Kwik Fill Red Apple is not only the official convenience store of WGI but will have an on-site store during the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at THe Glen event weekend.
“Kwik Fill is excited to be a partner this year with Watkins Glen. We are looking forward to servicing our current loyal customer base in addition to showcasing our in-store products and services to the thousands of brand loyal NASCAR fans throughout the weekend. We invite all those in attendance to also stop by our Kwik Fill Fan zone to sample a variety of products, register to win a custom Kwik Fill/7UP Smart car and Kwik Fill merchandise,” stated Cliff Brazie, director of merchandising at Kwik Fill.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Kwik Fill Red Apple especially since our fans will greatly benefit from the presence of their on-site convenience store,” said Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International. “Our fans have been asking for this service to be provided over the last several years and I have no doubt that Kwik Fill Red Apple will exceed their expectations. This, combined with the Camping World store, will allow our campers to pick-up any items they need or have forgotten without ever leaving the track.”
The new Kwik Fill Red Apple on-site store will have a wide range of goods that fans and campers needed during a fun-filled weekend at The Glen. The list includes, but is not limited to, ice, charcoal, sunscreen, toiletries, first aide items, sunscreen, soda, and much more. The hours of operations will be 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM on Thursday, August 5, and then 7:00 Am – 10:00 PM Friday, Saturday and Sunday 7:00AM – 5:00PM. Times are subject to change and fans are encouraged to visit the store for any updates.
In addition to the new Kwik Fill Red Apple, Camping World will once again have their tent open for campers and the combination of both locations should allow fans to find anything they may have forgotten at home or need to make the weekend more enjoyable. Fans will also find a variety of food vendors throughout the track including the ever popular Domino’s Pizza and Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.
