Fans of the original Shangri-la Speedway and Chemung Speedrome will be treated to a night of nostalgia as part of this year's running of the Rod Spalding Classic for the Race of Champions Modified Series, as former drivers, car owners, and officials from both facilities will gather  for a "Racers Reunion" at the Chemung Speedrome on August 2nd, 2019.

In addition to a full card of racing, the night's festivities will include a meet and greet/autograph session with past drivers, antique car displays, and a silent memorabilia auction with proceeds benefiting the Spalding Foundation. The Foundation will also be publishing a commemorative event program that will be available for purchase throughout the night.

Drivers, fans, and officials from Shangri-la and Chemung who wish to contribute to the Racers Reunion with former driver contact information, donations for the silent auction, or for sponsorship opportunities are encouraged to contact Spalding Foundation director Betty Sherwood at or by phone at (607)687-2991.

Visit our Confirmed Guests and Event Sponsors page for additional info. Gate times, admission prices, and other general information will be released soon.
