This weekend was wet. Really wet. It rained all day Saturday, and much of the racing afternoon was cancelled - Tudor qualifying first, then the Super Trofeo race after the GT3 Cup guys tried to have a go of it. And Sunday the weather teased us with dry but overcast conditions before forming rivers and lakes on track again just past the halfway point.
This was my first time to Watkins Glen, and I’m hooked - it’s a really amazing spectator venue, and I’m not at all surprised that it’s the most popular track on the NASCAR calendar. Despite the weather, I had an absolute blast. Standing at the bottom of turn 1 and watching them thunder up the hill was arguably one of the most visceral spectating sensations I’ve had. What are your favorites spots to watch from?
