WELCOME TO THE REDWOOD RALLY!
Drag & Drive in the Pacific Northwest
The LEFT COAST REDWOOD RALLY is the first Drag & Drive style event on the West Coast. Our 2023 route took our participants through Northern California and Southern Oregon. The 700 mile route was filled with small towns, ocean views, and some of the tallest trees you've ever seen! We started at Redding Dragstrip, then on to Samoa Dragstrip, Coos Bay Speedway, Medford Oregon, then back to Redding.
Thank you for the overwhelming support in 2023!
Stay tuned for info on 2024.
- Heather & Jesse
Redwood Rally is a Drag-N-Drive event that includes driving an almost 700 mile loop, and drag racing at four West Coast dragstrips over five days. Though the concept of this event is nothing new (ie. Drag Week, Sick Week, RMRW) Heather & Jesse knew it was time to bring it to the West Coast, and started putting in the work to make it happen. During this five day event, September 26th-30th 2023, Participants will race at Redding Dragstrip, Samoa Dragstrip, Coos Bay Speedway, and Medford Dragstrip. Competition vehicles must be driven on public roads between each dragstrip, making this an interesting display of power-vs-reliability.
Drivers & Copilots will all follow the same route, stopping at predetermined "Pit Stop" sponsor locations. They must take a photo of their vehicle in front of each pit stop location in order to continue to compete in the Rally. We are really focused on promoting small businesses during this event, so we encourage participants to share and tag businesses in these photos on social media, and maybe even make a purchase at the locations. This helps all involved and helps to ensure future events are excitedly welcomed.

What is a Vagabond?
vag-a-bond, noun: A person who wanders from place to place without a fixed home.
Kind of a fun, fitting title for the Pacific NorthWest.
A Redwood Rally Vagabond is a way to be involved in the event, drive the route with family and friends, but not compete in the event itself. Vagabonds get free entrance to all tracks, just like racers. Vagabonds can bring travel trailers to camp (for free) at every track. Drivers & Copilots may opt to camp with Vagabonds, but Vagabonds are prohibited from carrying parts/tools/fuel for racers, and working on competition vehicles.
A Vagabond entry allows up to 4 people to travel the route per vehicle. Additional wristbands will be available if more than 4 in a vehicle/RV.
We will be putting together media contracts as the event gets closer. Positions will be limited. Approved Media Personnel will receive FREE Vagabond perks, exclusive trackside/starting line access, and other benefits in exchange for media usage and specific captures.
