 (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.

             Officials from Shangri-La II Motorspeedway and The Race of Champions Pavement Modified Series were forced to postpone The RoC-N-Concrete Rumble Returns event from Sunday July 28th to next Sunday August 4th due to inclement weather. With this change to the 2013 schedule, track management has made the decision to cancel the regularly scheduled event on Saturday August 3rd.

            Racing is scheduled to take the green flag at 5:30 pm which is a little later than the postponed show was scheduled to start. “We’re going into August, and the afternoon sun in the grandstands can be uncomfortable” says track owner, George Swansbrough. “Hopefully with a little later start the grandstands and pits will be on a cooling trend. We should be able to have an enjoyable program and get everyone headed home at a decent hour”. The Pit Gates will open at 1:30 pm. Grandstand Gates open and Hot Laps will begin at 3:30 pm. Racing starts at 5:30 pm. The Shangri-La II Wristband discount will not be available for this event.
