A Brief Information about Watkins Glen International Speedway
Watkins Glen International, or the Glen, is an auto-race track located near Watkins Glen, New York at the southern tip of Seneca Lake. It was long known around the world as the home of the United States Grand Prix, which it hosted for 20 consecutive years but it has been home to road racing of nearly every class for over 50 years.
Law student Cameron Argetsinger dreamed of bringing European style competition to the village where he spent his summer vacations. He drew up a challenging course that encompassed asphalt, cement and dirt roads in and around the village of Watkins Glen. It was the beginning of the Watkins Glen International. The dream became reality on Oct. 2, 1948. For five years, the top names in American sports car racing visited the small village and huge crowds came out to watch them race.
Competition moved to a temporary course in 1953, and a 2.3-mile permanent circuit was built in 1956. The following year, Watkins Glen International hosted its first professional race, a NASCAR Grand National Stock Car event won by Buck Baker over Fireball Roberts.
The Watkins Glen International was expanded in 1971, as the seventies brought a wide variety of competition, including the Can-Am, Trans-Am, Six Hours, Formula 5000 and CART Indy Car Series. Race winners included many of the top names in international motorsports, including Mark Donohue, Mario Andretti, Jody Scheckter and Bruce McLaren.
In 1997, International Speedway Corporation, whose holdings include Daytona International Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Darlington Raceway and Phoenix Int'l Raceway, became sole owner of the historic Watkins Glen International, exercising a stock option buy-out of Corning Incorporated. The sale completed Corning's mission of rebuilding the racetrack while revitalizing the Southern Finger Lakes Region.
