WGI Adds New Paddock Tailgating for Fans During Cheez-ItTM 355 at The Glen Weekend
As an exclusive offer, each Pit Terrace seat will also receive a free FanVision rental. FanVision is also available for every ticket holder at an additional cost.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – Watkins Glen International is known for remarkable tailgating and this season’s Cheez-ItTM 355 at The Glen continues that tradition. WGI announced it is launching a NEW tailgate area for race fans, The Paddock Tailgate Park. Located in the North Paddock area, the Paddock Tailgate Park overlooks the existing Turn 1 Tailgate area behind the Pit Terrace Grandstand on the infield.
“It is all about the fans at WGI and we know that our fans love to camp and tailgate,” stated Michael Printup, President of Watkins Glen International. “I have had the chance to personally meet a few of our tailgaters each year during the NASCAR weekend and I know they will be thrilled with this new section.”
For $250, customers purchasing Paddock Tailgate Park will receive one vehicle pass and 10 wristbands for guests to enter the new tailgate area. Track admission is sold separately. Each spot is paved and measures 15 x 40 feet. Paddock Tailgate Park will be open Friday through Sunday 8 a.m. until one hour after on-track activity ends. There is no camping or overnight parking in Paddock Tailgate Park.
Paddock Tailgate Park fans are encouraged to take advantage of seats in the Pit Terrace Grandstand. Each adult Pit Terrace seat will receive a free FanVision rental. FanVision is a handheld device that provides in-venue content for fans at Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen. With FanVision, race fans can enjoy live at-track broadcasting, up to eight in-car cameras, audio and video instant replays and much more! FanVision rentals are available for fans throughout the facility at an additional cost.
Located within five (5) hours (~300 miles) of 25% of the US population, Watkins Glen International is the premier road racing facility in the United States.
