Take a look at your First News for Thursday, April 25.

The much-anticipated opening of the new Kern County Raceway Park has been pushed back once again. The track, located adjacent to Enos Lane and Highway 5, had originally planned to open on April 20 but that was pushed back to May 4 due to construction delays. The grand opening has now been pushed back to May 18.

And PG&E might have a lot of explaining to do after the company that was doing work in Bakersfield on Monday called PG&E for an OK to dig, but then struck a natural gas pipeline, which caused an explosion and fire.

All this and more. Watch this morning's news on "First Look with Scott Cox."
