The North State Modified Series will return to the Redwood Acres Raceway for the ninth straight year next week, the first of two stops for the series at the local raceway this season.

Redwood Acres is one of just two raceways — along with the Shasta Speedway — that have hosted an NSMS event each summer since the series began racing in 2014.

The North State Modified Series will also return to the local raceway on the final weekend of the season in late September, and the series is known to feature some intense racing action.

The season resumes a week from Saturday, with the third night of racing action of 2022, and the race night will also include Legends, Mini Stocks, Bombers and Roadrunners.

Raceway officials also announced recently that there will be a change to the main event format for the Legends division

Beginning next week, the division will race two 25-lap main events. 

The winner of the first main event will earn $250, and the starting order of the second main event will be determined by the finish of the first main.

The winner of the second main event will earn $1,000, with $800 for second, $600 for third, $400 for fourth $300 for fifth and $250 for sixth.

Drivers who finish seventh and beyond get a $200 payout, and any driver who travels more than 100 miles to race the Legends division will receive one free pit pass.

After the opening two races of the season, Tyler Avelar leads Jordon Paiment by four points in the division championship standings, with Maleesa Miles in third.
