 WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Watkins Glen International is ready for any kind of weather.
A week after 10 fans were injured by lightning strikes at Pocono Raceway, one of them fatally, WGI president Michael Printup says his staff has been drilled repeatedly on what to do in case of a storm.
Printup says there are more than 30 police cruisers with loudspeakers and nine big-screen televisions to warn fans. His staff also has text message availabilities to warn fans of impending danger.
Printup says all emergency action plans are reviewed with NASCAR prior to a race.
Several violent thunderstorms moved through the Watkins Glen area Thursday night and rain forced NASCAR to curtail Sprint Cup practice on Friday. The Cup cars still hadn't made it onto the track at 4 p.m., though the Nationwide Series practiced in the rain on rain tires.
