WATKINS GLEN, NY – Watkins Glen International is proud to welcome back Tim Dugger as the headliner for the Red Cat Summer Stage Concert on Friday night of the Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen weekend. The Zac Brown Tribute Band will make their third appearance at The Glen as the opening act for the concert set to take place Friday, August 8 at 7:30 p.m., following the Bully Hill Vineyards 125 K&N Series race.
“Tim Dugger is a huge hit with our fans! It might even be fair to say that he has created his own WGI following,” stated Michael Printup, President of Watkins Glen International. “The Red Cat Summer Stage continues to be an added bonus for our fans and the nonstop weekend excitement leading up to the Cheez-It™ 355 race on Sunday.”
Tim Dugger first appeared at The Glen as the headliner for the 2013 Red Cat Summer Stage Concert, where he was very well received by fans.

Born and raised in Alabama, Tim Dugger grew up in a family deeply rooted in country values and began singing gospel music at the tender age of seven. Continuing his passion for music, Tim formed multiple bands and continued performing as a teen. A die-hard NASCAR fan, Dugger began performing in bars and clubs near popular race-tracks. Eventually the friendships and connections made through these shows led to a record deal with Sidewalk Records. Tim has performed with a variety of popular country artist such as Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Sara Evans, and Diamond Rio. His current single “You Know Who We Are” has become a popular request on Sirius XM’s The Highway and is available for download on iTunes.
Opening the Red Cat Summer Stage Concert, the Zac Brown Tribute Band (ZBTB) is considered the nation’s premier Zac Brown tribute band and the only 7-piece tribute band in the country.
