NASCAR gets twisted as the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series head to Watkins Glen International.

The New York road course is the last of two on the Sprint Cup schedule and the second of three on the Nationwide schedule. Compared to Sonoma's tight turns, Watkins Glen is a faster track.

The Camping World Truck Series is on a break and will return next week at Michigan.
