Race Services Incorporated

What is Race Services, Inc.?

We're an organization of volunteers committed to promoting the cause of road racing enthusiasts, and promoting Watkins Glen International as a leader in road racing. 

We make up the safety team, while providing support with Course Marshals; Flagging and Communications; Fire-Rescue; Grid; Paddock; Pits; Race Medical; Start-Finish; Training Coordinator; and Worker Support.

The benefits of working as a team include the friendships you gain with other racing followers that enjoy the sport as much as you do! Campsites are available for the volunteer workers; at the day’s end you can share food, laughter, and campfires! You will soon become FRAMILY! Guest passes are an additional benefit to volunteers.

Want to share your excitement of racing – come on down and join our team that supports Watkins Glen International!
