Get Driver Autographs This Week
IZOD IndyCar Series Drivers Signing Autographs All Over the Southern Tier
By: WGI Staff on 6/30/2010
Getting autographs from drivers like 2008 CWGP champion Ryan Hunter-Reay will not be a difficult thing to do this weekend.
Marco Andretti, driver of the No. 26 for Andretti Autosport, will be available for autographs at the P & C Food and Pharmacy store in Watkins Glen from 6:00pm-7:00pm on Thursday, July 1. Andretti is the grandson to legendary driver Mario Andretti and son of another racing legend, Michael Andretti. Marco has finished fifth for three straight Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen and will be looking to find his way to Gatorade Victory Lane for the first time in 2010.
Team Penske drivers Helio Castroneves, Ryan Briscoe, and Will Power will be available for autographs at the Verizon Kiosk located inside the Arnot Mall from 6:30pm-7:30pm on Friday, July 2. Castroneves is a three-time Indianapolis 500 race winner, three-time Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen Pole Sitter, and the 2009 champion of the hit ABC television show “Dancing With The Stars.” Power is currently leading the IZOD Indycar Series in points with two wins and four poles this season. Last but not least, Briscoe has claimed the pole for each of the last two Camping World Grand Prix and currently holds the qualifying record at the legendary road course. Team Penske is looking to translate their strong qualifying efforts at The Glen into success as they have won the pole in all five IZOD IndyCar Series races at WGI but have yet to taste victory.
