Redwood Acres Raceway is a 3/8 mile paved oval track in Eureka, California. The facility opened in 1947 and is still in operation today. Known as "The Acres", Redwood Acres Raceway has also been known as Redwood Speedway, Redwood Acres Speedway, Redwood Acres Fairgrounds and Eureka Speedway. The track started out as a .625 mile dirt oval but was reconfigured in 1956 and 1957 to accommodate the NASCAR Grand National (now Sprint Cup) Series. The speedway went from its original dirt configuration to its current asphalt configuration in 1987. The track features 6 degrees of banking on the front stretch, 2 degrees of banking on the back and 12 degrees in the corners.

Redwood Acres Raceway hosted the NASCAR Pacific Coast Late Model/Winston West series in 1964, 1968, 1972, 1989 and 1990 as well as the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Tour from 1988-1993 as well as in 1995. The track was under NASCAR sanctioning between 1988-1995 but has since been unsanctioned by any racing body. Rich and Linda Olson promoted the raceway between 1988 through 2013. In 2014, the father/daughter combination of Blair and Jennifer Aiken took over promoting duties. Current local divisions include bombers, roadrunners, mini stocks, Thunder Roadsters and late models.
