WATKINS GLEN--Racing will return to Watkins Glen with the upcoming Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen this weekend. The sports cars will comprise the largest field since 2014 to take on the Watkins Glen International road course. A total of 49 cars from five classes will be on the track for the six-hour endurance race in the seventh event of the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup.
"WGI has always been a great partner with the village," said Watkins Glen Mayor Luke Leszyk. "They are not only important to our economy but that of the region as a whole. We are very excited to see them up and running at full speed (and) we look forward to the upcoming Sahlen's race as well as the numerous other events this year."
On the track, Sahlen's will mark the first time since March when all five classes of car will be in competition together.
