We asked V-Ry a few questions ahead of the big weekend:

V-RY : My favorite part from last years coverage was joining a team owner at his pit stall, as well as meeting the winner Kyle Larson
SUN: As a returning reporter, how will this year be different ?
V-RY: The major difference as a returning reporter is that I now know where I’m supposed to go and what I have access to.

V-RY: The communications department at Watkins Glen Raceway are very easy to work with, they’re extremely accommodating and helpful

V-RY: Chase Elliot dominants at this track and is favored 5-1 to win, last years winner Kyle Larson is third at 8-1
