FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Forsberg Was Spooky Good Saturday
Marysville, CA (Oct 26, 2019) – Auburn’s Andy Forsberg snuck by Shane Hopkins on lap 15 to win the 25-lap Spooktacular Halloween themed races Saturday night at Marysville Raceway. Hopkins was looking for his first career win at Marysville, and even though he got passed, still hung on to finish second. Cole Macedo drove up from the fourth row to capture the third spot. Twenty-two drivers got the call after six cars transferred from the B main event. Things got off rocky when Stephen Ingraham climbed a wheel and flipped wildly into the turn one fence. After some time to remove him from the car, he walked off under his own power. Lap five saw Brad Bumgarner flip after clipping a stopped Pat Harvey. Bumgarner’s car caught on fire but safety crew were quick on the scene to put it out. Once Forsberg got around Hopkins it was clear sailing for Mr. Excitement. Finishing fourth was Blake Carrick. Fifth went to Sean Becker. A total of 28-winged 360 sprint cars attended the race.
The Sport Mod main event was very entertaining. Jimmy Ford passed Todd Cooper on lap 12 to secure the popular win. Ford went on to lead the final eight laps. Cooper would finish second. Brian Cooper charged towards the front and finished third. The top three put on a great show. Todd closed in on Jimmy the last few laps to make it very interesting. Give Ford credit and he never faltered behind the wheel and held off two champions in the Cooper brothers. Richard Vander Ploeg led the first five laps, before spinning to a stop. Todd Cooper inherited the lead at that point. David Larabee drove a solid race and finished fourth. Timothy Allerdings rounded out the top five.
Cameron Haney Jr. led all 15 laps to pick up his first win of 2019 at Marysville in the Crate Sprints. Cody Smith entered the race as the favorite, but something mechanically let him down and he coasted the car back into the infield on lap six. Brandon Dozier finished second. Give Haney Jr. credit, he won the race by almost six seconds. Jaylen Deas finished third. It was good to have Deas back in action.
Terry Schank Jr. led all 20-laps to win his 98th career main event with the famed Hunt Magnetos team. Josh Young was the closest competitor. Young finished second and was 2.571 seconds behind at the finish. Nathan Johnson was solid all night and finished third. Good to see the Johnson family back at the races. In fact, all the wingless cars that showed up got a test and tune opportunity for the upcoming Nov. 9 Mell Hall Memorial make up rain date featuring the Civil War sprints and the Hunt Magneto Wingless Series.
