Go Bowling Fan Experience
This year, Go Bowling joined the Watkins Glen International family as our title sponsor for the Monster Energy Cup Series race on Sunday, August 5th. Bowling, similar to racing, is all about friends, family, and fun! Enjoy the best of both worlds by stopping over to the Go Bowling fan experience display on the Midway! Go Bowling has set up a pair of bowling lanes for fans to enjoy. Fans will also have the opportunity to win bowling gear, free games and prizes, a chance to meet both PBA and NASCAR professionals, as well as a chance to win upgraded Pit Box seats!
