This website is an online resource for Nascar enthusiasts, so if you have a great picture of Watkins Glen International, send it to us for inclusion here.
Watkins Glen International, affectionately known as “The Glen” is located at the southern tip of Seneca Lake, near Watkins Glen, New York. It was internationally known as the home of the United States Grand Prix, which it hosted 1961–1980, but it has been home to road racing of nearly every class for over 50 years.
Watkins Glen International is one of only two road courses on the Sprint Cup Circuit (the other being Infineon). The 11-turn course challenges participants to turn right at key points.
