Bully Hill Vineyards has renewed as the title sponsor for the Watkins Glen Int’l NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event, which will become the Bully Hill Vineyards 100 in 2016 after being a 125-mile event the past two seasons.
The race is set for Aug. 5, 2016, as part of the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen race weekend.
“We are very excited to spread the news of Bully Hill Vineyards’ involvement and support for next season’s event,” said Watkins Glen Int’l President Michael Printup. “Lillian Taylor and Bully Hill Vineyards continue to be major supporters of race teams and our facility for years. We are happy to have them back for 2016.”
In August, the Bully Hill-sponsored No. 34 of Scott Heckert won his second straight NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at The Glen.
“Bully Hill is very excited to be back at The Glen for the third straight year,” said Lillian Taylor, Owner of Bully Hill Vineyards. “It’s because of the continuing support of WGI, the racing community, and especially the fans that make this partnership possible. We are looking forward to another great race in 2016.”
