Post Card from NASCAR at Watkins Glen

Howdy Ya’ll!

A truly excellent weekend was spent at Watkins Glen for this year’s NASCAR – Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity Series and K&N Series East.

Here’s some pix:

Day 1 at Station 5A in Turn 5 – exit of the Bus Stop

Favorite car of the day: #6 Sunoco K&N Series East Toyota Camry

Runner up favorite car… this Toyopet sponsored old body that almost won the race.

Day 2 and 3, moved to Station 2 in Turn 2 start of the Esses.

Fantastic view, even closer to the track!

Preview of my next event in Atlantic City, New Jersey

Monster came thru big time, visiting the RSI campground and giving out tons of freebie drinks to the marshals. Thanks Monster!

I like how close US and Canada is at this event, with plenty of Canadian marshals (and many fans) represented, as well as Canadian anthem being sung before each of the races.

Had such a wonderful time working with Barb an awesome marshal.

Hey! I’ve seen this car before… had Photographer credentials.

This fella almost ran over my tent backing that thing up… Ugh!

Awesome sunny day for race day on Sunday! And it was one of the most un-NASCAR-like races I’ve ever seen at the Glen!

Even in town everyone was enjoying the NASCAR spirit… visited Bleachers for dinner whom were very #2 Brand K-ski themed, giving out free Miller Lite’s and I even got lucky with a giveaway hat.

More to come in a debrief…

Cheez-It 355 NASCAR at Watkins Glen New York Sprint Cup, Xfinity Series and K&N East Stock Cars

Fourth weekend in a row volunteering, the morning after arriving home from Europe I was on the road again driving Upstate New York to work NASCAR at Watkins Glen International.

Despite what people say about NASCAR, it is one of the most amazing racing series out there especially when they hit the track on a proper circuit (not a speedway). The sound of 40 cars going past you (just a few feet away) at full blast is incredible!

RSI was awesome with station assignments for me, letting me work Turn 5 at the entry to the Bus Stop the first day, Turn 10 the last turn before the Start/Finish on Saturday and Turn 1a after the Ninety and before the Esses on race day. I was blessed!

We had action, we had fun. It was awesome.
