WATKINS GLEN, NY – Renewal customers of Watkins Glen International received a unique thank you in their mailboxes this week. “Follow Me to The Glen” car or window decals were sent to all fans that chose to renew tickets for any of the 2012 events prior to the November 14 deadline. The sticker, not only provides these treasured fans to display their support of our historic road course, it gives them the chance to win.
Throughout the season members of the WGI team will keep an eye out for the sticker. If one is spotted on a car that fan will receive a personal ‘Thank You’ and piece of Glen memorabilia. Prizes distributed range from t-shirts, hats and programs to autographed merchandise, pre-race ceremonies, victory lane and cold pit access during GRAND-AM, Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen (June 29-July1), NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen (August 9-12), and Glenora U.S. Vintage Grand Prix presented by Welliver event weekends (Sept. 7-9).
In addition, renewal customers received an incentive to encourage their friends and family to join them in 2012. New fans who start an account and purchase tickets and mention the existing account number of their referring friend, provide that friend with a $10 coupon for food at the track during any of our events including the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese (July 13-15).
Fans are encouraged to apply their stickers to their vehicles as soon as possible so The Glen street team and Fan Ambassadors are able to identify you and fellow fans can follow you here. In addition to keeping an eye out for vehicles sporting a “Follow Me To The Glen,” keep an eye on WGI’s official Twitter (@WGI) and Facebook (Facebook.com/watkinsgleninternational) pages.
