Forsberg Steals Win In Petaluma Opener

PETALUMA, Calif. – Andy Forsberg pounced on a split second of indecision by race leader Jodie Robinson to steal the win with half a lap to go in the sprint car season opener at Petaluma Speedway Sunday night. As the pair ran nose to tail through turn two on the white flag lap, they came up on a lapped car and Robinson, two turns from an apparent victory after a dominating run, had a decision to make. After splitting the lapped car, they met at the exit of turn two wheel to wheel and Forsberg won the shoving match onto the backstretch before leading the last half lap to the checkered flag. When we split the lapped car, I only knew I was going to go where she didn’t. A disappointed Robinson blamed herself  for “lousing it up at the end,” with her decision on the lapped car.
