WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WETM) – The 18 Sports team takes a look back at Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen week at Watkins Glen International.

Highlights from the week include:

The Mazda Team Joest of Jonathan Bomarito, Harry Tincknell, and Olivier Pla won the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen in the Daytona Prototype international class on Sunday.

18 Sports braved the heat in a live interview with Watkins Glen International president, Michael Printup. Printup and Sahlen’s president, Joe Sahlen, held a special cookout for fans on Friday. Each fan had the opportunity to get a free Sahlen’s hot dog, a nice gesture by the title sponsor of the race in honor of their 150th anniversary as a company.

Our very own Nikita Ramos took a hot lap with A.J. Alsup, the Chief Instructor for the Mercedes AMG Driving Academy in the U.S. She gave an inside look of the twists and turns of the legendary track at Watkins Glen International going up to 150 miles per hour.
