ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Genesee Brewing Co. announced that it will be the primary sponsor for Go Green Racing's No. 32 Ford Fusion driven by racing legend Boris Said at Watkins Glen this August.
Genesee will sponsor the team for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkin's Glen on Sunday, August 9, 2015. Watkin's Glen International is one of only two road racing tracks in the country.
According to Matt Goldman, channel marketing manager for Genesee, the beer company is thrilled to be a primary sponsor at The Glen for the fourth consecutive year. "We're excited to bring Genesee back to the Glen with a racing legend like Boris Said.
