tracks. With only 11 cars on hand they ran a dual heat ASCS format. Andy went from 2nd to 1st in heat 1 and 5th to 4th in heat 2 and this lines him up to start 5th in the A main event.  The track was good and fast all night and he was able to move into 2nd by lap 7 and began to chase down the leader who had a decent lead on the field but as he reached lapped traffic Andy was able to make up the distance between them and  get the lead but unfortunately a caution would fly and Andy would have to revert back to 2nd.  At the restart Andy was just not able to get back around the leader and would settle for his 3rd 2nd place finish in 8 days.

 
This upcoming weekend on Saturday July 24th Andy will be back in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1.

Andy Forsberg Second at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing put together a solid night on the famous red clay that the team come away with a second-place finish.

“It was a good night for us at Placerville Speedway, and this season I don’t know that I have been able to say that much up there which is a little odd,” Andy Forsberg said. “The F&F guys have been working hard, and we are trying things and getting better, but I still think we have a little more speed to find somewhere.”

Timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in fifth fastest in qualifying time trials, the Auburn, CA driver would race his way to a third-place finish in heat race competition.

Based on his qualifying efforts, Forsberg would also garner a berth in the nightly redraw where Jimmy Wall would pull the three pill and place the seven-time track champion in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

When the feature event went green on a freshly manicured racing surface, Forsberg would jump into second and chase after Andy Gregg until the caution flew on the fourth lap.

Following a red flag stoppage on the ninth lap, the next 12-laps would click off stoppage free and it would allow the leaders to get into traffic. While Forsberg was able to close in on Gregg as he negotiated with slower cars, Gregg would ultimately make the move and open his lead up until the red flag was again needed on the 21st lap.

The final restart of the night saw Forsberg try to make the bottom groove work as Gregg railed the cushion, but on this night Forsberg would settle for second.

“It was fun battling with Andy Gregg there in that feature,” Forsberg said. “When you race with him you know what you’re going to get, and I can appreciate that. It was a good night, and hopefully we can build on this and be a little better this weekend.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be idle this weekend before returning to action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Tribute to Baylands

Monday July 12, 2021 3:26pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

On Saturday July 10th Andy and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 were in Petaluma CA for the tribute to Baylands Raceway Park NARC 410 Race.     
Andy was 6th quick out of 19 cars, went from 3rd to 2nd in his heat race and from 4th to 6th in the dash giving him his starting position in the A main event.  At the start of the event Andy was shuffled back a bit as he was a little tight in turns 1 & 2 but quickly he found his groove and was headed towards the front, Andy made some old school scary high side moves and was gaining on the leader but just ran out of time and crossed the finish line in the runner up position. Andy was happy with the 2nd place finish as the previous attempt to Win a NARC race in Petaluma was cut short when he was taken out as the green flag flew, not even making it to the chalk line. Andy wanted to thank his crew for putting a car under him that was a contender for the win.

 

This upcoming weekend on Saturday July 17th Andy will be back in Placerville driving the F&F X1 and on Sunday in Petaluma driving the Forsberg Family #92 360.

Marysville's Freedom Fireworks Show

Thursday July 8, 2021 8:00pm

From the Office of Boo Brown

Quick Recap - On Friday July 2nd, Andy and the Forsberg 92 Team headed down to Marysville Raceway for their Freedom Fireworks Show. This was the first of three consecutive nights of racing for Andy. Qualifying did not go as he had hoped as he timed in 11th quick out of 31 cars. That put him on outside of the front row of his heat races and he was able to pull off the win. That put him in the redraw. Andy's official pill puller, Jimmy Wall, pulled the two pill to put Andy on the front row of the Main Event. The Start didn't go Andy's way and he fell back to third. He was able to get back into second where he would finish.

Forsberg Fights Back to Finish 8th During 4th of July Extravaganza

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though it was a very rough start for Andy Forsberg and the F&F Racing team on Sunday night at Placerville Speedway, the team fought through some major adversity and recorded an eighth-place finish in the 25-lap feature event.

“Sunday night got off to a pretty tough start with a fuel issue keeping us from qualifying,” Andy Forsberg said. “Some things went our way in the heat race, and we transferred into the ‘A’, and we got to working on a really slick surface and ended up with a Top-10.”

With 32 cars checked in for the annual extravaganza at Placerville Speedway, an issue in time trials would keep the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed machine from getting a lap in and they would officially be scored 32nd.

Lining up in the back of their heat race, a couple breaks would go Forsberg’s way as he would work his way into third and pressured for second at times. Finishing third, the Auburn, CA driver would avoid the ‘B’, as he transferred directly into the feature though would start 18th.

On the slicked off racing surface, Forsberg would jump up into 13th on the race’s initial start before slipping back to 15th just before the hallway point.

Slowly working his way back forward on the famed bullring, Forsberg would get into 14th on the 15th lap, before getting into the Top-10 on the 20th circuit.

A caution with three to go would put the field in single file formation, as Forsberg would take full advantage as he picked up two spots in the final two laps and capped the night off with an eighth-place finish.

Also, in action on Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track for Sprint Car Challenge Tour action, Forsberg would time in fourth fastest in his qualifying group before finishing third in his heat race.

Lining up 12th in the feature, Forsberg would spend much of the race running in the same position as pre-race track prep created a fast surface in the early goings of the race.

As the track began to change during the final 15-stanzas, Forsberg would try a few things that would result in him slipping back to finish 14th.

“It was a bit of a trying weekend, but we still are just missing something,” Forsberg said. “The guys are working hard, we just seem to be lacking a little, and hopefully we can get it sorted with a couple of weeks off.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be idle this weekend before returning to action on July 17th.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-21, Wins-2, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-14.

Forsberg Rallies for 10th Place Finish at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting caught up in a lap-11 incident on Saturday night, Andy Forsberg was able to charge from the back of the pack to record a 10th place finish during the 25-lap feature event at Placerville Speedway.

“We timed in pretty well for when we went out, and that set us up for the rest of the night,” Forsberg said. “In the feature we were cruising around in the Top-5, and a car stopped heading into three, so I went high to give the guy next to me some room and ended up getting high-centered and spinning out.”

With 29 cars checked in at Placerville Speedway, Forsberg would get off to a good start on this night as he timed the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in third fastest in time trials.

Finishing fourth in his heat race after lining up fourth, Forsberg’s time would lock him into the redraw where the four pill would place him in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

On the slicked off racing surface, Forsberg would go to work on the thick cushion that had built up on both ends of the speedway. Working inside the Top-Five, Forsberg would find himself running in the fifth position when the caution flag flew on the 11th lap.

With a car stalled in turns three, Forsberg would jump high to leave room for another car, but as he went high, he would get high centered on the cushion and hit would spin his machine out and force him to the back of the pack.

Taking advantage of the double file restart, Forsberg would make a big jump on the restart and find himself back in the Top-15 in matter of laps. Continuing to fight forward, Forsberg would get into 11th where it looked like he would finish.

A restart would two-to-go would give him one final chance to make up some ground, and he would do just that as he just got the 10th spot coming to the checkered flag.

“If something stupid can be done, I have figured out how to do it this year,” Forsberg said. “I have gone up over the edge of the track 100 times in my career and never had that happen, but low and behold it did on Saturday. Looking forward to a busy weekend and hoping we can put on a show on the 4th of July.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action on Saturday night in Stockton, CA and on Sunday night in Placerville, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-19, Wins-2, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-13.

The black cloud

Monday June 21, 2021 12:50pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

     On Saturday June 19th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Petaluma CA for a SCCT race. Andy was 3rd quick in his group of qualifiers, started on the pole of his heat race but was called for a jumpstart (replay's showed that was not the case) so he went back a row. At the restart he was shuffled back to fifth but knowing he had to win the race to get in the dash Andy was working the track but just could not get it done and finished 3rd. As luck would have it the quick time car had a mechanical failure and did not finish the race making Andy the next car to be eligible for the dash redraw. Andy pulled a 3 pill for his starting spot in the dash and would finish in the 2nd position for his front row starting spot in the A main event. At the start of the A Andy jumped into the early lead and at times had half a track lead on the 2nd and 3rd place cars, with no cautions it looked like Andy was on his way to another win in Petaluma but a front wing malfunction on lap 25 made the car tighten on entry of the turns and Andy quickly lost track position to the 2nd place car and with 4 laps to go he lost the lead.  With Andy now just hoping to finish the race in 2nd and with laps winding down quickly a yellow flag would come out on the white flag lap. When the race resumed Andy got hooked from behind and tried taking the back fence wall down, Andy got out of the car just fine but would finish with a DNF and a severely damaged race car.  

 
This upcoming weekend Andy and the F&F X1 will be back in action with a rebuilt car in Placerville CA for a 360 show.

Forsberg’s Night in Petaluma, CA Ends Violently

PETERSEN MEDIA- Andy Forsberg looked like he was the man to beat during Saturday night’s feature event. Leading the first 31 laps, Forsberg would battle a nose wing issue that played into him slipping back to second before an issue on the race’s lone restart saw him involved in a very hard hit.

“Unfortunately, our race lasted about three laps too long,” Andy Forsberg said. “We were really good in the feature and led the first 30 laps or so. We had a nose wing go down on us late in traffic that caused me to really get tight, and it was enough to slow us down and Kaleb Montgomery was there to reel us in and pounce.”

Timing in third fastest in his qualifying group, Forsberg would line up on the front row of his heat race. Being called for a jump on the initial start, Forsberg would be penalized and be sent to the second row aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA machine.

Slipping back to fifth when the race came to life, a restart a few laps into the race would see him work his way back up to a third-place finish. With a little luck on his side, he would sneak into the Dash where a second-place finish placed him on the front row of the 35-lap feature event.

Looking for his second SCCT win of the season, Forsberg got off to a great start as he set a very strong pace on the freshly groomed Petaluma Speedway surface. Extremely fast out front, Forsberg would reach the back of the field on just the sixth lap and he would then find himself in traffic as the race would click off 33 laps with no stoppages.

Getting through traffic to perfection, Forsberg would create a sizeable gap between himself and Montgomery and Colby Johnson who were putting on quite a battle for second amongst themselves.

In traffic, Forsberg’s nosewing would get knocked down and it would change the handling of his car. Abel to remain out front, second running Kaleb Montgomery was visibily cutting into his lead as laps clicked down.

On the 31st lap, Montgomery was able to get under Forsberg in turns three and four and take the race lead until the caution flew and paused the action on the 33rd lap.

The ensuing restart would see Forsberg look to make a run back at Montgomery but exiting turn two, Forsberg would get together with Sean Becker and it would result in a very hard hit on the back stretch wall, ending Forsberg’s night.

Though he was able to climb from the wreckage unscathed, the night would come to a disappointing end.

“I tried to make something happen on that last restart, and Becker and I ended up getting together and I tried to move the back stretch wall,” Forsberg added. “If anyone was curious, it doesn’t move. We had a really good car, and I hate it for my F&F guys because now we had quite a bit of work to do this week.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-18, Wins-2, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-12.

Dave Bradway Jr Memorial

Monday June 14, 2021 12:18pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing    

On Saturday June 12th Andy did double duty for the Dave Bradway Jr Memorial Race. Driving the F&F X1 with SCCT and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 with NARC.

     In the F&F X1 Andy set quick time in his group and 2nd quick overall with 31 cars on hand. Andy was 4th in his heat which put him in the dash where he finished 4th for his starting position in the A main event. The race was really un-eventful as Andy started 4th and finished 4th. A good night for the team.

     In the A&A Stepping Stone #92 and was 16th quick out of 31 cars, won his heat race from the pole and started 13th in the A main event.  Andy ran in the 11th position for most of the race until a late race incident forced him off the track with a DNF.

Andy wants to give the crew a big shout out as racing 1 car on any given night is tough but pulling double duty is challenging and both crews did a great job keeping Andy out on the racetrack.  Thank you to the Bradway Family for letting me be a part of such a great event. I look forward to many more and to the sponsors for supporting these 2 teams and keeping us in the hunt to race with some of the best in Cali.

This upcoming weekend Andy and the F&F X1 will be in Petaluma CA for a SCCT race.

Forsberg and F&F Racing Fourth with SCCT at Bradway Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night the lights shined bright on Placerville Speedway for the 30th Dave Bradway Jr Memorial featuring the SCCT and the KWS, and when all was said and done, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing picked up a fourth-place finish in SCCT action.

“It was actually a pretty good night for us in the 360ci,” And Forsberg said. “If I was decent that means the car was good, so kudos to my guys for really working hard over the last week.”

Earning quick time honors in his qualifying group aboard the C&M Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed machine, Forsberg would lien up fourth in his heat race.

Finishing fourth, Forsberg would advance into the High Sierra Industries Dash where his fourth-place finish there would again line him up fourth in the 35-lap feature event.

On a very slick racing for the 35-lap feature event, Forsberg would spend the duration of the race battling inside the Top-Five as he raced with the likes of Kalib Henry, Michael Faccinto, Tanner Carrick and Ryan Robinson.

In a very hotly contested feature event, Forsberg would get as high as second as he chased after Justyn Cox until the 19th lap when he slipped back to third.

Looking to keep the F&F Racing machine on the podium, a hard charging Ryan Robinson would sneak by the veteran standout coming out of four with just 10-laps left in the race to put him back in the fourth spot.

Running in fourth for the final 10 stanzas, Forsberg capped his night off with a fifth-place finish.

“We have really lacked grip in the slick all year, and Saturday night felt like it was a positive step for us with how slick it was,” Forsberg said. “Again, thanks to my guys, and looking forward to some Petaluma Gumbo on Saturday night.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Forsberg Recovers for Sixth Place Finish at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- With mechanical issues sidelining Andy Forsberg from competing in his heat race on Saturday night, the Auburn, CA driver would come back through the ‘B’ Main and still record a sixth-place finish in the 25-lap feature event.

“It was a bit of a frustrating night for the F&F Racing team,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in well, but we had some fuel system issues that kept us out of our heat race and forced us into the “B”.”

With 31 cars on hand to tune up for this weekend’s 30th Annual Dave Bradway Jr Memorial event, Forsberg would get the night started by timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed entry in fifth fastest in time trials.

Rolling out for heat race action, issues within the fuel system aboard the F&F Racing machine would force Forsberg to the work area. As they thrashed to make repairs, it looked as if Forsberg would make the call, but upon returning to the track he would pull into the infield.

Forced into the ‘B’, Forsberg would appear to be hitting on all cylinders as he turned in a very strong performance. Picking up the win, Forsberg would move into the feature event and get his qualifying time back.

Lining up just behind the re-draw cars, the Auburn, CA driver would take the green flag from the ninth starting position. On a very slick surface that with sizeable curb built up on both ends of the speedway, Forsberg would pick up a couple positions though he still could quite make a run that he had hoped to make.

When the race came to a close, Forsberg would take the checkered flag with a sixth place finish.

“We are still really searching to find grip on the slick,” Andy Forsberg said. “Our night started off well, and then it was a bit of a struggle. The Bradway is coming this week, and it is a race that means a lot to this team, so we will go to work this week and hopefully be ready to compete for a win on Saturday.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

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

Forsberg Wins his 5th Mel & Marlyn Hall Memorial Race   

Monday May 31, 2021 3:51pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Sunday May 30th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Marysville CA for the Mel & Marlyn Hall Memorial SCCT race.  Andy was 2nd quick in his group of qualifying, won his heat from the front row putting him in the redraw for a top 8 spot.  Jimmy pulled the 8 pill for Andy's starting spot in the Dash and he would move up a couple spots to finish 6th and get his starting spot in the A main event.  The track was what I call an Andy kind of race track, tacky and fast and he showed from the wave of the green he was going to be a contender as he moved into the 2nd place position by lap 8 and began a pursuit of the leader, with some red and yellow flags flown for the the remainder 27 laps Andy and Sean Becker were putting on a real good show but Andy finally would break free and again have to run the leader of Colby Copland down and with just a few laps left it was becoming quite the nail biter in lapped traffic and with the white flag being flown Andy would make a move to take the lead and this back a fourth battle would last all the way to the checkered as you could throw a blanket over the top 2 with Andy crossing the line as the victor to win his 5th Mel & Marylyn Hall Memorial race and get his 3rd victory of 2021.

    This upcoming weekend the F&F X1 will be in Placerville CA on Saturday June 5th for a track points show.

Late move nets Andy Forsberg 5th career Hall Memorial on Sunday with SCCT

Gary Thomas – SprintCarFan.com

 

Marysville, CA…Late race entertainment highlighted the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards debut at Marysville Raceway on Sunday evening. In the end it was Auburn’s Andy Forsberg who made the right moves to claim his fifth career Hall Memorial victory, taking home the $3,500 top prize.

It marked Forsberg’s second career Sprint Car Challenge Tour triumph and came aboard the familiar Friends & Family Racing/ Bushey Financial Services/ Pit Stop USA X1 mount. The veteran hounded leader Colby Copeland early on before making the exhilarating move for the lead just prior to the finish.

“To win another Mel and Marlyn Hall Memorial is pretty special and to do it in exciting fashion like that couldn’t have been better,” commented the 44-year-old former Goat Farmer. “Things got a little hairy in lapped traffic and that certainly made it a new race towards the end. My family and the Halls go way back so it’s always an honor just to run this race, let alone win it five different times. I want to thank this whole F&F X1 team and everyone that supports it.”

The initial 14-laps of the feature clicked off fast and furious and saw Copeland jump out to the lead with Forsberg hanging right there every step of the way through traffic. The middle stages of the race bogged down with a few yellows and one red flag period for Bobby Butler, who luckily emerged okay after a scary flip down the front stretch. When green flag laps finally clicked off again all eyes were turned towards camping buddies Forsberg and Sean Becker, who had a torrid battle for the runner up spot.

While Forsberg and Becker fought for second it allowed Copeland to rocket away to a sizable lead as the race wound down. Forsberg eventually came out on top of the race with Becker for P2 and then set his sights on the leader, who was stuck behind lapped traffic. With Copeland boxed in “Mr. Excitement” made his move and charged hard after the top spot. Heading into turn three coming for the white flag Forsberg sliced to the inside and made the pass as the crowd came to their feet. Copeland made another run at it and looked to have a chance in the final corners, but Forsberg hung tough and crossed the stripe for victory.

Copeland’s strong night ended in second, less than a car length from Forsberg at the finish. Despite not getting the win it was another stellar evening with SCCT for the Van Lare Steering Repair/ Bianchi Farms 5V machine. It was also Copeland’s second straight runner up effort with the tour. Becker capped an exceptional night of competition as well by crossing the line in third aboard the Monhoff Racing/ M&M Structures 35 Sprinter. It was nice to see the “Shark” back on the podium for the second time this season with SCCT.

Fremont’s Shane Golobic and Foresthill’s Ryan Robinson completed the top-five in the 35-lapper. Rounding out the top-10 were Tyler Thompson, Justyn Cox, Brad Bumgarner, Justin Sanders and Dylan Bloomfield. Windsor’s John Clark was the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award winner and went home with an extra $250 courtesy of Larry Antaya Motorsports.

The B-main went to Angelo Cornet, while the High Sierra Industries Dash was picked off by Colby Copeland, who earned an extra c-note from Roadside 24 Service. The four 10-lap heats were captured by Bobby Butler, Justyn Cox, Andy Forsberg and Sean Becker. Oregon traveler Tyler Thompson earned the $450 fast time award to start the night thanks to Bianchi Farms, in memory of Kyle Main Motorsports and Paul Olmsted Plastering.

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing Seventh at Placerville Speedway’s Sunday Funday

PETERSEN MEDIA- Coming off a tumultuous weekend that saw the F&F Racing team endure a pair of DNF’s, Andy Forsberg and company were back to work on Sunday at Placerville Speedway where the picked up a seventh place finish.

“The car felt really good all night long, and we had good speed, but I made a couple of mistakes in the seat trying to figure the cushion out,” Andy Forsberg said. “It was good to finish a race after what feels like a long dry spell, and like I said really happy with how the car felt.”

36 cars checked in for the rare Sunday night program at Placerville Speedway, and with the field split into two qualifying groups, Forsberg would time in fastest in the second group, and third overall.

Lining up fourth in heat race competition, Forsberg would hang on to finish fourth aboard the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA mount, which was all he needed to do to earn a spot in the redraw.

With a four and eight the two pills left, Forsberg would end up with the four, which placed him in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

A big curb had built up around the Speedway on this night, leaving the bottom extremely slick and putting much of the field on the cushion. Running in the top=five much of the race, Forsberg would admittedly make a couple of mistakes that cost him a couple of positions as the race moved along.

“The cushion was pretty thick, and you had to be smart about how you ran up against it and I hit it wrong a couple of times and it cost us,” Forsberg said.

Slipping back to seventh, Forsberg would close the night out with his ninth Top-10 of the season with F&F Racing.

“It was a busy weekend for me personally running three nights, and a lot of the crew from the F&F team helped out all three nights as well, so I have to thank them for working really hard,” Forsberg said. “We have kind of a long week ahead before we get back to racing on Sunday at Marysville Raceway.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be in action with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Marysville Raceway with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Sunday night.

Forsberg 4th at Mother’s Day Madness

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night after two weeks away for Sprint Car Challenge Tour events, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing tallied a fourth-place finish in a night dubbed as Mother’s Day Madness.

“After the last points race at Placerville Speedway we knew we had some work to do,” Forsberg said. “We changed some things that seemed to help at Petaluma and up in Chico last week, and we were able to time in well and make the redraw on Saturday, so things are definitely trending in the right direction for the F&F team.”

Saturday night saw 29 cars check into the pit area for the night of racing and Forsberg would time the C&H Motor parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed entry in sixth quickest in qualifications.

On a very slick surface in heat race competition, Forsberg would start and finish in the third position. Moving into the feature, luck would be on his side as he also qualified for the redraw.

After a string of tough draws, Jimmy Wall returned to form for the team as he would pull the three pill and put the Auburn, CA driver in the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

Following a track re work, Forsberg would jump into second when the action went green. As laps clicked off the track would get back to its slick form as the leaders reached the back of the field.

In traffic, Forsberg would try and track down Golobic, but on this night Golobic was able to keep several lapped cars between in himself and the Auburn, CA pilot.

Getting passed by Willie Croft just after the race’s halfway point, Forsberg would now find himself in third as he continued to take part in what ended up being a 19-lap green flag run.

Following a lap 19 stoppage, Forsberg would continue to run in third until the yellow was again needed on the 21st lap.

The lap 21 restart would see Forsberg slip back to fourth via a surging Justin Sanders, and that is where he would go on to finish on this night.

“We are still lacking a little speed, but like I said it was good to have the speed to time in well and put ourselves in a starting position up front again at Placerville,” Andy Forsberg noted. “We have a busy week ahead, and I am hoping we can continue to find more and more speed and put together two strong runs.”

Silver Dollar Double Header

Monday May 4, 2021 10:24am

From the Office of Forsberg Racing


     On Friday April 30th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 raced in Chico, CA for the Bill Brownell Memorial Race. With 61 cars on hand the track used a group heat format for qualifying Andy qualified 3rd in the 6th group.  In his heat race the family car struggled and Andy went from 2nd to 3rd but this was good enough to put him directly into the A main event with a starting spot of 11th. Andy made some good moves and was up to 4th place towards the end of the race but pushed a little too hard at the end of the race and got hung up in the cushion to drop him back to a 7th place finish. 

     On Saturday May 1st Andy and the F&F X1 were again in Chico, CA for the David Tarter Memorial SCCT race. Again there were 61 cars on hand and as luck would have it Andy was the 61st car to qualify. Andy was 5th quick in the 6th group, finished 5th in his heat race which put him in the B main.  Things were looking kind of bleak in the 1st half of the B as Andy moved up slowly through the field but eventually got his groove on and finished 3rd to transfer into the A main event where he would start 21st. Andy was in for a chaotic dog fight for the entire 35 laps as he moved up through the field and with 1 lap to go, going for the 6th position Andy was spun from behind like the final lap in a NASCAR race but fortunately he was able to keep the car going, doing a full 360 and salvaging an 11th place finish. 

    This upcoming weekend Friday May 7th the Forsberg Family #92 will once again be in Chico, CA and on Saturday May 8th Andy and the F&F X1 will be back in Placerville CA.

Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing 11th at David Tarter Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour’s debut at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA on Saturday night, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would overcome an early hole to finish 11th in the feature event amongst a loaded pit area.

“Our night started out with me not quite telling the guys my plan for time trials, and it kind of bit us as they had me set up to do something else and it didn’t work,” Forsberg said. “We ended up going through the ‘B’ and running through the field pretty well in the ‘A’ before a melee coming to the checkered saw me spin across the finish line in 11th.”

Going out last to qualify in both his group and overall, amongst the 61 cars checked into the pit area, Forsberg would end up timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed entry in fifth quickest in his group.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would finish fifth and find himself in the ‘B’ Main. Lining up ninth in the ‘B’, Forsberg would have his elbows up as he sliced and diced his way through the field. Working into a transfer position, Forsberg continued to work his way forward as he would end up third and put himself safely in the 35-lap feature event.

Based on his finish in the ‘B’, Forsberg would roll off the starting grid from the 21st starting position on the slick Silver Dollar Speedway surface.

Just as he did in the ‘B’, Forsberg was able to race his way forward. Patiently racing through the field, Forsberg would pick up spots under green flag action, and would also use a few restarts to gain ground.

Racing into the Top-10 at the race’s halfway point, Forsberg would continue his charge forward.

Getting up to seventh with 10-to-go, Forsberg would find himself in a very torrid battle for position.

A late restart with two-to-go would bunch the field back up, and as he continued to fight for position inside the Top-10 coming to the checkered flag some contact would ensue resulting in the No.x1 machine spinning to the finish as he crossed the stripe in the 11th spot.

“Thanks to the F&F guys for continuing to work hard after our miscommunication to start the night out,” Forsberg said. “I’m not sure if I was too slow on the bottom coming to the checkered and someone got into the back of me, or if someone wanted the spot, but luckily nothing to major happened and we move on to race Placerville on Saturday. 

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will get back to racing action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-10, Wins-1, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-7.

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

     On Saturday April 24th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Petaluma CA for round #2 of the SCCT Series. Andy was 4 quick in his qualifying group, 3rd in his heat race and started 14 in the A main event.  At the wave of the green you could tell the combination of the car, the driver and the track were going to be a force to reckon with. Immediately Andy was making moves towards the front on a track rough and hooked up, Andy methodically moved his way forward to get 2nd place and earning the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger award and a big morale boost for the team as they have been fighting a minor engine performance issue from the start of the season. Saturday the car was great and it looks like the minor bugs may be squashed.

     This upcoming weekend it's a double header in Chico CA. On Friday April 30th Andy will be in the Forsberg Family #92 for the Bill Brownell Memorial Race and on Saturday May 1st in the F&F X1 for round #3 of the SCCT series tribute to David Tarter race.

Forsberg Romps to Second Place Finish in Hard Charger Effort at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- 2021 has been quite an uphill battle thus far for Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing. Continuing to search for issues that hindered their start to the season, their hard work paid off as things came together on Saturday night and Forsberg was able to charge from 14th to finish second with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“I really have to thank the F&F Racing guys for all of their hard work and determination during the first two months of the season,” Andy Forsberg said. “We had been chasing something with our engine program, and this week they changed some stuff around and I think we are finally back where we need to be.”

Checking in at Petaluma Speedway with the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour pres. By Abreu Vineyards, Forsberg would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed sprinter in fourth fastest in his qualifying group.

Finishing third in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would move into the 35-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 14th starting position. On a very hooked up Petaluma Speedway, Forsberg would flex his muscles on the famed ‘Gumbo’ as he began to work his way forward at the drop of the green flag.

Cracking the Top-10 by the seventh lap, Forsberg would use a double file restart on lap nine to jump up into seventh.

Continuing to forge his way through the field, Forsberg would make a move on another restart and find himself in fifth, and looking for more. Taking over the third position at the race’s halfway point, Forsberg would find himself battling the likes of Ryan Bernal and Justyn Cox as they all chased after Shane Golobic who had built up a sizeable lead.

Taking over the second position amidst traffic on the 27th lap, Forsberg would hold the spot as he would earn PitStopUSA Hard Charger Honors.

“Going from 14th to 2nd at Petaluma is pretty good when it is heavy and sticky like that,” Forsberg said. “I didn’t do us any favors in time trials, but these guys continued to work hard, and we are all pretty happy with how the night ended up playing out.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Last Lap Miscue Hinders Forsberg’s Charge at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg would rebound from a tough qualifying effort only to see a last lap miscue derail his hard charge efforts.

“The wind didn’t really do Placerville Speedway any favors on Saturday and it made for a tricky surface that we all had to deal with,” Andy Forsberg said. “Mix that with us still searching for speed with our engine, and me making a late mistake in the feature and it results in a bit of a tough night.”

With 29 cars checked into Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, the Auburn, CA driver would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 sprinter in 19th fastest in time trials after going out late on a very slick surface.

Lining up in the third row of his heat race, Forsberg was able to make some headway and race into a transfer position. Finishing fourth in his heat race, Forsberg would avoid a trip to the ‘B’ as he locked himself into the 25-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 15th starting position, Forsberg would have a lot of work to do from the back of the pack on a freshly groomed racing surface.

Slipping back to 18th when the race came to life, Forsberg would slowly work his way up towards the Top-10. With the first nine-laps ripping off with no stoppages, Forsberg had made his way back to 15th when the field bunched up for a double-file restart.

Continuing to run in 15th, Forsberg would get moving at the race’s halfway point. Climbing up to 13th, the Auburn, CA driver continue to look for more as he finally cracked the Top-10 on lap 14.

Moving into ninth with just nine laps to go, Forsberg would forge his way into eighth as the laps clicked down.

Taking the white flag in eighth, Forsberg’s charge would end up all for not as he would hang his right-rear off the edge of the speedway in turns one and two, and was officially credited with a 15th place finish.

“Even with the rework, it was really thing up top in turns one and two and I made a really bad mistake and it cost us a Top-10,” Forsberg said. “We are still fighting some things on our car, and this week we have something else that we want to try and hopefully it sort of alleviates our struggles. Looking forward to getting back down to Petaluma Speedway with the SCCT on Sataurday.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

 

     On Saturday April 10th Andy and the F&F X1 were in Placerville CA for the Al Hinds tribute race. Andy was 2nd quick out of 33 cars, finished 4th in his heat race and pulled the 7 pill for his starting position in the A main event.  At the start of the A main Andy and the other front cars put on a show on a dicey hooked up race track battling back and forth for a long 21 green laps of exiting racing. With just 4 laps left to go Andy and the F&F X1 crossed the line in 4th and it was nice to see the car back in action racing for a podium finish. 
     On Sunday April 11th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Petaluma Ca for the tracks season opener.  Andy was 4th quick out of 18 cars, finished 4th in his heat race and pulled a 6 pill for his starting position in the A main event.  At the start of the A main  the front row cars battled a little to hard for the front position and ended both their nights before reaching turn 3 this moved Andy to the 4th starting position. When the green flag flew for a 2nd time Andy immediately pounced and saw himself in 2nd.  He and Robinson put on a show for 25 laps and on the white flag lap Andy made his move in lapped traffic to steal the win and get his 2nd win of 2021.

Andy Forsberg Fourth at Placerville Speedway with F&F Racing

PETERSEN MEDIA- While the start to their 2021 season has not been quite as strong as they have hoped, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing turned in a nice night at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night that was culminated with a fourth-place finish in the feature.

“It has been kind of a sluggish start for our team in 2021,” Forsberg said. “We have been fighting things with our engine and really haven’t gotten it to where we want it to be yet. Saturday night was definitely a better for us night with a decent finish, and these F&F Racing guys are continuing to work hard and get us where we want to be.”

With 33 cars checked in for the 18th Annual Tribute to Al Hinds event, Forsberg would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would finish in the fourth position putting him directly into the feature event. Based on his qualifying efforts, Forsberg was also eligible for the redraw where the seven would place him in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.

On a very slick racing surface that had a curb built up at both ends of the speedway, Forsberg would make a couple of nice moves to get into the Top-5 on the fourth lap, before slipping up into fourth on lap six.

The first 20-laps would go caution free after a red was needed on the initial start. Forsberg would race hard with the Carrick brothers as they all jockeyed for position before the yellow flag was needed on the 20th lap.

Sitting in fourth, action for second through fourth would pick up during the five-lap dash to the finish, and when the checkered flag flew, Forsberg closed the night out with a fourth-place finish.

“It was a good step in the right direction for us, but we still have something going on that is kind of hindering us,” Forsberg said. “Again, these guys have worked hard during this frustrating first month of the season, and I know they will continue to work hard.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Forsberg 13th at SCCT Opener After Late Race Tangle

PETERSEN MEDIA- Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing had a solid night going with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway. Unfortunately, with just seven laps to in the feature event, Forsberg would endure some contact after jumping the cushion, and would end up finishing 13th after going to the back of the pack.

“The night got off to an okay start for us,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in third fastest in our qualifying group, and we won our heat race, but I still felt like we were chasing speed. In the feature we were up to fourth, but I smoked it into three and four and got over the cushion and endured some contact as I tried to get straightened back out.”

With 37 cars on hand for the opening round of the 2021 Sprint Car Challenge Tour campaign, Forsberg would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in second fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Forsberg was able to get the jump on the lightning-fast surface and race to the win, punching his ticket into the Dash by doing so.

Finishing fourth in the Dash, the Auburn, CA driver would line up in the second row for the 35-lap SCCT feature event. Hanging inside the Top-Five in the early stages of the race, Forsberg would actually slip back to seventh just before the races’ halfway point as the track changed a lot during the duration of the 35-lapper.

In the midst of pure chaos at times, Forsberg would capitalize on restarts as he was able to work his way back into the Top-5, and up to fourth by the time a caution flew on the 28th lap.

The ensuing restart would see Forsberg take a run at the leaders, and in doing so he went use the high side in turns three and four. Getting his right-rear- up over the cushion, Forsberg would endure contact as he got his machine straightened out and it would result in damage to the rear end, including a flat left rear.

Able to change the tire, Forsberg would restart in the 14th starting position, and would pick up a spot as he limped home to a 13th place finish.

“We have some kinks to work out, but it is still very early in the season,” Forsberg said. “These guys have already been working very hard, and hopefully this weekend we will be a little closer to where we want to be.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Marysville Raceway Park 

Points Race #2

Monday March 15, 2021 3:40pm

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday March 20th the plan was for Andy and the F&F X1 to race in Placerville, CA but unfortunately a wet facility forced the cancellation of points race #1. Plan B was put into effect and the team headed to Marysville, CA. The track was unkind for qualifying and Andy would end up 9th quick. Andy started 2nd in his heat race and finished 1st putting himself into the redraw. Jimmy pulled his first 8 pill on the year, let's hope this is not a recurring event. The track had worked itself in and Andy was able to make some moves and get up to 2nd, he applied pressure to the leader but just was not able to complete a pass settling for another podium finish this week in 2nd place.

 

    This next weekend on Saturday March 27th Andy and the F&F X1 will be in Placerville CA for round #1 of the SCCT series.

Andy Forsberg 2nd at Marysville Raceway

 

PETERSEN MEDIA - Scheduled to open Placerville Speedway’s season up on Saturday night, saturated grounds led to the race being cancelled and forced Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing to head to Marysville Raceway where they would pick up a second place finish.

“Saturday night we were pretty good all night,” Andy Forsberg said. “The track went away super quick so we didn’t get timed in the best, and then Jimmy Wall pulled the eighth for us and made things that much more challenging.”

A total of 21 sprint cars checked in at Marysville Raceway for the tracks’ second points paying event of the 2021 season. On an extremely slick surface, Forsberg would time the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in ninth fastest in time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver was hard on the throttle as he jumped out to the early lead. Needing to pick up the win to earn a place in the draw, Forsberg would do just that before the eight-pill placed him in the fourth row to start the feature.

When the race came to life, Forsberg would bide his time as he worked his way to the front of the field. Cracking the Top-5 on the fourth lap, Forsberg would take over the fourth position a lap later as the field continued to fight for the moisture on the low groove.

On the race’s seventh circuit ‘Mr. Excitement’ overtook the final spot on the podium and then was able to take the second position as the cross flags were displayed to the field.

Once in second, Forsberg would apply heavy pressure on race leader, Kaleb Montgomery, but Montgomery would not budge on this night. Able to get next to the leader on a few occasions, Forsberg simply could not get in front of him and took the checkered flag with a second place finish.

“We started eight, and did a really good job of working our way forward and getting into second,” Forsberg said. “Kaleb Montgomery ran a really strong race and we didn’t have anything to get by him. Congrats to those guys on their win, and we will look forward to Saturday’s SCCT opener at Placerville Speedway.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Andy Forsberg Scores First Win of 2021 with F&F Racing

PETERSEN MEDIA- Making some changes to their engine program following the Silver Cup, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing checked in at Marysville Raceway for the track’s regular season opener and came away with their first win of the season.

“We really had hoped to get down to Hanford over the weekend, but the F&F guys wanted to tweak some stuff on our engine package, and we were unable to make the trip, so we stuck close to home,” Forsberg said. “Things seemed to go pretty well for us, and hopefully the weather holds, and we can open the season up at Placerville this weekend.”

With 18 cars checked in on a chilly night in Marysville, CA, Forsberg got the night opened up by timing the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed machine in second fastest in qualifications.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, ‘Mr. Excitement’ was able to make some swift moves and take the race lead. Picking up the win, Forsberg would move into the redraw where the four pill would place him in the second row of the feature event.

When the feature event went green, Forsberg was able to jump into the third position before moving into second on the fourth lap.

Chasing after leader, Jake Haulot, Forsberg would have to be patient as Haulot was very strong on this night. Battling with third running Sean Becker at times, Forsberg would finally capitalize in traffic on the 17th lap to take the lead, and subsequently bring Becker along with him.

With Forsberg out front, his veteran counterpart Becker would continue to apply pressure as the duo waged war on each other for the final nine laps.

Exchanging the top spot on a few occasions, the 2020 Marysville Raceway Champion would not be denied on this night, as he was able to fend Becker off and pick up his first win of the season.

“The track was tricky, and Jake Haulot was really good early,” Forsberg said. “We finally got out front late and had our hands full with ‘The Shark’, but we were able to fend him off and grab the win.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

Forsberg and F&F Racing Third at Silver Cup Opener

 

PETERSEN MEDIA- The 32nd Annual Silver Cup in Chico, CA marked the opening weekend of racing action for Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing. Heading to Silver Dollar Speedway, Forsberg would finish third during Friday night’s opener before a sixth-place result in the Silver Cup finale on Saturday.

“You kind of know what you are going to get during an early March race in Chico, CA,” Forsberg said. “Luckily we were able to put ourselves in a good spot all night, and Jimmy Wall came through with a great pill draw for the feature.”

On a very sticky and fast Silver Dollar Speedway racing surface, Forsberg timed the C&H Motor Parts/Bushey Financial Services/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in ninth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Running second in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would earn a spot in the redraw where the four-pill placed him in the second row to start the 25-lap Friday night feature event. 

With the surface staying extremely fast on this night, Forsberg would hold down the fourth spot as he chased after the likes of Joel Myers, Jr, Max Mittry, and Justin Sanders.

Able to work his way into third, Forsberg would spend the last few laps working on Mittry for the second position. Getting a couple of good runs, Forsberg just couldn’t get by the second-place driver, and he finished the night off with a third-place result. 

Back in action on Saturday night, Forsberg’s night would get off to as nice of a start as it did on Friday as he timed the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Lucas Oil backed mount in 13th fastest in time trials.

Starting and finishing fourth in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver would line up in the 15th starting position for the Silver Cup feature event. Amidst a lightning fast opening green flag run, Forsberg would work his way forward and find himself in the sixth position when the caution flew on the 19th lap.

The final 11 laps saw Forsberg in a heated battle with the likes of Tanner Carrick and Joel Myers, Jr. for position in the Top-Five. A late move my Carrick would push Forsberg out of the Top-Five as he ended the weekend with a sixth-place finish.

“Saturday was kind of an okay night for us,” Forsberg noted. “We definitely are not on the Justin Sanders level yet, he was really good all weekend. We got it together in the feature, and late in the race I could have forced some issues and got back on the podium, or I could play it safe and end up sixth. I played it safe and we ended up sixth. Thanks to the F&F guys for their hard work.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank C&H Motor Parts, Bushey Financial Services, PitStopUSA, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes,  Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, CRV Carbon Solutions, All Pro Heads, and Engler for their support in 2021.

ON TAP: F&F Racing is slated to return to action at Marysville Raceway on Saturday. 

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-2, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-2.

From the Office of Forsberg Racing

     On Saturday February 27th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 360 headed to Marysville Raceway Park for the season opener of 2021. Andy was 3rd quick out of 24 cars, went from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and started 3rd in the A main event lineup.  Andy's main event action was short lived as he was caught up in a lap 1 incident with front-end damage Andy was unable to return to the track and would finish with a DNF. 

     This upcoming weekend Andy will be driving the F&F X1 Friday March 5th and Saturday March 6th in Chico CA. 

     The Forsberg Family #92 360 car has a different look for 2021 as we did a throwback tribute to Richard Forsberg's 1984 racecar.
