Cup Series Veteran and Glen Champion Robby Gordon Will Follow on August 8th
Watkins Glen International will host its next LIVE driver chat on the WGI Fan Talk Forum on Wednesday, August 1st and will welcome one of the top rookies on the NASCAR Busch Series. Raybestos Rookie of the Year candidate Marcos Ambrose will be the next featured guest and will be available for fans questions from 7:30 PM - 8:00 PM.
This is the third of four 30-minute live chats that will feature drivers from the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup, NASCAR Busch and Grand-Am Roles Sports Car Series leading up to the Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 9-12. The last live chat will feature NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series driver and Glen champion Robby Gordon on Wednesday, August 8th.
All of these live chats are open to any and all race fans that go to the WGI Fan Talk Forum or the WGI homepage (www.TheGlen.com). A link to the live chat will become available to all visitors at about 7:20 PM and will be active for the entire chat.
Marcos Ambrose is quickly asserting himself as an up and coming driver on the NASCAR Busch Series. The native Australian has had a solid run this season that includes 3 Top-10's and currently sits 10th in the season points. This makes Ambrose the second highest ranked rookie in the NASCAR Busch Series behind only NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series regular David Ragan. Ambrose will challenge the twists and turns of The Glen not once but twice during the Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 9-12. He will drive the #59 Kingsford/Aussie Vineyards Ford Fusion for Wood Brothers/JTG Racing in the NASCAR Busch Series Zippo 200 and also attempt to qualify for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Centurion Boats at The Glen.
One of New York State's largest weekend spectator sporting event returns August 9-12 with the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series taking center stage on Sunday in the much-anticipated Centurion Boats at The Glen. The NASCAR Busch Series is back for a third straight year to compete in the Zippo 200 on Saturday and the stars of the Rolex Sports Car Series take to the track on Friday night. Weekend tickets start at only $80 and are still available. A complete weekend schedule can be found on www.TheGlen.com.
