THE place to be prior to race day was downtown Watkins Glen and Les Smalley's Garage.  Smalley's was was tech inspection and every car
from the most exotic to the every day had to come through Les' place before heading up the hill to the track.  Here are shots
taken around Smalley's garage of cars and drivers waiting
to go through the line.  Entry at the Grand Prix was huge, often over 300 cars
