Watkins Glen International announces Fan Fest driver appearances, VIP pass sales


WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (July 27, 2017) – Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stars Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, Erik Jones, and Ty Dillon will appear at Watkins Glen International’s Fan Fest on Friday night, August 4th, of the I Love New York 355 at The Glen race weekend.


Fans with a weekend ticket will be admitted to Friday’s event, which kicks off at 7:00 p.m. just after the conclusion of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Finger Lakes Wine Country 100, set to take the green flag late Friday afternoon.


The evening’s concert will be headlined by Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real. Syracuse, New York’s Savannah Harmon Band will open the show.


Nelson, son of legendary American musician Willie Nelson, has been the frontman of “POTR” since its formation in 2008. The band released its third studio album, Something Real, on March 11, 2016, offering the latest installment of what they call “cowboy hippie surf rock”.


Fans looking to get even closer to their favorite drivers during the concert are invited to purchase a “VIP access pass” for $50. Fans can learn more about this opportunity to take in the show from a preferred viewing area or purchase their passes by calling 1-866-461-RACE.


“We’ve had a hard time keeping this driver lineup for Friday night a secret,” said Watkins Glen International President Michael Printup. “When we found out ourselves, we knew how excited the fans would be, so we’re thrilled to add this element to Friday night’s entertainment and can’t wait to get those guys on stage.”

The entertainment continues on Saturday night following the conclusion of the NASCAR XFINITY Series Zippo 200, with Small Town Shade taking to the Gate 7 stage at 7:00 p.m., located near the Riesbeck grandstand. Also at 7, Kimber Lane will appear in Gate 1. Fans can expect both shows to feature the best of today’s country music hits.
