According to Watkins Glen International, Danica Patrick, who drives the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing, will participate in a special Q&A session at the Budweiser Turn 1 Tavern on Saturday, August 9. This announcement is added to a previous one that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. will also take questions that weekend at Turn 1. His appearance will be on Sprint Cup race day, Sunday August 10.
An additional charge to the gate admission is required for access to the Budweiser Turn 1 Tavern. Track officials say that the extra fee will not only include the fan opportunities with Patrick and Earnhardt, but fans will also have covered trackside viewing of races Friday through Sunday as well as discounts on food and beverages.
Danica Patrick is currently 28th in the points standings in the 2014 Sprint Cup season, according to NASCAR. She has 382 points after the Brickyard 400 last weekend. Patrick came in 20th on the historic road course in the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen in 2013.
The three races of the weekend at the Glen include Friday's Bully Hill Vineyards 125 K&N Pro Series race featuring new talent; Saturday's Zippo 200 at The Glen in the Nationwide Series; and the Sprint Cup Cheez-It 355 at The Glen on Sunday.
