WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WIVB) – A readers’ poll in USA Today has named Watkins Glen International the favorite NASCAR track of voters.

The road course, located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, led the list of 20 finalists.

News 4’s Nalina Shapiro went to Watkins Glen race track Friday during the “The Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen” weekend.

The event features five racing series totaling nearly 24 hours of racing action.  Events included are the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites, Porsche GT3 Cup USA, and Lamborghini Super Trofeo.

Watkins Glen State Park also earned high honors in a USA Today poll last month. In that poll, Watkins Glen State Park finished in third place with Letchworth State Park in Wyoming County taking first place. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
