Michael's legacy lives on in the Michael R. Argetsinger Symposium for International Motor Racing History which will be held for the fifth time over two days, the 8th and 9th of November, in Watkins Glen.
This year, we have what can only be seen as a bumper crop of submissions for the symposium, demonstrating the growing interest in the topic.
It will be the usual mixture of scholars from the world of the Academe, but also those independent scholars pursuing their personal interest and, yes, enthusiasm for the subject.
Former NASCAR historian Buz McKim will be back, the founder and publisher of Racemaker Press, Dr. Joe Freeman will also return, along with several other Argetsinger stalwarts, such as Dr. Mark Howell, whose presentation will address the relationship between NASA and motorsports.
This year, we intend to conduct both days of the symposium at the Watkins Glen International media center, making the experience even more in keeping with what Mike and I originally wished for the symposium.
We should have the schedule finally hammered out soon and will post it when the dust settles.
The Michael Argetsinger Symposium is, of course, open to the public along with the reception held on Friday evening at the International Motor Racing Research Center (IMRRC).
All we ask is that those attending consider making a donation to the IMRRC.
