This aerial panorama of Watkins Glen International was taken during a NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race by Christopher Gjevre. Law student and racing enthusiast Cameron Argetsinger dreamed up plans to bring European style sports car racing to the village of Watkins Glen. The dream became a reality on October 2, 1948. The Glen hosted its first Formula 1 race in 1961 and first NASCAR Winston Cup Series race in August of 1986. In addition to holding NASCAR and SCCA events, Watkins Glen International also hosts the nation's largest vintage events, the Zippo U.S. Vintage Grand Prix and hosts the open-wheel cars of the IndyCar Series once a year.
