Andy Forsberg Wins Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals Championship
Andy Forsberg won his first Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals Championship at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California. Forsberg also won Thursday night’s first preliminary night feature in the 15th annual sprint car event for 360 motors. He also picked up a $5000 first prize for winning Saturday’s 40-lap feature race.
Forsberg started out in the front row in his A&A Stepping Stone, K&N Filters, Red Line Oil, Auto Meter, FK Rod Ends # 92 Thursday night. Early on the race was going to be decided by either tire wear or catching the right breaks while battling with traffic. Forsberg’s break came around lap eight when Willie Croft made a mistake. Forsberg passed and won the race.

Forsberg uses K&N Engineering Products. “My dad raced and I grew up with K&N Filters,” said Forsberg. “We use the K&N Oil and Air Filters and I wouldn’t put anything else on our vehicles. The debris stays out of our engines with K&N and the products work great.”
On Saturday night things changed for Forsberg came on lap eight when Hirst drifted a little high going into turn one. Forsberg was in position and took the lead coming out of turn two. On lap nine the first of six flat right rear tires began to show when Korey Lovell and Brad Bumgarner had problems. “I had visions of blowing out tires,” said Forsberg. “The track conditions and the weather were big concerns.”
Forsberg continued to lead and work his way through traffic. On lap 26 Willie Croft tangled with another car and flipped. During the red, the officials allowed the crews to add air pressure to the tires and make minor adjustments for the final four laps.

On the restart Forsberg’s crew continued to make the right calls and helped Forsberg comfortably lead the race. The final four laps ended with the top three staying in their spots. Kyle Hirst finished second and defending champion Brent Kaeding finished third.
“Winning was icing on the cake,” said Forsberg. “Our next race is at Tulare, California. I hope we get out of there in one piece.”
