NASCAR returns to Watkins Glen International for the I Love New York 355 this weekend

NASCAR's top drivers, including Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the final time, return to the Finger Lakes this weekend for the newly renamed I Love New York 355 weekend at Watkins Glen International.

Festivities run all weekend, with a big change in the schedule for this year.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series Zippo 200 is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Saturday, following qualifying at 11 a.m.

The first practice for the Monster Energy Cup Series I Love New York 355 is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, with qualifying moving to Sunday at noon this year. The race itself is scheduled for 3 p.m.

Track president Michael Printup joined us on Good Day Rochester to talk what's new at this year's event and why Watkins Glen annually provides one of the most exciting races on the NASCAR schedule.
