RAIN AND SEVERE STORMS HALT RACING AT “THE CONCRETE CASTLE”

(Tioga Center, NY) The weather patterns were not kind to Shangri-La II Motorspeedway on Saturday. The ASA Member Track once again fell to the will of Mother Nature as heavy rain and severe storms took up residence over the half mile concrete oval. With the cancellation of the racing program, only two more nights of weekly racing remain in the 2013 season. Gene Purvis holds largest points lead in any of the three classes. The four cylinder stock driver is holding on to an 85 point advantage and is looking at his first Shangri-La II championship. Another driver looking for his first championship is Tyler Rypkema. The Owego, NY Sportsman driver holds a 30 point advantage over Paul Johnson. The Pudgies Pizza Street Stock division has the top four drivers separated by just 66 points heading into the final two points nights. Chris Zacharias holds a 9 point lead over defending series champion, Jeff Goodwin. Jason Duke, Sr (a team mate to Zacharias) is third in points, 47 out of the lead. The winner on opening night, Charlie Sharpsteen is fourth in points; just 66 points out of the lead.

The speedway has opened up the rules for the remaining races of the season allowing cars built to Shangri-La II or RoC rules legal for competition.
