PETERSEN MEDIA- Spending his week racing all over the Western States, Andy Forsberg closed his week out with F&F Racing on Friday night at the Placerville Speedway, where he finished fourth, and on Saturday night at the Petaluma Speedway where brake issues caused a DNF.
“After all of this racing, I’m ready to go back to work,” Forsberg said. “We just had issues, and it wasn’t anyone’s fault, it was just bad luck, but it’s part of it. We were pretty good on Friday night at Placerville, and then brake issues I had in Oregon, followed me to the X1 car at Petaluma.”
Kicking off the final two nights of his Speedweek, Forsberg timed the Lucas Oil/Pit Stop USA/CRV backed No. x1 machine in second fastest at the Placerville Speedway on Friday night.
The early start time saw the track slick off very early in the evening, and after finishing second in his heat race, the Auburn, CA driver pulled the three pill, putting him in the second row of the feature event.
Admittedly not a fan of the slick surfaces, Forsberg worked the cushion as he battled with Greg DeCaires and Jake Morgan much of the race.
Riding the cushion, Forsberg would look to get into the third spot as the race wound down in thick traffic, but on this night, he would bring home a fourth place finish aboard the HRP/Inventory Sales/A.R.T. machine.
Heading to the Petaluma Speedway for a night of action with the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster, Forsberg’s early draw for time trials saw him time in 14th fastest, putting him on the front row of his heat race.
Losing the drag race to Jamie Duff into turn one of his heat, ‘Mr. Excitement’ would finish in the second spot, transferring him into the feature event.
Lining his Wilwood/Kaizer Wheels/K&N backed entry up in seventh row, Forsberg was quick to jump into the Top-10 where he ran when the caution flew on the 16th lap.
When the red flew on the 20th lap, Forsberg sat in the eighth spot, and when cars fired and began lining back up, Forsberg noticed something went south with his brakes, and pulled off the speedway, ending his night 10-laps from the finish.
“I had brake issues all week long in Oregon with the team I was driving for up there, and evidently they followed me home,” Forsberg said. “It has been a long week, and I can’t thank everyone who helped out. I am looking forward to Watsonville next week, and hopefully we can get this thing back in victory lane.”
F&F Racing would like to thank Lucas Oil, Pit Stop USA, HRP, CRV, Inventory Sales, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Wilwood, Kaizer Wheels, K&N, Roseville Precision, Autism Speaks, FK Rod Ends, and PT Shocks for their support in 2014.
ON TAP: The F&F Racing team will be back in action on Friday night as the Civil War Series returns to the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA before another round of action on Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway.
