Fireworks Planned On And Off The Track Saturday At Redwood Acres Raceway

The 2021 season at Redwood Acres Raceway hits its mid-point this Saturday with the track’s biggest race of the summer. Harper Motors will present the Firecracker 100 featuring the late model division. In addition, the best bomber drivers in the region will race against division locals as the Upstate Bomber Series makes its only stop to the Acres this season. Legends, mini stocks and roadrunners will also take to the track for what will be a full night of racing. To cap the night off, a fireworks display will occur following the 100-lap late model main event.

Late model points are currently led by David Miller. Only nine points separate the top five in standings as Miller leads Luke Hall, Ryan Walters, David Henderson and Dustin Walters. In addition to competing for points in the Upstate Bomber Series, drivers will also be competing for points in RAR’s bomber division. Loren Powers, Jr. leads Trystan Mucci, Mike Collins, Charlie Collins and Charley Tour in the Upstate points. Tyler Krupa leads the local standings by four markers over his sister Raquel Krupa while Ed Rasmussen, Jordan Krupa and Raymond Taylor, Jr. complete the top five.

Chris Lawrence has a comfortable lead in the Legends division standings. 29 points separate him and second place Tyler Krupa. Brett Murrell, Andy Thornton and Brandon White are the other top runners in points. Things are much tighter in the mini stocks with Eric O’Ferrall leading Colton Kinsey by two points. Sam Brown and C.J. Dalton are still within striking distance of the leader while Allison McCarty is fifth. Jeremiah Martin leads the roadrunner points by 20 over Bob Ratzlaff. Third through fifth include Steve Kimberling, Tanisha Ratzlaff and Nick Ford.
