BUFFALO, N.Y. [WKBW] — On Wednesday, NASCAR announced the originally scheduled Go Bowling at The Glen weekend has been moved to the Daytona International Speedway road course from August 14-16.
"This is an unprecedented time in the history of our nation and Watkins Glen International,” said WGI President Michael Printup. “The dynamic situation we are all confronting is impacting our daily lives and activities in unimaginable ways. While we are disappointed we will not experience NASCAR in New York this year, as we look broadly at the current pandemic in our country and around the world, we must focus first on everyone’s safety and well-being as NASCAR seeks the best way to continue delivering a remarkable on-track product week after week.”
As announced in late June, New York is requiring anyone visiting from a state where coronavirus rates are high to quarantine for 14 days. Many drivers and teams are based in North Carolina and Florida, two states that would require a quarantine.
Watkins Glen has hosted this event every year since 1986.
