With the 2023 Redwood Acres Raceway season just around the corner, a test and tune day will take place this weekend.

The new season begins later in the month on April 29 with the much-anticipated Rhododendron 100 for the late models and opening night will feature all five local divisions.

And drivers can use Saturday’s annual pre-season test and tune to prepare for the season.

The pit gates will open at 10 a.m. with practice taking place from noon to 5 p.m.

The cost is $15.
