PETERSEN MEDIA- Friday night, Andy Forsberg made his long awaited return to Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA as he was at the helm of the F&F Racing No. x1 machine for the opening night of the Peter Murphy Classic. The night would not go as planned for the team as an early incident would collect Forsberg and bring his night to an end.
“It was a long night, and unfortunately we tore a bit of equipment up early in the feature,” Andy Forsberg said. “We timed in where we needed to be and got through our heat and that was about the extent of our night.”
With 52 cars in attendance for the Peter Murphy Classic opener, Forsberg timed the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in third quickest in his group which placed him on the front row of his heat race.
Lining up alongside Mitchell Faccinto, Forsberg would settle into second but would soon start laying down some impressive laps as he put his car on the ragged edge at the famed high banked facility. Reeling in Faccinto lap after lap, Forsberg would just run out of time as he finished second which would get him into the 30-lap feature event but would not get him into the Dash.
Taking the green flag from the 12th starting position, the surface would already have a little rubber down before things came to life. Working the bottom groove, Forsberg would see a car loop it in front of him and with no where to go he would get in on the action with another car getting into him.
The car would be beaten and battered and Forsberg would be forced to take it back to the pit area on the hook and his night would come to a close.
“Tulare can be tough on equipment at times and unfortunately it bit us tonight,” Forsberg added. “It sucks to tear up equipment, but I have to thank the guys for all their hard work. We will get it back together and see what we can do in Chico, CA this weekend.”
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 2018.
