WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WENY) - Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen weekend officially began on Thursday, opening with practices from the Mazda MX-5 Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup, and Lamborghini Super Trofeo. 

Josh Pierson is one of the drivers competing in Sunday's IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. At just 16 years old, he already has a robust racing resume and is looking forward to adding WGI to his track experience. 

"When I look at my career and growing up driving go-karts, right, and them moving into cars and junior formula," Pierson said. "When I look at everything that I've done so far, I'm very proud of what I've achieved and where I've come from. I'm excited to be here, and this is a track I've grown up watching like all the others and it's a big-name track in America. I think this is one of the tracks in the states where it's instantly recognizable. Some of the pictures of this place, you can instantly tell it's Watkins Glen."
