Shangri-La II Motor Speedway, Pocono
Raceway Team Up For Major Ticket Promotion
Short Track Fans Can Win Tickets to July Pocono Races
Series PR Report

Shangri-La II Motor Speedway, the northeast's newest and finest short track, and the world famous Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., have joined forces for the 2010 racing season, centered around the July 3-4 Great American Classic two-day racing weekend at Shangri-La II. As part of that event, drawings will be held for 100 general admission tickets to the Saturday, July 31 doubleheader at Pocono featuring the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards as well as the first appearance at the "Tricky Triangle" by the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Grand Prize in the promotion will be a Pocono race weekend package including four tickets to the July 31 ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards/NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event and four reserved seat tickets in Row 30 of the Terrace Grandstand for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race on Sunday, August 1, plus one night's accommodation at the Howard Johnson in Bartonsville, Pa., conveniently located on I-80 east of the track. The drawings will take place at Shangri-La II on Sunday, July 4, and the winners need not be present provided they have registered in person at a Shangri-La II racing event.

"We're delighted to be able to partner with Pocono Raceway for several reasons," remarked Shangri-La II track manager Amy Stilson. "It will give many of our fans a chance to experience Pocono's superspeeday first hand, and hopefully lead a contingent from Pocono to see what the Concrete Castle has to offer in short track action.

"There's another characteristic the two tracks have in common," she added. "Almost 40 years ago Dr, Joe and Dr. Rose Mattioli opened Pocono Raceway against the odds. Now their track is a racing icon, and it's still operated by their family. That's exactly what George Swansbrough and his team have set out to accomplish here at Shangri-La II."

Fans may sign up for their chance at the Pocono ticket package at any Shangri-La II racing event preceding the drawing, including July 4. The season opens with the Concrete Duals on Saturday, May 1 and continues every week leading up to the Great American Classic on July 3-4 with the exception of June 19, which is a scheduled open date.
