Live Chats Resume with Boris Said
Watkins Glen International will resume the LIVE driver chats on the WGI Fan Talk Forum on Wednesday, July 16th and will get things started with a Glen champion and true fan favorite. 2006 Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen champion and current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Boris Said will be the first featured guest and will be available for fans questions from 7:30 PM - 8:00 PM.
This is the first of four 30-minute live chats that will feature drivers from the NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide and Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series leading up to the Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 7-10. The first chat will feature Boris Said on July 16th and the second chat will feature Grand-Am Rolex Series star Scott Pruett on July 23rd. The third and fourth chats will feature drivers from the NASCAR Sprint Cup or NASCAR Nationwide Series on July 30th and August 6th.
Boris Said's popularity at The Glen is well documented. His fan club, the famed "Said Heads" originated at The Soul of American Road Racing. Members are easily distinguishable by the large wigs they wear to pay tribute to the hair-do of their favorite driver. Said has met with a great deal of success at The Glen in several series including the NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide and Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. His record at The Glen is made up of numerous Top-10 finishes including his victory in the 2006 Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. He pulled double-duty during last year's Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend and this year fans should expect him to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Centurion Boats at The Glen and NASCAR Nationwide Series Zippo 200 during the event weekend, August 7-10.
Tickets for the remaining events during the historic 60th Anniversary of racing in Watkins Glen are on-sale now! The next marquee event is the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey's Fancy New York's Artisan Cheese, July 18-20. The racing action continues when the stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide Series return for the Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 7-10.
