PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action with the California Civil War Sprint Car Series Presented By Flowmaster for the 54th Annual Johnny Key Classic, Andy Forsberg had an unfortunate quick night, as a sixth place finish in his qualifier did not advance him into the feature event.
“It was a quick night with a tough field of cars,” Forsberg said. “It was a unique format for this event, and we just did not get the job done.”
With 48 cars checked into the pits, 5 of those cars had already locked themselves into the feature event by way of qualifers earlier in the year, leaving 43 drivers going after 17 positions.
Going out late in time trials, Forsberg got all he could out of the slicked off surface as he timed his Lucas Oil/Pit Stop USA/HRP backed No. x1 machine in 20th fastest.
With qualifiers being lined up straight up off of time with the top-four moving into the feature, Forsberg’s time trial effort put him in the third row of the fourth qualifier.
Battling with Jamie Duff for the fourth and final transfer position, Forsberg continued to search the speedway to get a run for the spot, but could not make it happen.
In his efforts to move forward, he would wind up losing a spot, finishing sixth in his qualifier, bringing his night to an end.
“It was just a struggle in our qualifier, and that was our only shot to get into the show,” he added. “We got what we could time trial wise going out late, but our time put us towards the back, and we couldn’t get moving forward.”
