NOTES:Watkins Glen used to be one of the most scenic road courses in North America, but it's now considered to be one of the most inadequate facilities on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series schedule. ... The key to Watkins Glen is finding balance in the turns so the car can burst from the corners down the straightaways.
