“We are beyond excited and ready to welcome NASCAR back to Watkins Glen International and the beautiful Finger Lakes Region,” WGI President Michael Printup said. “Our dedicated team has worked hard over the past few months in making sure the competitors, teams and fans can safely enjoy our world-class facility for the future. I know our fans can‘t wait for NASCAR to make its return to The Glen in what has become a summer tradition for over 30 years.”
