Eureka, CA (January 14, 2019) – Northern California race fans can breathe a little easier tonight as there is a tentative schedule has been released for the 2019 season. In addition, news of the new promoter(s) was detailed as well as a new director of competition.

Nine potential race dates are on the docket for 2019. The year is set to start off on April 27 and end on September 21. Tentative dates from the North State Modified Series have been made as well with the series potentially visiting RAR three times this season. None of the dates are on back-to-back weekends. It has also been determined that the Redwood Acres fair board will serve as the track’s promoter at least through 2019.

Also of note are the race dates for each division at the Acres. Dates for each division will be determined in the near future. It is possible that divisions will not race the full schedule but decisions regarding that will be forthcoming in rules meetings for each division. A “competition committee” will be created for each division. Drivers in each class will vote to have two to three drivers represent the class. Those drivers will then talk to officials for any issues or problems that may arise during the season. Former RAR driver Jaison Chand has been named as the director of competition, the highest ranking official.

As mentioned, the final schedule and rules for each division will be determined in upcoming meetings at the fairgrounds.
