No Regular Shows at Shangri-La II in 2010; Each Race will be Something Special

press2-11-08_2Look over the schedules released by most weekly operated speedways around this time of year and you will see a majority of their events listed as "regular show." That might signify a good race program, but it also indicates the same thing as the week before and the week afterward.

At Shangri-La II Motor Speedway in 2010, there will be no regular shows. All events will feature the track's four classes- Modifieds, ASA Late Models, Sportsman Modifieds, and Street Stocks- but every race night will be unique, whether that uniqueness comes from the action on the track or extra entertainment value added off the racing surface. Of course, every Saturday during the summer a single admission ticket is valid for both stock car racing at Shangri-La II and drag racing next door at SkyView Drags. The first three race dates on the 2010 schedule at the Concrete Castle provide a good cross section of the full season to follow. Opening day, Saturday, May 1, features the Concrete Duals, with double features in each class. The following week is Mother's Day Delight with discounted women's admission to the grandstand. Then on Sunday, May 16, New York State's premier paved track tour, the Race of Champions modified series, makes its Shangri-La II debut, highlighted by a 75-lap feature event.

"Whether it's showcasing our weekly racing divisions, recognizing an important part of our racing family, or just having a good time, fans will see something special every time we open the gates at Shangri-La II," declared track manager Amy Stilson. She added, "After all, George Swansbrough who owns the track calls himself Crazy George, so you've got to expect the unexpected at the Concrete Castle."

Weather permitting, Shangri-La II is scheduled to host open practice days on April 18 and April 25 in preparation for the Concrete Duals on May 1. For more information, call the speedway at 607-330-2622 or visit the official website,
