WATKINS GLEN, NY (AUGUST 3, 2000) - Watkins Glen announced today that www.theglen.com will be the official sponsor of the Busch North Series event on Saturday, August 12. Scheduled to start at 12:00 p.m., the race will now be known as theglen.com 150 presented by Pepsi.

As part of the sponsorship, www.theglen.com, the official website of Watkins Glen International, will provide a live broadcast over the Internet.

Visitors to www.theglen.com during the race broadcast will automatically be registered to win an official checkered flag autographed by the winner of Sunday's Global Crossing @ The Glen NASCAR Winston Cup Series race. When website visitors log on to the broadcast, the website will display a registration box on screen. The winner will be randomly drawn from those registered following Saturday's event. "www.theglen.com has been made a priority at Watkins Glen for the last several years," said Roger Curtis, General Manager of Marketing and Sales at Watkins Glen International. "Sponsorship of theglen.com 150 presented by Pepsi continues to enhance our website and the opportunities that it offers our customers. Now in addition to the many services and amenties that are found on the website, fans can actually receive the full race broadcast at www.theglen.com ."

Coverage of the race broadcast will be provided by Mike Paz, the Voice of Watkins Glen, and local radio and racing personality, Chris P. Bacon. AM 820 WWLZ, a local MRN affiliate, will carry a simulcast of theglen.com 150 presented by Pepsi.

Tickets are still available for the theglen.com 150 Busch North Series race and the Global Crossing @ The Glen Winston Cup Series event. For ticket, camping, and additional information, please contact the Watkins Glen ticket office at 607-535-2481 or log on to www.theglen.com.
