Watkins Glen (WENY) - Watkins Glen International Raceway got a seriously cool addition to its races for 2014. The newest race to hit the tracks is the Ferrari Challenge Series.
      
The announcement came from Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday. The speedway will host a Ferrari Challenge race September 19th to 21st. Cuomo says Adding more racing events will help continue to grow tourism and bring more visitors to the Finger Lakes region. The announcement came as part of the opening week of a motor sports exhibit in the concourse to the state capitol.
      
“So when you put Watkins Glen together with Ferrari, together with the Finger Lakes, I don't know if you can have a better combination,” says Cuomo.
     
The road track also will host the Cheez-It 355, The Glen's annual NASCAR Sprint Cup race, from Aug. 7 to 10. On Tuesday, the state Senate passed a resolution honoring Watkins Glen International's 65th anniversary.
