"I believe we have good momentum now. We have been fast and competitive at all the races this season," Forsberg said after the win. "The races we didn't finish, those were just racing deals that happen in sprint car racing…with a new team, there are going to be bugs to shake out, but we seem to have positive momentum from the start, which is rare with new teams."

Forsberg is looking for his record fifth Civil War Series championship this season. The Brian Cannon Motorsports entry has steadily improved this season, and the team is feeling confident about the chances of securing another championship. Forsberg says the team's ability to adapt to different tracks has been, and will continue to be key.

"We have been very fast everywhere we've raced so far…four different tracks in five nights of racing has been real beneficial. And since the Civil War Series travels to six different tracks, it's important to remain versatile."

When asked about his teams hot start, Forsberg credited K&N Filters with keeping the team up front early in the year. "They don't call this motor sports for nothing. You have to have a good motor to win, and the motors are very expensive, so we need to take care of our investments. K&N does that for us. Keeping the oil clean with great filters and keeping dirt out of the intake with the carbon fiber air box system is key. We try and get as many nights out of a freshen as possible, and K&N products help us do that."
