Watkins Glen International Raceway

The historic and legendary Watkins Glen International (nicknamed "The Glen") is located near Watkins Glen, New York at the southern tip at Seneca Lake. It was long known around the world as the home of the United States Grand Prix, which it hosted for 20 consecutive years (1961-1980), but it has been home to road racing of nearly every class for over 50 years, including: Sports Car Club of America, (SCCA) NASCAR Busch/Nationwide Series, Formula Libre, Formula One, Can-Am, Trans-Am, Formula 5000, International Race of Champions, (IROC) Champ Car, NASCAR Winston/Nextel/Sprint Cup Series, World Sportscar Championship and Indy Racing League. The 3.4 mile Long Course at Watkins Glen features 11 distinctive turns including the dramatic uphill Esses, the inner loop, the carousel and the famous "boot." Three long straights including the incredibly fast back straight provide plenty of opportunity to put the "hammer down."

Watkins Glen International is located amidst the rolling hills of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, providing a unique contrast between the sights and sounds of racing and the scenic beauty of majestic farmland. Natural wonders, unique attractions and some of the world's finest wine can all be found within the Finger Lakes region, an exciting area known for its ever-changing landscape patterns. Traveling even the shortest of distances will find dramatic variations in scenery, which can range from forested hills and rugged mountains to fertile farmland and meandering streams. Nestled at the southern tip of Seneca Lake, the largest of the five Finger Lakes, Watkins Glen is strategically located to allow access to several major metropolitan markets including Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester and Binghamton. Explore the history and unspoiled beauty of the lake country's quiet villages, dynamic nightlife, culture, shopping and sophistication of the cities, while enjoying one of the most famous and thrilling road courses in the world. It's all available and easy to reach in the wonderful Finger Lakes region. (Insert Track Map)
