Watkins Glen International will host its fourth LIVE Grand-Am driver chat on the WGI Fan Talk Forum on Wednesday, May 30th and will welcome one of the top names in racing history. Legendary driver Hurley Haywood will be the featured guest and will be available for fans questions and comments from 7:30 PM - 8:00 PM. The most recent chat with Will Nonnamaker and Joe Sahlen started at 7:30 PM and ran until just after 8:00 PM. This made it the third consecutive live chat to run over the scheduled 30 minutes.

Hurley Haywood is recognized as one of the finest drivers in racing history. He has made his mark at The Glen over the course of his illustrious career by claiming an incredible 7 victories at the historic road course. Watkins Glen International is a significant part to Haywood's career not just because of his victories but also because he made his pro racing debut during the 1969 Six Hours of The Glen. His list of racing accomplishments is impressive to say the least and stands up against any driver, past or present. He is a 5-time winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona, a 3-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, was the first driver to win the 24 Hours of Daytona and 24 Hours of Le Mans in the same year and is the only driver to repeat as winner of both races in the same year. Haywood is competing in the Daytona Prototypes this year and is the co-driver of the No. 59 Brumos Racing Porsche Fabcar with teammate JC France. Fans can expect to see both drivers in the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen, June 8-10, and during the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series race during the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series at The Glen weekend, August 9-12.
