THE GLEN GOES DOUBLE PLATINUM

Watkins Glen, NY ( June 10, 1999 ) - Watkins Glen International went "Double Platinum" today as they announced the much anticipated musical lineup for June's Lysol 200 and Bully Hill Vineyards 150 weekend. The track announced that Platinum selling stars Blessid Union of Soul and Edwin McCain will be performing at Watkins Glen this June. Blessid Union of Souls rose to Platinum status after their debut album "HOME" sold more than 1 million copies and included the #1 single "I Believe" and the smash hit "Let Me Be The One". Fans at Watkins Glen will hear the bands newly released album, "WALKING OFF THE BUZZ", and their new smash hit, "HEY LEONARDO (SHE LIKES ME FOR ME!)", performed on Friday night, June 25, following practice and qualifying. "We've always had an interest in fast cars and racing," said Eliot Sloan, the band's lead singer. "NASCAR is the hottest sport in America. We can't wait to be a part of it at Watkins Glen!" Edwin McCain, taking the stage at The Glen on Saturday night, June 26th, has become a NASCAR fan since he performed for the record crowd at this year's Daytona 500. McCain has enjoyed popular success with the song "SOLITUDE" and recently his hit single, "I'LL BE" has dominated the popular music charts for nearly a year. "I'LL BE" was featured on the popular television show, "Dawson's Creek" and became a Top 5 hit. Edwin McCain's new single "I COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE" hit the airwaves May 24, and has already begun the climb to the top. Having an opportunity to be a part of the Daytona 500 was very exciting," said McCain. " I'm looking forward to having a chance to perform at another one of NASCAR's legendary tracks, Watkins Glen." "Today's announcement that Blessid Union and Edwin McCain will be performing at Watkins Glen will turn a great race weekend into a phenomenal three day entertainment event," said Bryan R. Sperber, track president. Fans purchasing a weekend general admission ticket for June 25-27, will now be treated to three headline racing events and two major concerts all for only $50.00.
