Watkins Glen International and WNGZ 104.9 FM have paired up to provide fans the best way to watch the 53rd Running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 20. The legendary road course and classic rock station, the new Motor Racing Network (MRN) affiliate for the Twin Tiers, invite race fans of all ages to celebrate the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season at the Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar located at 1631 County Route 64, Horseheads, NY. The party starts at 12:30 pm and goes until the checkered flag falls; admission is FREE for fans of all ages.
Hanging with members of the WGI staff, the high speed action on the banks of Daytona International Speedway (DIS), and great food of Buffalo Wild Wings are not the only reasons this party is a can’t miss event for any race fan. The party will be highlighted by food and drink specials as well as a large number of contests and giveaways. The prizes include pieces of the asphalt racing surface from DIS, Zippo lighters, Budweiser souvenirs compliments of Seneca Beverage Company, numerous autographed items from drivers such as fan favorite Dale Earnhardt, Jr., defending Daytona 500 champion Jamie McMurray, Brian Vickers, and much more. The Heluva Good! show car, 2011 Chevrolet Camaro pace car, and WGI Toyota Tundra show truck will all be on display to further add to the racing atmosphere. Not enough? Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International, will provide a live update from the infield of DIS via a Skype video connection immediately following pre-race ceremonies to share his thoughts on “The Great American Race” before NASCAR’s best take the green flag.
