WATKINS GLEN, NY – State Senator Tom O’Mara (R, Big Flats) and Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R, Corning) are urging area residents to vote for Watkins Glen International once a day, every day, until the contest closes on Monday, June 22, at noon.
The area legislators noted that Watkins Glen is currently running in 1st Place out of 20 nationwide finalists for the 2015 designation, but it’s been bumper to bumper with Martinsville Speedway (Ridgeway, VA) over the past week.
“Let’s finish strong this weekend, deliver our support and keep
voting until Monday to help Watkins Glen International take the checkered flag as the best NASCAR track in America. It’s a great opportunity to put the Finger Lakes region on the national map once again and to show our pride in ‘The Glen’ as a favorite destination of visitors from across the country, a cornerstone of our leading tourism industry, and a driving force for charity, community service and economic development,” O’Mara and Palmesano said in a joint statement.
According to USA Today, voters are allowed to vote once every 24
hours from every Internet-capable device they have.
