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.

Race day we had full stoppage right in front of us due to a big incident in the Bus Stop.

Another fantastic weekend… my fourth in a row volunteering and first on American soil after three weeks in Europe.

Some say the two couldn’t be different. Yet to me the crowds of European spectators were quite similar to American ones even when the racing was completely different.

Watkins Glen is a perfect racetrack to host NASCAR and the fans never disappoint. The weather was perfect, the station assignments were great, and the company I was in was absolutely excellent!

I had such an awesome time!
