Editor's note: Scroll down for updates...

The sun is shining and there are just a few clouds in the air over Watkins Glen International as drivers and teams prepare for Sunday's Cheez-It 355 at The Glen. This race has become one of the intense and aggressive events of the entire Sprint Cup season, and judging by Saturday's XFINITY Series event we may be in store for another great race.

The crews have been busy since the garage opened Sunday morning, putting the final touches on their cars, preparing the pit boxes and pushing the cars through the NASCAR technical inspection process.

Take a lap around the 2.45-mile road course in the official pace car.

As they do every weekend, the drivers have been busy visiting with race fans, sponsor and hospitality guests.
