Taylor Brothers Make Pit Stop in ‘The Grove’
Jordon will be Taming the Mullet for Charity; Ricky and Jordan participate in Fan Q&A
The Grove will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9am until one hour following the checkered flag each day. Both brothers are also expected to participate in a fan question and answer session on Saturday.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – Watkins Glen International is excited to announce Ricky and Jordan Taylor of Wayne Taylor Racing will be participating in a few events happening in The Grove during Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, June 26-29. Jordan Taylor announced last week following his May 31st victory that he will be cutting off the signature mullet he has been cultivating since January of 2013 and is looking to raise $10,000 for charity in support of his new look. Both brothers are also expected to participate in a fan question and answer session on Saturday.
The Grove is a new fan hospitality chalet located on the infield (inside of the track) adjacent to the garage near the pedestrian bridge. The Grove will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9am until one hour following the checkered flag each day.
“These guys have great personalities, and the team is a real contender for the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship,” stated Michael Printup, President of Watkins Glen International. “We can’t wait to see the Taylor brothers interacting with our fans in The Grove. It should be a lot of fun!”
The Taylor brothers drive for their family-owned Wayne Taylor racing and claimed a first place finish at the 2014 Chevrolet Sports Car Classic on the Raceway at Belle Isle in downtown Detroit, along with multiple runner-up finishes in the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Series. The Taylor brother’s current season success has placed them in the lead for the 2014 championship.
Ricky and Jordan Taylor will both be available during the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen to assist with an exclusive Q&A at WGI’s upgraded fan hospitality area, The Grove. Admission to The Grove is only $95 if purchased before the event weekend and increases to $110 during race week. It is important to note that race gate admission tickets are NOT INCLUDED with the purchase of camping or fan hospitality upgrades. Access to all midway, camping and/or hospitality areas requires a gate admission ticket. Driver participation is subject to change and without notice. Neither IMSA nor any of its affiliates are sponsors of this promotion.
In addition to assisting with an exclusive Q&A, Jordan Taylor is expected to cut his signature mullet for charity during the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen weekend. Fans can purchase raffle tickets online to win two weekend paddock access tickets for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, behind-the-scenes tours of the Wayne Taylor Racing and Corvette Racing paddock setups, a ride in a Continental Tire two-seater DP, and the chance to help cut off Jordan Taylor’s mullet. The runner-up will receive a set of Continental Tires, with all proceeds to benefit Camp Boggy Creek and Camp Anokijig. With a goal of raising $10,000 to be split between the two charities, tickets start at $25 and will be drawn June 20.
