The New York State Museum has announced their Brainfood for the Curious: Short Talks at Lunchtime program, “70 Years of Racing History at Watkins Glen” has been set for Tuesday, October 9, 2018 from 12:10 to 12:40 pm, in the Albany Museum’s Huxley Theater.
In 1948 the first postwar road racing event in the United States was held in and around the village of Watkins Glen, NY. Seventy years later auto racing is still a driving force for this small Finger Lakes community. Through the changes and evolution of auto racing, Watkins Glen has remained an important link to motor racing’s past and present. Join History Curator Stephen C. Loughman as he explores 70 years of auto racing history at Watkins Glen.
This free program includes a 20-minute talk followed by brief Q&A. Participants are welcomed to bring their lunches.
The New York State Museum is located at 222 Madison Avenue, in Albany.
