Kicking off the season at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Andy Forsberg did it in style, as he parked his F&F Racing machine in victory lane in front of the capacity crowd.
“Last year we got off to a slow start up here, and turned it on towards the end of the year, so to win opening night is pretty huge, and our whole team is excited,” Forsberg said.
Lining up sixth in the feature event, Forsberg was strategic in his march to the front as he slowly worked his way to the front, getting past Steven Tiner, Andy Gregg, and Willie Croft, as he set his sights on race-long leader, Matt Peterson.
Using the always thick Placerville Speedway cushion, Forsberg used his momentum off of turn four to propel his Lucas Oil/Pit Stop USA/RPI entry around Peterson on the 16th lap.
In the midst of heavy lapped traffic, and a right rear tire that was losing air, Forsberg had his hands full for the final few laps, but in the end, the reigning track champ, was able to pull into victory lane.
“Looking at this huge crowd, it’s nice to see people didn’t forget how exciting this place is on a weekly basis,” he said in victory lane, “I love racing here, and hope we continue to get huge crowds. I also have to thank everyone on this team for working so hard, and getting us a very good car.”
In preliminary action, Forsberg timed in 12th fastest, and won his heat race.
F&F Racing would like to thank Lucas Oil, Pit Stop USA, HRP, CRV, Inventory Sales, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Wilwood, and Kaizer Wheels, K&N, Roseville Precision, Austism Speaks, FK Rod Ends, and PT Shocks for their support in 2014.
