Officials of Shangri-La II Motor Speedway have announced that the Memorial Day Madness event next weekend has been consolidated into a one-day, five-class program on Sunday, May 30. Originally a two-day event was envisioned at the ASA Member Track, but the heavy racing schedule around the region on the first holiday weekend of the season meant the change was in the interest of all parties.
"We've all had our share of weather issues in May, and Shangri-La II has been more fortunate than most tracks," said track manager Amy Stilson. " We owe it to our fans, our race teams, and our sponsors to present the best possible product, and we saw that a Sunday-only event was the best way to achieve that," she added.
Dear Shangri-La II Race Fans:
Thank you for your fantastic support of our "ROC'n Concrete Rumble" last Sunday. The Race of Champions really put Shangri-La II on the map as a major track for big-time modified racing. The Pit Party was a great success and I can't say enough about your cooperation in clearing the pit area when requested to do so.
Of course there were some glitches and one of them was with the 50-50 drawing for $1003. We did not have a winner from the first number drawn and when we announced the second number in victory lane most fans were on their way to the parking lot.
