Shangri-La II Motorspeedway announces the cancellation of our program of pavement racing at the half mile concrete oval on Saturday, June 23, 2012. "We have had a lot of calls regarding this program" states track manager, Amy Stilson. "It is high school graduation weekend, and we have a lot of graduations of track workers, workers children and grandchildren, and of our competitors. Skyview Drags is receiving the same calls we are, so they too have cancelled their program. There will not be any racing on "Rumble Ridge" the weekend of June 23rd."
This cancellation means the Sportsman, Street Stock and Pudgie's Pizza 4 Cylinder Stock races are not planned to be re-scheduled. The Modifieds however, ARE being rescheduled for Saturday, July 14th on Racin' Rumble Ridge Night. The Modifieds will join the Late Models, Sportsman, Street Stocks and Pudgie's Pizza 4 Cylinder Stocks in a big, five division show.
Night of Nitro!
This program will run in conjunction with one of the biggest shows to ever be put together at Skyview Drags as for the first time ever in their six year history, Skyview Drags will have the Top Fuel Dragsters as their featured attraction for their second annual Chad Wilcox Memorial night.

June 9 - Mother Nature was the only winner on Saturday night at the speedway. Persistent and spotty showers, thunderstorms and outright torrential downpours in the surrounding communities coupled with a forecast for more of the same forced the hand of track management to cancel the event at the ASA Member track. "We have a fair amount of competitors towing long distances to reach our facility" states track manager, Amy Stilson. "We know the economy is tough and with the conditions like we had on Saturday and the forecast for the remainder of the evening, we can help save the teams and fans the expense on fuel by making the difficult decision to cancel early this time. This program is lost to the elements, and will not be made up". This rainout comes after four weeks of competition are in the books for the Sportsman, Street Stocks and Pudgie's Pizza Four Cylinder Stocks.
