Photos by Ray Hamill/ – Raquel Krupa was all smiles after winning her first-ever main event at the Redwood Acres on Saturday.

The Redwood Acres Raceway season closed out in style on Saturday with all five divisions n action along with the North State Modified Series.

And after a shortened summer season because of COVID-19, champions were crowned in all five divisions.

A familiar face was on hand for the Late Models, with track legend Mic Moulton filling in for Dustin Walters, who wrapped up the season championship.

And Moulton enjoyed a successful return, winning both the heat race and the main event.

David Henderson placed second, with Scott Baker, Eugene Palmer and Ed Rasmussen rounding out the top five.

The Bomber division served up an entertaining afternoon of action, with Raquel Krupa holding off Sam Brown to win her first-ever main event at the local track.

A second-place finish, however, was enough to earn Sam Brown the season championship, with closest rival Donnie Brown finishing fifth.

Jordan Krupa was third, with Tony Ramazzotti in fourth.

The Mini Stocks in action on Saturday.

In the Roadrunners division, Bryan Brandt finished second behind Jeremiah Martin in the main event, but that was good enough to earn him the season championship.

In the Mini Stocks, Gary Klientobe secured the summer championship with a third-place finish in the main event behind winner Jarrett Mayo and Eric O’Ferrall.

In the Legends division, points leader Dane Nissen was unable to attend, securing the championship for James Nichols.
