george corvetteMay 2, 2013 - Shangri-La II Motorspeedway in Tioga Center, NY is ready to open the gates for their fifth consecutive season of competition on the high banked concrete oval. Having completed the first of three scheduled early season practice sessions on a beautiful day last Saturday, the teams and staff are ready to start the 2013 season of competition with Mothers Day Madness on Sunday, May 12th.

The second practice day on the schedule precedes the opener on Saturday, May 11. In competition for the season opener at the ASA Member track will be the Late Models, Sportsman, Street Stocks and Four Cylinder Stocks. Pit Gates for the season opener will open at 12:00pm. Grandstand Gate opens and Hot Laps begin at 1:30pm. Racing will get the green flag at 3:00 pm. "This year, it's all about fun" stated track owner/promoter George Swansbrough. "We want everyone to come out and enjoy themselves as a family. There is nowhere else around where the fans can see two different styles of racing competition on the same night, at the same facility and all for one admission price."


Shangri-La II management is announcing the return of the "Wristband Program". For the third season in a row, the track will give spectators $ 2.00 off of their grandstand admission by returning with their wristband from the previous week's program. This program is good for all shows except the RoC Modified programs and the Fall Brawl.

This season, Pudgies Pizza Restaurants will be the title sponsor of the highly competitive Street Stock division. The speedway will provide Pudgies Pizza contingency stickers for the competitors' cars and Pudgies will present the Street Stock feature winner with a sheet pizza in victory lane each week. Pudgies Pizza is also supportive of the fans as they will give fans a discount on their food purchase by showing their wristband at the time they place their order at a Pudgies Pizza Restaurant. Pudgies Pizza specials will be announced weekly over the track PA system.

The Shangri-La II Kids Club is also returning for the 2013 season. Jessica Dunham and her group create a lot of fun and allow the kids to use their imagination during the intermissions at the track. Jessica is currently looking for weekly sponsors for the Kids Club. The sponsors will be announced throughout the night at the track. It is a great way to promote your business or race team while giving back to the youngsters and helping create the next generation of race fans and perhaps drivers.
