Notes

The Zippo 200 at the Glen Watkins Glen International is the 21st race on the 2014 Nationwide Series schedule.

There have been 20 Nationwide races at Watkins Glen. The series competed there once each season from 1991-2001. After a three-year hiatus, the series returned to this road course in 2005 and has been there each season since then.

Terry Labonte holds the record for most Nationwide wins at Watkins Glen with four. Labonte won the inaugural race there, the Fay's 150, on June 29, 1991. He scored three consecutive victories at this course from 1994-96.

Marcos Ambrose also won three Nationwide races in a row at Watkins Glen from 2008-10. Ambrose is on the entry list for this weekend's race, driving the No. 09 Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports.

The Nationwide race winner at Watkins Glen has started from the pole six times, which is more than any other starting position there. Ambrose last did it in 2010.

The furthest back a driver has started and won a Nationwide event at Watkins Glen is 22nd, accomplished by Ernie Irvan in 1992.

Ron Fellows (1998) and Ambrose (2008) are those drivers who scored their first career Nationwide wins at Watkins Glen.

The next race is the Aug. 16 Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. A.J. Allmendinger won last year's inaugural event there.
