  • I was so impressed with the traffic control the state troopers provided. They have entering and exiting down to a science. Very crowded, but I never felt unsafe. The vendors were ALL incredibly friendly. The event security were all patient, helpful, and understanding. Thanks for a great time!
  • Drive the Glen! Best $30 I’ve spent in a long time. 3 laps around Watkins Glen and you get to stop and take pictures at the start finish line. The kids loved it. We loved it. What else can I say?
