July 5th Must See Mid-Week Blowout
Helberg Shatters Track Record - Pierce Claims Must See Xtreme Sprint Win
Tioga Center, NY - Jo Jo Helberg set a track record that will be hard to beat when the Must See Xtreme Sprint Series made their first ever visit to the high banks of Shangri-La II Motorspeedway on a special July 5th mid-week show. Helberg was fastest during the time trials, but Aaron Pierce was the first across the line claiming the feature win. The Mid-State Vintage Stock Car Club also made their first ever visit to the ASA member track. Bill Fitzsimmons, who drove a Legends Car at the former Tioga Speedway, was the winner in his 3X Modified. Gordie Wood was the first Limited Sportsman at the checkers and Rob Whipple was the first Vintage Sportsman to cross the line. Jimmy Zacharias claimed his fourth Sportsman win of the season in dominating fashion while Lee Sharpsteen continued to keep a stranglehold on Street Stock victory lane with his fifth win in seven events.

June 16 - Hoosier Daddy Night
June 16, 2012 - Jerry Dineen broke a two year drought from victory lane on Saturday night at the ASA Member Shangri-La II Motorspeedway, narrowly defeating a hard charging Jim Lamoreaux in Late Model action. The Sportsman feature was a nail biter as the top four changed positions multiple times over the closing five laps, but Tony Hanbury was up to the challenge collecting his second win of the season. Lee Sharpsteen faced some very stout competition, but prevailed for his third win of the year in Street Stock action. Jeff Ameigh kept the car together and held off the challenge from brother Brandon for his third win in the Pudgies Pizza Four Cylinder Stocks.
A beautiful early summer night was enjoyed by the fans and competitors as Hoosier Tire East presented Hoosier Daddy Night on Fathers Day eve at Shangri-La II Motorspeedway. Heat racing gave everyone a glimpse of what was in store for the night as every heat was full of close racing. The only problem in the heats was in the Sportsman division when Zach Curren spun coming off of turn four and collected the outside wall with both ends of his ride. Curren came into the night just two points out of the lead. Corey Mosher was driving a car out of the Zacharias Racing shop, but when Curren's car was wrecked beyond repair at the track, Curren became the driver in the Zacharias car.
