Redwood Acres Raceway to host Bomber Bash

Eureka, CA (July 26, 2017) – A late addition to Redwood Acres Raceway’s 2017 schedule is set for the next race scheduled for Saturday August 5th. The 3/8-mile paved oval in Northern California will host a Bomber Bash presented by Four Star Realty, Lally Motorsports and Renner Petroleum.

As happened during the 2016 Fall Spectacular, there will be two 50-lap features, each paying $1,000 for first place. The payout for both events for second on back are $500 for second, $300 for third, $200 for fourth and $150 for fifth. Drivers who finish in positions sixth on back will get $100. There is no entry fee on the night for the bombers, only pit passes have to be purchased.

The two-race event could shake up the point standings in the local bomber division presented by Fortuna Wheel & Brake. Currently John Lally leads Jim Redd by 37 points followed by Bethany Rapp who is 38 points behind. Kolby Jackson holds down fourth, 49 points behind Lally while Kim Sorrels is 75 points in arrears to the leader. Should Lally face troubles, all four competitors could close the gap. Likewise, it could be an opportunity for Lally to extend his championship lead.

Last year’s Bomber Bash during the Fall Spectacular had a great turnout with 20 cars and drivers. Roseville racer, Erick Ray was the winner of the first feature while Lake County racer, Terry Pittman won the second main. Ryan Walters was the overall two-race champion. Other top stars in the division include R.J. Randall of Ukiah and Kelseyville’s Mike Sullivan. Both drivers have found their way to victory lane at the Acres in 2017. Another competitor who has won this year is Jeff French of Laytonville. French won the feature on July 1st. More of the top competition in Northern California is expected to enter the event as it nears.

Besides the bombers, roadrunners, mini stocks, Legends and Thunder Roadsters will also be in action for the night. Grandstands open at 5:00 PM while racing will begin promptly at 6:00 PM.
