NASCAR returns after a two-week break due to the Tokyo Olympics, heading to upstate New York for an exciting weekend of road course action at Watkins Glen International.

- Race: Go Bowling at The Glen

This race will kick-off two consecutive weekends of road course racing at NASCAR’s highest level as the series then heads to Indianapolis for a race that will utilize the infield road course.
