Junior Ace Video Reporter Joins Redwood Acres Raceway Staff

Eureka, CA (August 14, 2018) – Redwood Acres Raceway is proud to announce a special new staff member who will be using his talents to provide insight from a unique point of view. Seven-year-old Jacob Lawrence, who will be eight in the beginning of September, will be RAR’s new Junior Ace Video Reporter for the final two races of the 2018 season and into the future.

With his own initiative and the help of his family, Jacob started his own YouTube channel JacobsTV in July. Jacob interviewed several drivers during the most recent race on July 21st and also interacted with drivers in the Malicious Monster Truck Insanity Tour earlier this month. Jacob’s interviews quickly became a big hit amongst drivers and fans thanks to his enthusiasm and creativity. His perspective will give fans of all ages a chance to view the drivers and the races at Redwood Acres Raceway from a new and unique point of view.

Jacob’s passion for motorsports was inherited through his family. His father, Michael, better known to local race fans as Cheeseburger, raced at Redwood Acres Raceway for several years. Lawrence won the 2012 championship in the Roadrunner division and another track championship in the Bomber division in 2013. His two track titles, in two different divisions, puts his name alongside Randy Olson, Rusty Olson, Glenn Shewry, Mic Moulton, Otis Stabler and Paul Peeples, Jr. as the only drivers who’ve been able to do so since the Acres was paved in 1988.

Jacob’s position as the official Junior Ace Video Reporter for Redwood Acres Raceway will begin this Saturday for Driver Appreciation Night at the races, presented by Anderson Logging. You can find Jacob’s YouTube channel at or follow him on Facebook
