NASCAR's best road racing, Watkins Glen (home of road racing) is situated in New York's Fingerlakes region, wine country. Whether camping or coming for the day, come to this excellent track for great racing,a great time, and much to do in the area.

Hi, Deanna. What would you like to know about this attraction? How soon will the Drive the Glen season scheduled for this year be posted? we are planning a camping trip in August to do the wineries and thought as NASCAR fans this would be a great thing to do as well.

Another camping question. I've tent camped at Sebring and Road Atlanta, thinking about the IMSA at The Glen for'17. Do I wanna camp the weekend? Or just infield/tailgate Sat and Sun and sleep off-site? Thanks in advance!
