Watkins Glen International remains on Sprint Cup schedule through 2020


WATKINS GLEN, New York — NASCAR will race at Watkins Glen International for the next five years.

International Speedway Corp., which owns the storied racetrack in upstate New York, has inked a five-year sanction agreement with NASCAR, which again will stage both Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series races next Aug. 6-7.

Dramatic finishes and good weather the past four years have spiked interest in the Cup road race at The Glen, which announced its first sellout crowd in August when Joey Logano notched his first road course win in Cup.

The track is undergoing a repaving, and crews have finished placement of the asphalt on the 3.5-mile layout. Installation of concrete rumble strips, grading and grassing along the perimeter of the track, and completion of concrete placement on pit road still have to be completed.
