WGI offers free camping for Six Hours of The Glen
One of the most affordable and family friendly events on the Watkins Glen International schedule is just a bit more accessible. The Glen announced Free camping is available for Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen, where Kids and Teens 18 and under are already free. Known for its unlimited access this GRAND-AM event weekend is now even more of a not-to-be missed event.
"Value is King in this economy," Watkins Glen International track president Michael Printup said. "Families look for the ideal staycation and there is no better introduction to the professional world of motorsports world than NASCAR's GRAND-AM Road Racing Series."
The free camping offer is good for the Gate 1 Camping section, located a short distance from the back straight and west infield tunnel, and features permanent showers and restrooms, street lighting and fresh water spigots. The unreserved camping area will expand this year as fans join the Boy Scouts of America who are in attendance for the annual Pinewood Derby Race of Champions.
Anyone interested in taking advantage of this outstanding opportunity may obtain the Gate 1 camping access upon entering through Gate 2. There is no need to purchase free Gate 1 Camping access in advance. Admission for all who camp is required and tickets for the weekend start at just $35 for three days of GRAND-AM Road Racing at The Glen. Tickets for the 2012 season at Watkins Glen International are on sale now! Fans can purchase their tickets and camping by phone (866) 461-RACE (7223) or online at www.TheGlen.com. Gift certificates, tickets and track merchandise are available for purchase at The Shop located at 2 N. Franklin St. in downtown Watkins Glen.
