Quite the list of NASCAR who's who.:cool:

Absolutely agree, I'm glad I'm not on the committee that has to narrow it down to just 5. I think the "first" class should of been 10 then go to 5 per year after that, in my opinion 3 are "locks" Bill Sr., Bill Jr and King Richard so that leaves 2 spots for 22 guys rough choice.

Curtis Turner is a bit of a surprise. He only won 17 races but was suspended for nearly 5 years for trying to unionize the drivers in the early '60's.

Curtis Turner, first to win Daytona 500, Southern 500, Coca-Cola 600 in same year. <<< This must be the only reason then, or they just had to throw out more names to make it look like they have alot of guys to choose from???

:wave::wave:I bet I know one that will get in....Dale Sr. Not trying to start an arguement, but we all know its most likely going to happen, which is total :bs:!

Hey Butler....you live just up the road from me, about 10 miles or so.

I think having both France's is overkill. Jr. will wait a year or two.

I agree that the inaugural class is too small. The football HoF has a class of 17 the first year.

Always good to have a fellow Buckeye on the board.
