Redwood Acres season-opening night pushed back again

Redwood Acres Raceway officials canceled a second season event on Friday due to the ongoing restrictions surrounding COVID-19.

A race night scheduled for May 16 has been canceled and the 2020 season is now scheduled to begin on Jun 6 instead.

Raceway officials said in a press release that they are “continuing to work toward completing as much of the intended 2020 schedule as possible and are hoping that the season will begin on June 6 just as much as race fans, drivers and crew do.”

The original season opening event, which was scheduled for this weekend, was postponed in early April.

In some positive news, construction for the new state-of-the-art scoreboard at the local raceway began last weekend. 

The scoreboard will be up and running in time for the new 2020 season opener. 

In an effort to help race fans get through this stressful period, RAR has been hosting live viewings of classic races on Facebook. 

That will continue on Saturday night at 6 p.m., with a viewing of the Spears Southwest Tour Series visit to RAR from 2015.
