PETERSEN MEDIA- Battling for the lead at the halfway point in Saturday night’s Adobe Cup feature event at Petaluma Speedway, contact with a car in traffic would prove detrimental to Andy Forsberg as his night would eventually come to a close on the 19th lap.
“That didn’t quite go as we had planned,” Andy Forsberg said. “We were locked into the feature event, and got to racing with the leader and made contact with a car we were trying to lap. Lucky to not go flipping, but a disappointing way to end our night.”
By way of a win at the Petaluma Speedway back in July, Forsberg would find himself locked into the Adobe Cup Dash where a fourth place finished placed the PitStopUSA/Autism Awareness/PT Shocks No. 7c in the second row for the 30-lap, $5000-to-win feature event.
Getting into the third spot when the green flag waived, Forsberg would take advantage of the restart on lap one, as he would take over the second spot only to see the yellow again fly just four laps later.
Continuing to run in the second spot, the race would finally get going on lap seven. Chasing after race leader, Chase Johnson, Forsberg would move in on him as traffic finally became a factor.
Applying heavy pressure in lapped traffic, Forsberg saw an opportunity heading into turn three on lap 15, and as he looked to move around Johnson he would make contact with a slower car and do all but get his machine upside down.
Still able to hang in the second spot, Forsberg’s entry had severe damage to the front end, but the Auburn, CA driver was still able to hang on to the second spot. Doing all he could with a battered machine, Forsberg would finally call it a night on the 19th lap when his machine became too ill handling.
“I hate it for this team, and our partners,” Forsberg said. “We had an awesome car, and it was going to be good at the end I think, but it wasn’t meant to be. I have to thank everyone who works on this thing for giving me a good car, and hopefully we can redeem ourselves this weekend.”
The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank PitStopUSA, Autism Awareness, Pacific Highway Rentals, PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, and Velocity Race Gear and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.
ON TAP: The C&M Motorsports team is scheduled to be at the Placerville Speedway on Friday and Saturday night for the inaugural NorCal Posse Shootout pres. by Autism Awareness.
