(Tioga Center, NY) It has been a see-saw battle with the elements the past few weeks, After just sliding in the race one week ago before the rains started, The Concrete Castle fell victim to unfavorable weather conditions once again. “Five rainouts in one year is a lot” said track and event manager, Amy Culver. “We lost opening day to rain, and then two of the last three weeks – we are hoping we have paid our dues, and we have a beautiful weekend for The Fall Brawl”. With Season Championship night raining out, the points ended as of the last event on September 7th. Gene Purvis had clinched the Four Cylinder Stock title on September 7th, his first at the ASA Member facility after amassing nine feature wins. Young rookie, Nick Morich finished second in the Four Cylinder Stock points and Jeremiah Clonch finished third.



Persistent intermittent showers, cold temperatures and cold strong winds have forced Shangri-La II Motorspeedway to cancel their evenings activities. The next event for the speedway is The Fall Brawl on September 27-29.


The pre-registration deadline for the Fifth Annual Fall Brawl is THIS Friday September 20th.


The pre-registration prices are for the car only. Pre-registration can not only save the team money on the race day pricing, but will allow the speedway management evaluate the expected field and possibly increase the purse in each class.


Car Entry Fees are as follows: RoC Modifieds - $45.00 up to September 20th, $80.00 after September 20th. Late Models - $ 45.00 up to September 20th, $80.00 after September 20th. Sportsman Modifieds - $ 35.00 up to September 20th, $60.00 after September 20th. Street Stocks - $ 30.00 up to September 20th, $50.00 after September 20th. IMCA Modifieds - $ 20.00 before September 20th, $30.00 after September 20th. Four Cylinder Stocks - $20.00 before September 20th, $30.00 after September 20th.
