Forsberg teaches Sport Compact lessons, returns to classroom to focus on own studies

first_imgSLAYTON, Minn. – After teaching her competition a thing or two, Stephanie Forsberg is going to concentrate on the classroom.Forsberg raced to her third consecutive Mach-1 Sport Compact track championship at hometown Murray County Speedway in 2014. She was a nine-time winner at Slayton, capturing her final vic­tory of the season and career 26th checkers on the day after her 20th birthday. “I just like this class and the people I race with,” said Forsberg, who had started racing in a non-sanctioned 4-cylinder hornet class at the tender age of 13. “I took some lumps and nearly totaled my first car before we sold it.” She was 15 when she came home and announced that not only was she ready to get back on the track, she’d already bought a car. Forsberg returned with a pink ride in honor of her grand­mother Maddy, who’d been diagnosed with breast cancer. “I always had a passion for racing. I grew up around the track and I missed it,” she said. Forsberg enjoyed a career-type season in 2013 with a dozen feature wins, in addition to Murray County and Redwood Speedway track and Allstar Performance Minnesota state honors.Visits to Arlington Raceway, Fairmont Raceway, Jackson Speedway and Redwood in Minnesota, Algona Raceway and I-35 Speedway in Iowa and Raceway Park in South Dakota were also in­cluded in her 43 starts in 2014. Forsberg’s season highlight came when one-year-old cousin Gavin Wynia attended his first race at Slayton and got to join the rest of the family for victory lane pictures after she won the main event that evening.“I owe a lot of credit to my dad (and fellow Sport Compact driver) Neil. His support has been above and beyond,” she said. “There were days when I’d have to be at work at 6 a.m. and when I’d get home at 2 p.m. he’d have both cars washed and ready for that night.” Her 2014 ride – white, with black lettering and a pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness – has been sold as Forsberg, a sophomore majoring in elementary education at Minnesota State Univer­sity in Mankato, will focus on her classroom endeavors in the near future. “I may be back part-time in a Hobby Stock. There was such a learning curve in the Sport Com­pacts, I can only imagine what it will be like in the Hobby Stocks,” Forsberg said. “I’m not going to quit racing. I couldn’t do that.” Her parents Neil and Wendy Forsberg, boyfriend and two-time national champion Nate Coopman and his father Jerry, T.J. Gertsema and Terry Geisen helped turn wrenches on Forsberg’s car. Her sponsors included Sturdevant’s Auto Parts, Broadway Bowl, Slayton Chiropractic, Sean Sol­heim Photography, Kevin Nelson Storage, Rick Widboom Motorsports, Mike Carlson Fabricating, Tim’s Plumbing and Heating and John and Heather Engelkes, all of Slayton; Classy & Sassy Cloth­ing Store in Worthington; Last Chance Auto Parts in Fulda; and Ryan Cellan Motorsports of Wallingford.last_img read more

College Fantasy Football: Expert DFS picks, sleepers for Week 10 DraftKings contests

first_imgWeek 10 will be a rough one for college fantasy football and DFS owners, as once again several top teams are on a bye — Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona State, Washington State, Wisconsin, and Ohio State, just to name a few. Be sure to get any players from those teams out of your season-long lineups. Now let’s take a look at some stars and possible values sleepers to fill out those DraftKings DFS lineups.Before getting into this week’s picks, just a reminder that if you’re looking for more help setting your season-long or DFS lineups, check out the comprehensive Week 9 college fantasy football rankings at CFBDynasty . Every week, CFBDynasty provides college fantasy football player rankings  for each position based on projected fantasy points.

GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP Week 10 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: QBsBest Start: Charlie Brewer, Baylor vs West Virginia ($7,800). Brewer has proven to be a valuable DFS asset this season, passing for more than 300 yards or scoring at least three TDs in all but one game. He should be in for another big game this week as Baylor hosts West Virginia, who are currently giving up more than 33 points per game.Best Value: Max Duggan,TCU at Oklahoma State ($6,300). After an inconsistent start to the season, Duggan has steadily improved each of the past four games. Culminating in a 345-total-yard and three-TD effort in TCU’s Week 9 upset of Texas. This week’s matchup should be a little easier as TCU goes on the road to take on Oklahoma State and its 117th-ranked pass defense. Best Sleeper: Ryan Hilinski, South Carolina vs Vanderbilt ($6,000). Hilinski is coming off one of his better games, passing for 319 yards and a TD at Tennessee. He will be looking to repeat that performance this week against a bad Vanderbilt defense, currently ranked 114th in the country.MORE: CFBDynasty player rankingsWeek 10 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: RBsBest Start: Zack Moss, Utah at Washington ($7,400). In the three games since returning from a shoulder injury, Moss has rolled up more than 500 total yards and six TDs, all while averaging 32 fantasy points over the same period. His hot streak should continue as the Utes travel to Washington to take on the Huskies, who are allowing an appetizing 147 yards per game on the ground.Best Value: Artavis Pierce, Oregon State at Arizona ($5,900). Since taking over the starting RB spot for the injured Jermar Jefferson, Pierce has only had one bad game. A 10-carry 21-yard effort against a very good Utah defense. But in his four other starts, Pierce has been great, averaging 23 fantasy points per game. This week, with Jefferson still on the mend, Pierce will get a full workload against an Arizona team ranked 119th in total defense and giving up 470 yards per game.Best Sleeper: Tavien Feaster, South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt ($5,300). Feaster was a little up and down to start the season, ranging from 28.9 points in his fifth game to 2.7 in his sixth. But with the injury to fellow RB Rico Dowdle, Feaster has found his groove and racked up 255 yards and two TDs in the last two matchups. And he should be salivating over this week’s opponent, as the Gamecocks host the 2-5 Commodores, who are giving up more than 200 rushing yards per game.  Week 10 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: WRsBest Start: Sage Surratt, Wake Forest vs. North Carolina State ($8,000). Surratt does not seem to care who is throwing him the ball, averaging 30 fantasy points over seven games and only scoring under 27 twice. This week’s opponent, North Carolina State, has an average pass defense and should not pose much of a deterrent. Best Value: Laviska Shenault, Colorado at UCLA ($6,400). Shenault had been a bit quiet since returning from an abdominal injury, managing only 11 touches for 132 yards and a TD against Oregon and Washington State. But he broke out in the Buffaloes’ Week 9 matchup with the Trojans, catching nine passes for 172 yards and a TD. Start him with confidence this week against the UCLA Bruins who are giving up more than 450 yards per game. Best Sleeper: David Bell, Purdue vs. Nebraska ($5,000). Purdue’s freshman sensation, Bell has picked up for the injured Rondale Moore, scoring 22, 37, and 41 points in three of the five games since the injury. Look for the Boilermakers to to keep getting Bell the ball this week as they play host to Big 10 rival Nebraska.last_img read more
