Watkins Glen, NY (January 19, 2000) - Watkins Glen International president, Bryan Sperber, announced this week that campers at this year's August 10-13, Global Crossing @ The Glen NASCAR Winston Cup Series race will have access to portable showers throughout the entire weekend. The temporary shower facilities will contain private shower areas for men and women. Tentative plans call for the shower units to be located in the eastern section of the infield and to be open to the public Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. "We've received numerous requests from our camping customers asking for access to shower facilities," said Sperber. "The installation of these shower units will help us to provide a short-term solution for our guests until other arrangements and facilities can be constructed." Jeff Gordon will return to Watkins Glen and try to capture his fourth consecutive victory at the 2000 Global Crossing @ The Glen NASCAR Winston Cup Series race scheduled for August 10-13. Tickets for all 2000 events are now available.
