Redwood Acres Raceway announces schedule adjustment


By Matthew J. Sullivan

The 2015 season at Redwood Acres Raceway is winding down but there is still plenty of racing left on the pavement on the 3/8-mile oval. It’s been an exciting year of racing at the Acres and there will be even more thrills than expected as RAR officials have announced alterations to the remaining 2015 schedule.

The next race on August 22nd remains unchanged as it will be Driver Appreciation Night at the raceway with all five local classes in action. The major change is on Labor Day weekend on Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th. The Saturday event will feature the third and final Tri-Holiday Classic event for the late models. On Sunday, the North State Modified Series returns to the Acres for the second time in 2015. The local classes of roadrunners, bombers, mini stocks and Thunder Roadsters will race both nights while the late models will not partake in Sunday’s events. Front gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM both nights. An open practice is scheduled on Friday September 4th from 2 to 7PM.

Saturday September 19th’s race will be Fan Appreciation Night as well as the final points event for all five local classes. The final event of the season on October 3rd will be the First Annual Big T Jackpot race for the roadrunners and the Bomber Bash. The second boat race of 2015 will follow the races and conclude the racing season at the Acres.
