With four wins under his belt throughout the month of May, Andy Forsberg entered June with confidence, "All three teams that I have raced for have been pretty competitive this year," shared the driver. "We know if the cars are right, we'll be a factor. When asked what he accredited to a successful May, Andy said, "We just had our ducks in a row. The F&F X1 Team that I run for, they're a top notch crew. They put a really good car on the track. They've got a good fuel guy, they've got a good setup guy, and they've got me in the car." Referring to the A&A Car that he drives in Chico on Friday nights, Andy continued, We seem to be having things going our way right now.It's been a really solid season, and it's been one of those years so far when everything just seems to be going right."
When asked the key to success, Andy was quick to mention starting positions. "There are some drivers who if you start behind them, you're probably not going to catch them. I feel the same about myself. If you put me on the front row, even though I've got a couple of guys behind me who I'm concerned about, if I do my job, I'm not too concerned that they're going to get by me. The same goes for them. Put them on the front row, and I'm probably not going to get by them. We just have to keep on keeping on. What we've been doing has been working so we just need to stay on course."
Andy Forsberg and his Teams try to avoid traveling too far from home, and race predominantly in northern California, within in the neighborhood of four hours of their homes. According to Andy, his favorite track is Placerville. "It's a pretty small track and is a high-bank track compared to the other ones around here," he explained.
When asked about the performance of the car's he been driving this season, Andy said, "everything has been going real good. We use K&N air filters, oil filters and the cleaning solutions. My dad drove since 1968, and I'm a second generation driver," he continued. "The technology has chanced a little bit with filters, but if you look back at my dad's cars, it was always K&N air filters on there."
I would like to thank our sponsors and fans," shared Andy. "I appreciate everything they do. My crew and my sponsors are also my friends and family. Without them none of this would be possible. We're all in this thing together."
