The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tackles its second road course of the season on Sunday at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, New York.
Known as “The Glen” it is one of only two road courses on the Sprint Cup Circuit.
Sunday’s Cheez-It 355 will be run on 11-turn course.
The race course known as the home of the United States Grand Prix, which it hosted 1961–1980, has been home to road racing of nearly every class for over 50 years.
Marco Ambrose will look to make it three straight Watkins Glen wins on Sunday.
