Cameron R. Argetsinger has been named president of the International Motor Racing Research Center at Watkins Glen.
The appointment to lead this important facility dedicated to the preservation of the history of motorsport brings Argetsinger full-circle, as he was the founder of racing in Watkins Glen after World War II.
Argetsinger has a rich history of involvement in motorsport, starting with founding, organizing and competing in the first race through the streets of Watkins Glen. Later, as executive director of the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Corp., Argetsinger was the first race promoter to make Formula One racing a success in America. All told he organized Glen racing for 23 years.
“No one that I know in racing could possibly bring the same expertise and sense of organization and ethics as Cam Argetsinger,” said John Bishop, chairman of the Racing Research Center Council.
