Driving on the track is AWEOME! My kids loved it. Highly recommend! We sent at 10:30am and there was already a truck ahead of us. We watched some cars practicing on the track which was exciting before we got to drive on it. Driving on the track is so exciting. Recommend this attraction even if you are not a race... More

Let me preface that statement by saying that although I have been to every Cup track on the circuit since 2000 I haven't been to all of the camping areas unless they are actually in the infield. I've heard the outside camping at Bristol is fantastic and Michigan's camping outside is getting to be as well known for its partying... More

Day two into a three day track visit. The area is just spectacular. I'll admit that the weather has been chamber of commerce perfect, but the beauty of the area is much more than just a sunny day, and the track sits in the middle of it. It's difficult to describe the size of the track. Suffice it to say... More

As we drive through Watkins Glen there was a sign that said you could drive on the track for $25. Three laps behind a pace truck on the actual track. Now I have to admit that I am not a huge nascar fan however this was a great and very enjoyable experience. With the big race coming up we managed... More

There is music, food, wine, beer, cider and more wine.. did I mention wine.. more wine and more.... Amazing for the Wine O ! Not a... More

Every year in July they have the fingerlakes wine festival. It's a great location. The festival is a lot of fun. They do pace car runs for $20 which is cool.

I was there for the Sahlens 6 hours at Watkins Glen Race, and it was great. I have never been to the Finger Lakes area of NY and there are some beautiful views around the raceway. It was a great race day, and the grounds were kept well.

When there are no official races, you can watch sports car clubs race or practice. When no one is using the track, you can take your... More
