Following a very successful debut in 2007, Watkins Glen International is returning to the Big Apple to partake in the LeMay - America's Car Museum® display of HERITAGE & HORSEPOWER at the 2008 New York International Auto Show in the Jacob Javits Convention Center. The Glen's display will feature the #14 ABC Supply A.J. Foyt Enterprises IndyCar® Series car and will be open to the public March 21-23. Fans that miss their chance to see an actual Indy car should plan on catching the entire IndyCar Series during the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen, July 4-6.
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with the LeMay Museum last year and had a great experience at the New York International Auto Show," said Craig Rust, president of Watkins Glen International. "This is a great opportunity to showcase the excitement that will take place during the 4th of July weekend when the IndyCar Series returns to The Glen."
This will be the second year in a row that The Glen has joined in the HERITAGE & HORSEPOWER exhibit. The #14 ABC Supply A.J. Foyt Enterprises IndyCar Series car will be the most technologically advanced car in the entire exhibit and will be driven by IndyCar Series veteran Darren Manning during the 2008 season. The display will be open for a sneak peak on March 21 from 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM. The display will officially open to the general public on March 22 from 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM and again on March 23 from 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. The entire HERITAGE & HORSEPOWER exhibit will showcase iconic classics as well as cars from the Grand-Am and IndyCar Series and will be located on the Lower Level, Hall 1-E.
