Weekend Notes 
 

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) is heading to the second road course of the 2019 season. Having competed at Sonoma Raceway in June, Ty Dillon will now take on the seven turns of Watkins Glen International. The course is 2.45 miles in length, and Dillon will turn 90 laps in the GEICO Military Camaro ZL1.

 

This will be Dillon’s third MENCS race at Watkins Glen. Between his two previous Cup Series starts and his four NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the track, Dillon has finished every lap of competition.  

Dillon Weekend Chatter

What are your thoughts as you prepare for Watkins Glen?
“I feel like I’m a great road racer. Our team has struggled in the past couple of years, but I feel like a top-20 or a top-18 finish there would be a great improvement for our GEICO Military team. Watkins Glen is such a different animal than Sonoma and The Roval. So, you can’t really build off of any them to prepare for the next one. Hopefully we can continue to better ourselves from last year’s notes and our time in the simulator.”
