Watkins Glen gives new meaning to a slick racetrack (check out the video)

There’s been a lot of talk of late about NASCAR potentially adding another road course race to the Cup schedule.

There’s been rumors about a race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as well as talk Daytona International Speedway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Circuit of the Americas all being interested as well.

But we may have stumbled upon the best idea yet.

Sure, you may have to button up a little bit -- and this will definitely give new meaning to the term “slick racetrack” -- but check out how the folks at Watkins Glen International used the backdrop of winter storm Stella to come up with an alternative form of road course racing.

We’ve heard of rain tires, but how about snow tires on a racetrack?

Check out this great video from the track:

Speaking of snow and racetracks, maybe they should have snowplow races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after it got buried under the white stuff earlier this week.

Check out the time-lapse video from pre- to post-Stella:
