On Friday June 14th Andy was in Chico CA driving the PT Shocks 7c at a 360 open show. Andy was 4th quick 3rd in his heat race and would start 4th in the A main event. The track was just like Andy likes rough & ragged and for the first few laps Andy struggled to make smooth laps running the preferred bottom line. After falling back to the 5th position Andy decided to try the high scary side and it worked like a charm. In 4 laps Andy went from 5th to 1st, leading the last 16 laps for his 4th win of the year. The 3rd win on only 7 starts driving the 7c.
On Saturday June 15th Andy and the F&F X1 headed to Hanford CA for a CA Civil War show. Andy was fast time out of 44 cars, finished 2nd in his heat race and would start 10th in the A main event, Andy had in the past had pretty good luck in Hanford on a track that was rough and fast which earlier in the night it was, but the constant wind and 105 total cars in the pits the track went from fun and tacky to dry slick dusty for the main event. Andy pretty much maintained throughout the race coming home with an 11th place finish. With the Civil War points leader Justin Sanders having engine problems and 2nd place Sean Becker's so so night Andy leapfrogged both drivers and is now leading Civil War points.
This up coming weekend Andy will be driving the F&F X1 in Chico CA on Friday June 21st for another Civil War show and on Saturday June 22nd again Andy will be in the F&F X1 in Placerville CA for a 360 points race
Mr. Excitement Forsberg Wheels to Victory
On an eventful night at the Silver Dollar Speedway, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg lived
up to his moniker as Mr. Excitement and claimed the top spot in the Non-Points
Open 360 Sprint
Car Main Event. “Thank you to Cody and PT Shocks for all their hard work,”
stated Forsberg as he climbed out of the Cody Gainey owned PT Shocks#7c car.
“I loved the track tonight, it reminded me of the Silver Dollar of old,” said
referring to the hooked up and fast track conditions tonight, that saw lap times
in the high twelve second bracket during the Main Event.
Second Place Finisher Sean Becker didn’t seem to like the conditions quite as
much, “The track was pretty rough. Andy blew the top off and created his own
line and I could keep up, but I just couldn’t get around him,” stated Becker in
the pits post-race. Other winners during Wells Fargo Points Race #8 included
Misty Castleberry in the Mini Stocks, Jesse Skidmore in the Hobby Stocks, Scott
Kinney in the BCRA Midget Lites, Jake Vantol in the Street Stocks, and Richard
Papenhausen in the Dirt Modifieds.

Believe it or not, Andy was able to drive out of this and the wing never hit the ground. He headed to the pit work area where the crew changed out the left rear tire that was damaged in the incident. He came back out and finish fifth in this heat race. Awesome shot by Steve, check out the rest of his work on his website stevesracingphotos.com
