I’m back from another weekend at Formula Drift, and what can I tell you, it’s been another action packed, exciting, and incredibly worthwhile experience.
In 2006, Chris Forsberg had a new car, a new title sponsor ( Sears Auto Center), and appeared on the cover of Super Street magazine. However, he also only made top 8 once, and failed to make top 16 twice, and found himself without a sponsor for the 2007 season. From there, Forsberg decided to run as a privateer, picking up Maxxis tires as his lone major sponsor. Forsberg’s 2007 season was iconic for privateers, picking up 2 event wins, a top qualifier award, and 2 nd place overall in the Formula D points. Going into 2008, Chris has signed a title sponsorship with NOS Energy drinks as well as renewing with Maxxis Tires, and looks to be one of the top guns entering 2008 as he returns in the same Titan V8-powered Roadster. We sat down with Chris to recap 2007 and talk about 2008.
