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.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-16, Wins-4, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-10.
