Racing returns to the Redwood Acres Raceway this weekend with a full night of action on Saturday, including the North State Modifieds.

The third night of the season is being sponsored by O’Reilly Auto Parts and SuperCuts and will also feature the Late Models, Legends, Bombers, Mini Stocks and Roadrunners.

Jeremiah Martin leads Bob Ratzlaff by seven points in the Roadrunner season standings after two races, while Eric O’Ferrall leads the way in the Mini Stocks, just five points ahead of both C.J. Dalton and Colton Kinsey.

In the Bomber division, Tyler Krupa and Raymond Taylor, Jr. are tied for the lead, while Chris Lawrence leads the field in the Legends division, holding a 10-point advantage over Brett Murrell. 

Luke Hall leads the Late Models after winning the only race of the year so far.

Saturday’s North State Modified Series race will be the third race of the season for the Northern California touring division. 

Kyle Tellstrom is one of the top drivers not just in modified competition but in all short track racing on the west coast and has won both feature events this season at Shasta Speedway and Madera Speedway. 

The grandstands open at 4 p.m., with the racing getting under way at 5:30 p.m.
