WGI Announces Marketing Department Promotions

Watkins Glen, NY (June 30, 2004) - Watkins Glen International President Craig Rust announced today the promotion of three individuals within the track's marketing and communications department. Andy Longenberger will now serve as Corporate Sales Manager, while Ryan Mosher has been named Corporate Sales Executive. Rust also named Eiron Jones Public Relations Manager of the historic road course.

Jones, PR Manager for Nazareth Speedway since August 2003, will lead the public relations efforts for The Glen and replaces Julie Giese, who departs following the 2004 season to serve as Director of Communications for Daytona International Speedway.

He holds a communications degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

Mosher joined The Glen in July 2002 as Marketing Coordinator, where he supported the public relations, consumer marketing and most recently the sales efforts of the marketing team. As Corporate Sales Executive, Mosher will be responsible for servicing and selling corporate sales accounts and group ticket sales for all events.
