In the aftermath of the events that occurred during Saturday night’s NASCAR Nationwide Victory Lane celebration, Watkins Glen International is setting up a unique program to give back to the arts.  To promote our soon-to-be-announced relationship with acclaimed artist Sam Bass, any fan that brings a new or used musical instrument to the WGI ticket office, located on the corner of Old Bronson Hill Road and Route 16, can purchase a ticket to the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at a discounted price, and receive an autographed Sam Bass-commissioned event poster.

Sam Bass has been painting images of NASCAR racing for over 25 years.  He not only designed the Gibson guitar presented at Nashville Superspeedway, but has created the artwork for the 2009 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen event program. 

All instruments collected through the drive will be donated to local music organizations and local schools for use in their music departments. 

Tickets for the entire 2009 season at Watkins Glen International are on sale now!  The IndyCar Series will return to the Soul of American Road Racing for the 5th Annual Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen weekend, July 3-5.  Celebrate the fourth of July with Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti and all the stars of the IndyCar Series, rock-out to the Presidents of the United States of America, and enjoy one of the largest firework shows in Western New York.  Tickets start at just $55 and general admission for kids 12 and under is FREE!  The stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series take on the twists and turns of WGI on their traditional weekend in the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen, August 6-9.  The weekend will also feature racing from the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series.  For tickets and information, please contact the Watkins Glen International ticket office at 866-461-RACE or log on to the official Watkins Glen International website at www.TheGlen.com.
