Wow, can't believe I don't see a thread for this topic anywhere on the board considering all the talk, unless I'm having a senior moment and cant find it or its buried in another thread I didn't find worthy of my attention...LOL. Anyhoo.... With only 5 inductees, all this nonsense about committees and fan votes seems unnecessary at least the first year cause yours truly only sees 5 possible entrants for the first class: France France, Jr L. Petty R. Petty D. Earnhardt I'm guessing there could be arguments for others but I'll put my top 5 against anyone else's. If I recall, I believe Mr. Poole has a disdain for Fan voting so I'd like to hear his point of view on it (I may have missed it). I'm not a big fan of fan's voting either but I think it should be included just weighted a lot less than the other voters. I don't really think it will come into play until a few years or if they decide to do more than 5. I thought the first class or first few years would have been closer to 7-10 inductees.
