Watkins Glen International


Get ready to start your engines! Racing in Watkins Glen began in 1948, and, although these roots are in Formula 1, the town and its track have also seen open-wheel, sports, and stock-car racing. Indeed, today Watkins Glen International hosts the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, among other events. You can even follow in the tracks of great racers on the Drive the Glen Experience, which features two 3.4-mile laps behind a pace car.
