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.
