The 2016 INDYCAR race weekend is coming fast to Watkins Glen International. Just days after the NASCAR race finished up at The Glen, INDYCAR drivers invaded WGI to test out the newly paved track. 

Thursday afternoon was broken up into two practice sessions, with the second being called off to heavy rain on the track. Drivers expressed their true love and passion for the track, but also spoke about the difference in the pavement. Cars have been moving faster and breaking on several turns has changed for most drivers. 

18 Sports recaps the day at Watkins Glen before the circuit goes full throttle in a few weeks. The 2016 INDYCAR Grand Prix at The Glen will be Sunday, September 4th at 2 p.m. at WGI.  The INDY LIGHTS series will hold its race on Saturday, September 3rd at 2:45 p.m.
