If you look at the list of finalist for the 2011 NASCAR Hall of Fame class you see a wide variety of NASCAR personalities.
You will see some of the original NASCAR stars like Ned Jarrett, Curtis Turner and Fireball Roberts.
There is also promoter T. Wayne Robertson who probably had more impact on NASCAR than any other non driver.
You have some of the best to ever turn a wrench, such like Dale Inman.
Some of the most successful car owners in NASCAR history are there as well ,Raymond Parks, Rick Hendrick, Richard Childress and the Wood Brothers.
Some of NASCAR true pioneers are also listed as finalist. However, I think drivers like Herb Thomas, Joe Weatherly, Richie Evans, Fred Lorenzen, Tim Flock and Red Byron will have to wait one more year.
The main problem with the NASCAR Hall Of Fame is that they are over 60 years behind. In my opinion the next two or three draft classes should include at least seven or eight people.
Here are the five I think will get into the Hall Of Fame in 2011. I'm accually glad I only had to pick five. After this class it will really start getting tough.
