Race fans that have been swept-up in “Danicamania” and are looking for a cure need not look any further than Watkins Glen International and the 6th Annual Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen, July 2-4.
The racing world has been abuzz since the stock car debut of IZOD IndyCar Series star Danica Patrick at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 6. Race fans that have been swept-up in “Danicamania” and are looking for a cure need not look any further than Watkins Glen International and the 6th Annual Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen, July 2-4. Not only will Patrick and all of the stars of the IZOD IndyCar Series challenge the twists and turns of The Glen but fans will be able to get up-close-and-personal with all of them during the popular driver autograph session or by purchasing a garage pass. There is no better way in the Northeastern part of the United States to get this type of access to some of the top names in motorsports.
The drivers of the IZOD IndyCar Series have become well-known for their accessibility during event weekends and the series’ annual stop at the Soul of American Road Racing will be no different. All drivers including the aforementioned Patrica and Indianapolis 500 champions Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti, and Helio Castronevs will take part in a hour-long autograph session at WGI and admission to it is included in the price of admission. No extra passes need to be purchased to meet your favorite driver, get an autograph, and even a picture. Do you want more access so that you can get closer to the action? Purchase a garage pass for only $50 and stand only feet away from the cars as teams make final adjustments in preparation for practice, qualifying, and the race. This is also a great way to get any autographs you might have missed and provides plenty of opportunities to take pictures any race fan will treasure. Garage passes are limited so fans are encouraged to order theirs today.
