WATKINS GLEN, NY (June 11, 2015) – Watkins Glen International is thrilled to announce the addition of “Full Throttle at The Glen”, a new VIP all-access experience available for the August 6-9 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Cheez-It™ 355 weekend.
This exclusive VIP package features hall-of-fame motorsports personalities as your weekend tour guides – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Rusty Wallace along with IMSA and 4-time Trans-Am champion Tommy Kendall will take you on personal pace car laps and garage tours.
“For the die-hard NASCAR fan, there is no experience like Full Throttle at The Glen,” said Wallace. “From the time guests arrive at the track on race weekend, they’re going to be treated to unmatched behind-the-scenes access, with all of the VIP amenities imaginable. I’m looking forward to being part of it.”
“Full Throttle” includes a Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen NASCAR hot pass allowing entry into the garage area, starter stand viewing opportunities, weekend FanVision rental, photos with winning drivers and celebrities in Gatorade Victory Lane, driver and motorsports personality appearances in The Pit Inn, a dedicated weekend hostess, and exclusive WGI gift package. Additionally, fans will receive access to pre-race activities and driver & crew chief meetings throughout the weekend.
“Full Throttle at The Glen is the ultimate way to attend a race,” said Kendall. “With this package you will have a turn-key VIP-type experience with hospitality and access that others dream of. Want to be in the starter’s stand? Want to go to the driver’s meeting? Attend Gatorade Victory Lane? See the garages? Hang out with me; get my insights and full-color comments? Ok, the last part makes it sound like I like to hang out with myself, but you get the idea. I look forward to seeing everyone in August.”
