June 6 Race At Redwood Acres Raceway Canceled

Via RAR Media

Eureka, CA (May 27, 2020) – After consulting Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich, Redwood Acres Raceway officials regretfully announce that the race scheduled for June 6 has been canceled. Track officials requested permission to race what would have been the 2020 season opening event but Dr. Frankovich denied the request. Dr. Frankovich indicated that racing at the Acres could begin very soon. Raceway officials have requested that the race scheduled for June 20 be allowed and are hopeful that the season can begin on that date.

The cancellation of the June 6 event marks the third cancellation of scheduled racing action at RAR due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The original season opening event was scheduled on May 2 but was canceled. The May 16 event which would have featured the Upstate Bomber Series was also canceled. The North State Modified Series was scheduled to join the local action for the only time in 2020 on June 6 but will be added to the Fall Spectacular weekend on September 26 and 27. Late models will highlight what will hopefully be the first race of 2020 on June 20 with all other local divisions of Legends, bombers, mini stocks, Bandoleros and roadrunners also taking to the track.

Redwood Acres Raceway would like to thank all of our fans, drivers, crew members, officials and sponsors for their support and patience during this difficult time.
