Redwood Acres Raceway's Tentative 2017 Schedule Released

Tentative 2017 Schedule

By Matthew Sullivan's

Eureka, California's Redwood Acres Raceway has released its tentative schedule for the 2017 season. 13 dates are listed between the months of April through September with the schedule still in the process of being finalized.

The third-annual Firecracker 100 late model race will take place Saturday July 1st. At the conclusion of the night's races, RAR will also a fireworks display which have been real crowd pleasers in the two previous years.

In addition to the local cars, Redwood Acres Raceway will host several touring series events in 2017. The ever-competitive North State Modified Series will return to the Acres for the third straight season for three visits. The NSMS event is a special Sunday-evening affair on Memorial Day weekend May 28th. The mods return on Saturday July 22nd and then for the final time on Saturday September 9th.

Another highly anticipated event will be the debut of the West Coast Sportsman Series at RAR on Saturday August 5th. The series is in its inaugural season and features Grand National-type cars that formerly raced in NASCAR's K&N West Series. The Acres is one of only two paved ovals currently on the 2017 West Coast Sportsman Series schedule so the event will be something not to be missed.

Outlaw kart racing will return to Redwood Acres Raceway in 2017. Six races are scheduled with the opener on Friday April 21st and the finale on Saturday September 16th. All races for the outlaw karts will be non-point paying events.

Acres management is still in the process of finalizing potential dates for the Redwood Acres Fair but does have Tractor Pulls scheduled for Saturday June 25th. Friday August 11th and Saturday August 12 will be the annual monster truck show in the Acres infield. The 2017 season concludes with the Fall Spectacular and the crowning of champions in roadrunners, bombers, mini stocks, Legends, Thunder Roadsters and late models.

It should be another fantastic season of racing at the Acres in 2017. For more information, please visit the track's official website www.RacingTheAcres.com.
