Watkins Glen International said it plans to increase capacity at its family camping area for next year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend.

Operators of the Finger Lakes track said the area, which just opened this past summer, is being expanded due to demand and fan feedback.

The camping site will nearly double in size and continue to feature reserved weekend campsites. WGI noted the camping option will only be available during the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen event weekend, set for Aug. 9-12.

There are a limited number of sites available at the advanced sale price of $225.
