(Tioga Center, NY) The management of Shangri-La II Motorspeedway in Tioga Center, NY has just announced that they are opening up their rules for the remaining three regular races on the 2013 schedule. The Sportsman and Street Stocks will now be able to follow the Shangri-La II or Race of Champions rule packages for the August 31, September 7 and September 14th events. “We wanted to open up the rules so race teams could come and start getting ready for the Fall Brawl” said track owner, George Swansbrough. Any cars that are new to the speedway or have not supported the facility in 2013 will race for and be paid for the spots they finish in with no points awarded. The points will be structured so those who have supported the speedway and are locked in points battles will not be affected by the rules change. The technical inspection team will be closely scrutinizing the cars. They will be enforcing a Shangri-La II rule that if you are caught cheating; you will forfeit any winnings for that event.
Racing continues at Shangri-La II Motorspeedway on Saturday August 31th for Labor Day On Fire Night. The race teams will be competing for Double Points. There will be a Party In The Pits with a Bonfire following the races, and it is open to racers, fans and officials. Pit Gates open at 4:30 pm, Grandstand Gate opens and Practice begins at 5:30 pm with racing beginning at 7:00 pm. Grandstand Admission is just $5.00 for ages 12 and above. Admission is free for ages under 12. Pit admission is $ 30.00 with a Shangri-La II or RoC license or $35.00 without a Shangri-La II or RoC license.
