SEASON OPENER CANCELLED DUE TO MOTHER NATURE AT SHANGRI-LA II
Mother Nature forced the ownership of Shangri-La II Motorspeedway to cancel their season opener on Sunday afternoon. The ASA Member track endured two straight days of rain and extremely heavy cloudbursts leaving the infield area and the parking area flooded or extremely soggy. “We really wanted to get the season started” said track and event director, Amy Culver. “Mother Nature took control on Mother’s Day. We will now look forward to seeing everyone at next Sunday’s RoC and Concrete Rumble”. Rain also cancelled the track’s open practice session on Saturday afternoon.
