NASCAR will be in New York this weekend for its events. The Truck Series will be off, but the Xfinity and Cup Series will both be in action. The Watkins Glen International race track will host the 2023 Shriners Children’s 200 at The Glen Xfinity race on Saturday, August 19, and then the 2023 Go Bowling at The Glen Cup Series race on Sunday, August 20.
This seems like a good weekend for the Truck Series to be off as the weather looks the worst on Friday. Temperatures will be mild on Saturday before turning warmer on Sunday, but with a slightly increased chance for rain.
