SALAMANCA, NY – As New York gears up for the largest stock car race of the year, Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel will add to the excitement by hosting a public meet-and-greet with legendary race car driver Rusty Wallace.
The event takes place from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9, in the pre-function area near the Seneca Allegany Events Center.
Wallace is one of the winningest drivers in the sport of professional stock car driving with 55 victories throughout his 35-year career. He is a member of the National Motorsports Press Association’s (NMPA) Hall of Fame and a two-time NMPA Driver of the Year. Wallace is widely acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on NASCAR racing and continues to contribute as an analyst during nationally-televised races.
Wallace comes to Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel just before a major racing weekend in nearby Watkins Glen, NY. During the meet-and-greet, racing fans will have the opportunity to have their pictures taken and get autographs. Prior to the event, guests can enjoy the Winners’ Circle Hot Seat from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the casino’s gaming floor, with drawings every half-hour for a chance to drive an authentic race car simulator and win $200 in Free Slot Play. To enter, guests should play on their favorite slot machine with their free Seneca Players Club Card inserted, and then listen for their names to be called.
