MODIFIEDS AND ASA LATE MODELS TO HEADLINE 2012 SEASON

Tioga Center, NY - The ownership and officials at Shangri-La II Motorspeedway in Tioga Center, NY have been extremely busy putting together an aggressive and exciting schedule for the 2012 racing season. The fourth season of competition at the ASA member track, also known as “The Concrete Castle” will see the return of Modified racing on the half mile high banks. The Modifieds will share headline division status with the ASA Late models. Sportsman and Street Stocks will return to the weekly racing menu and they will be joined by two new divisions. 4 Cylinder Stocks and Junior 4 Cylinders will compete weekly as entry level classes. The rules for these new divisions are posted on the track’s website. “The emphasis for 2012 is for everyone to have fun” stated track manager, Amy Stilson.  “We believe we are putting together a schedule which will showcase some of the best racing talent in the region as well as give some who have dreamed of racing, the opportunity to give it a try in an economical starting class”. 

The track has put together a 16 race schedule. The Modifieds are scheduled to have six races, three of which are Race of Champions events. The ASA Late Models are scheduled to appear in ten events, and will not race on the same dates as the Modifieds. The Sportsman and Street Stocks will compete weekly. The rules packages have been reviewed with no changes in the Modified, Late Model and Sportsman divisions. There have been a couple minor changes in the Street Stocks. Those changes are shown in the Rules section of the track website in red type. As for some of the highlights in the 4 Cylinder class rules – The minimum age for the 4 Cylinder Stocks is 17. The class is designed to be an amateur class and the competitors cannot race in any other division. The Junior 4 Cylinders are restricted to competitors 14 – 17 years for age or 12 years and up with previous racing experience (i.e. Microds, Bandoleros, etc...) Drivers may not compete in any other division. Drivers with previous racing experience in any other division (i.e. Street Stocks, SST, etc...) are not eligible. Over competitive cars or drivers may be moved to Senior Division. This is the track’s first time setting up a new class, and there may need to be some adjustments to the rules as the season progresses. 

There will be on-going development of the Shangri-La II Truck division in 2012. One idea that has track management excited is the possibility of  is building a fleet six cylinder race trucks which lucky fans will have the chance to come out of the stands and run competitive laps around the track.  The track crews are also evaluating the work to be completed in 2012 which includes installing between 58 and 60 new lights for the racing surface, completing the restrooms and working on the track surface. “The track had two racing grooves at the end of 2011, and I know that we could easily have three competitive grooves” said owner/promoter George Swansborough. “The track surface has held up remarkably well the past three winters, and the concrete has cured excellently. Now we have to get out there and complete some maintenance which will make the competition even more exciting”.
