The Redwood Acres Raceway will host a Motorsports Night during the Redwoods Acres Fair, which gets under way next week.

The special night of action wug be held on June 24, with the action beginning at 6 p.m. and admission will be free for all fair attendees.

Members of the Redwood Sports Car Club will be on hand to demonstrate the power and fury of their vehicles with a Drag Lap Shoot-Out.

Grassroots Drifting will also have a Slideways Exhibition for fans of the Fast & Furious kind.

The main event should be a real crowd pleaser as the Down & Dirty Hillbilly Boat Race will conclude all the action.

This will be the first boat race at Redwood Acres since 2016.

The twist to bringing boat races back will be that the event will be run on the infield of the 3/8-mile track. 

The main reason boat races have been off the schedule for so long was because of the damage the events did to the racing surface.

Boat racing in the dirt should add an all new and exciting challenge to the action that fans will not want to miss out on.

The Down & Dirty Hillbilly Boat Race will pay $500 to the winner. 

Rules for the event are posted on as well as the Redwood Acres Raceway Facebook page.
