Watkins Glen International has signed a multi-year deal with Cheez-It crackers to sponsor the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at the Finger Lakes track.
In quiet moments _ and there aren't many in the world of auto racing _ Michael Printup often marvels at this juncture of his professional life: a Seneca Indian overseeing a historic race track by the shores of Seneca Lake.
Watkins Glen International is ready for any kind of weather.
Marcos Ambrose should be on pins and needles. He says he's not.
Tony Stewart figures he's driven more than 20 types of race cars in his career. He's about to try another, and it just might be the ride of his life.
Flanked by an array of unique vehicles, Bob Gillespie stood in the chilly morning air at Watkins Glen International and spelled out the rules in a drivers' meeting like no other at the famed road course.
The IndyCar Series is not returning to Watkins Glen International next season.
"We've seen a great renewal (of ticket buying)," Printup said of fans deciding to return to the track. "We have the highest renewal of all 12 ISC tracks, and we obviously give credit to the great racing."
Printup, who has watched older Cup cars compete in SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) races on the long course without problems, said NASCAR president Mike Helton was concerned that a mostly flat left turn in the Boot would lead to too many cautions if it wasn't properly banked.
