WATKINS GLEN, NY (August 9, 2012) – Will the Finger Lakes 355 at The Glen weekend be your first taste of NASCAR racing? Make sure to visit the NASCAR 101 interactive tent located in the Midway near the Pyramid during the August 9-12 weekend. The NASCAR 101 tent will be open Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Speak with fan ambassadors who will be available to explain the scoring system, potential race strategies, what a pit crew really does and much more. Also, test your driving skills on one of our simulators for a chance to win Gatorade Victory Lane passes. Those passes will be awarded each afternoon to the top performers.
If you think you have learned it all (or already know it all), take the 101 quiz and enter to win Pit Tour passes and Pre-Race wristbands for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Finger Lakes 355 at The Glen. Winners will be drawn every hour.
A grand-prize winner of the 101 quiz entrees will win tickets to the 2013 Finger Lakes 355 at The Glen.
