Orchard Park Business to be featured on a NASCAR at Watkins Glen
This is the first for NASCAR and will be part of WNY history this weekend !!
The Go Bowling at The Glen race takes place this weekend at Watkins Glen International Speedway. As coverage of the race begins on NBC this Sunday, Western New Yorkers might recognize a logo on the rear right window area of the Chevrolet 00 car driven by Quin Houff.
This weekend, the Chevrolet Camaro StarCom 00 will sport the Runners Roost shoe store logo. It’s a big time for Runners Roost owners Rob and Michelle Fox as it may be the first time that a boutique-style running store and small business of this caliber will be featured at a place of choice on a NASCAR from the Monster Energy series!
I spoke to Rob Fox from Runners Roost and he told me it was a great opportunity.
“We are excited about the future. The NASCAR market is untapped by any shoe company. As far as we know, this will be a first for a running shoe store. “
Racers perch on a NASCAR
We had the chance to speak with Quin Houf on the show this week about this weekend’s race, his season so far and what it’s like to attract new sponsors and small businesses. .
Look for the 00 Chevrolet Camaro and StarCom racing this weekend at The Glenn and the Runners Roost logo to sprint to victory Lane !!
If you’ve never attended a race at The Glen, this is a great fan spot and a short drive from The Thruway. The road course allows fans to get a close-up view of the drivers as they pass at high speed and also provides great camping when the race is not taking place. most of the people i spoke with who have spent the weekend at the glen rave before how great the experience is and no doubt this weekend will deliver that too.
Coverage of the race is on NBC Sports Network this weekend and it’s the first time since the Olympics started a few weeks ago. There are only a few races left until the playoffs kick off on September 5 at Darlington Speedway.
