ASA and Shangri-La II Motorspeedway -  We build Champions !!!



Track management at Shangri-La II Motorspeedway is going about the business of awakening their concrete high banked half mile speedway from its winter slumber. Part of that awakening is renewing relationships which were in place during the previous season and setting up the schedule of competition.  Shangri-La II (or S-2 as it is affectionately known) has added a practice session to their 2012 schedule. The added practice session is set for Saturday May 5th running from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm. “We had just one practice session on the schedule” stated track manager, Amy Stilson. “Opening weekend is going to be jam packed at the speedway with the Al Robinson Benefit leading off the activity on Friday May 11th.  The only practice that was scheduled was for May 12th – the day before the season opener. We wanted to give the teams more time to get their cars dialed in, and for the drivers to get their timing back”.  The track has added two new four cylinder stock divisions which will run weekly for 2012 as well as brought back full powered tour type modified racing for six events. The added practice session takes place just two weeks before the season opener for the Race of Champions Modified Tour which will make three stops at Shangri-La II this season.  Shangri-La II Motorspeedway also announced this week that the facility will once again be an ASA Member track for the fourth consecutive season.




Reminder to Race Teams – Please remember to keep up on the 2012 rules by reading through the Rules section of the website found under the Track Info section. This is where the most up to date set of rules for competition at the speedway are listed.

Hoosier remains the official tire brand used in competition at Shangri-La II Motorspeedway. The track will sell their own tires in 2012 dealing directly with Hoosier Tire East. French's Auto Parts will not be providing Hoosier Tires at Shangri-La II in 2012. Please refer to the Required Tires information listed under the Racers Info section of the website.
