SHANGRI-LA II LOSES SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT TO WEATHER
(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.
