| One of the most affordable and family friendly events on the Watkins Glen International schedule is just a bit more accessible. The Glen announced FREE camping is available for Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen, where Kids and Teens 18 and under are already free. Known for its unlimited access this GRAND-AM event weekend is now even more of a not-to-be missed event.
'Value is King in this economy,' Watkins Glen International track president Michael Printup said. 'Families look for the ideal staycation and there is no better introduction to the professional world of motorsports than NASCAR's GRAND-AM Road Racing Series.'
The free camping offer is good for the Gate 1 Camping section, located a short distance from the back straight and west infield tunnel, and features permanent showers and restrooms, street lighting and fresh water spigots. The unreserved camping area will expand this year as fans join the Boy Scouts of America who are in attendance for the annual Pinewood Derby Race of Champions.
Anyone interested in taking advantage of this outstanding opportunity may obtain the Gate 1 camping access upon entering through Gate 2. There is no need to purchase FREE Gate 1 Camping access in advance. Admission for all who camp is required and tickets for the weekend start at just $35 for three days of GRAND-AM Road Racing at The Glen.

|1969 United States Grand Prix: The Rise of RindtIf there was one racer in the Formula One paddock that drivers and spectators alike believed should have scored his first victory before the start of the 1969 season it would almost unanimously be Jochen Rindt. Fast and flamboyant, the Austrian exhibited car control that enthralled just about everyone it seemed, except perhaps the cars themselves. Constantly undercut by poor reliability, it seemed Rindt was to forever suffer under such an oppressive weight. However, at the 1969 United States Gra....|

Those ancient Daytona photos have a peculiar quality. The cars look dated though the track, especially the banking, looked much like it does now. But the cars are headed the wrong way – like a negative printed in reverse. It seemed unnatural. That didn't last long.
