“I have had the chance to get to know some of our Ambassadors since we started this program, and they love to help out during our busy weekends,” stated Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International. “Not only do we consider them to be an extension of our team, but our Ambassadors make a real difference…and they get to have a whole lot of fun!”
Fan Ambassadors will have the chance to enjoy a variety of incentives, including, but not limited to: weekend admission to WGI events, being among the first to know exciting track news, WGI event polo, and other special events.

It’s no wonder that I am anxiously looking forward to another season at The Glen as a Fan Ambassador!”
