By: WGI Staff on 9/13/2009
Jean Argetsinger and her late husband Cameron (not pictured) were joined by Walter Hansgen and Jim Riesbeck in the Class of 2009 for the Legends of The Glen.
“We understand the importance of having our fans involved with what we do at this track,” stated Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International. “It only makes sense for them to be involved with our nominating process.”
The Legends of The Glen was started in 2008 as part of the 60th anniversary of racing in Watkins Glen and continues to be awarded in honor of individuals that have made a significant impact on The Glen’s history. So far nine people have been inducted in the program. More information can be found at www.TheGlen.com.
The guidelines for submitting nominations are very simple and fans are welcome to submit as many as they wish. All nominations can be sent to the WGI email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and must include the person’s name, a list of their accomplishments at The Glen, and a brief explanation detailing the reasons that the person deserves to be included in the Legends of The Glen. They can also be mailed to Watkins Glen International – Legends, 2790 County Rte. 16, Watkins Glen, N.Y. 14891. Fans can nominate anyone that has had a positive and/or significant impact on WGI and its history. This includes team owners, former WGI staff, officials, and any current or retired driver. The only requirement is that fans only include the accomplishments achieved at The Glen and not at other locations.
The 2009 race season at Watkins Glen International comes to a close today with the conclusion of the U.S. Vintage Grand Prix. Lyn St. James was the weekend’s honored guest and grand marshal and spent the entire weekend reminiscing with fellow racers, friends and fans at Watkins Glen International. Renewals for the 2010 season will go out later this month while tickets will go on sale in November.
