Most Un-NASCAR-Like Race at Watkins Glen the debrief

Greetings from the Glen! It’s NASCAR weekend and while the camp sites and the grand stands were all completely full (sold out some claimed) it was hard to believe that these were NASCAR races… Why? Because every driver, in each of the three series racing this weekend drove so professionally. It was a little hard […]

Post Card from the Infield of NASCAR at Watkins Glen

So of all the years I’ve been doing NASCAR at Watkins Glen this was a first for me… Being able to check out the infield and all (some) of the insanity (cool shit!) it has to offer! I was fortunate my friends from New Jersey came for the race, using one of my guest passes […]

Post Card from NASCAR (Sprint, Xfinity & K&N East) at Watkins Glen International

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 […]
