The NASCAR Hall of Fame will introduce the next five inductees this Wednesday October 13th in Charlotte. The NASCAR Hall of Fame committee meets Wednesday and they will reveal the five inductees after the voting process has concluded.
Expand NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductions for First Five Years
With all of the worthy candidates for the NASCAR Hall of Fame it is limiting to narrow it down to only five inductees per year. There is a solution to the problem and it could be very simple. Five drivers each year could be inducted along with one owner, one crew chief, one NASCAR official or promoter, one NASCAR broadcaster and one wild card inductee that could be from any of the existing fields.
This would assure that five drivers per year would be added to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the pioneers of the other facets of the sport could also be honored without taking a spot away from the drivers. Once the NASCAR Hall of Fame reaches 50 members they would now become the veterans committee.
Veterans Committee Would Vote One or Two Members Per Year to NASCAR Hall of Fame
Once 50 NASCAR Hall of Fame members have been inducted, the NASCAR Hall of Fame would once again only elect five inductees. The NASCAR Hall of Fame veterans committee would then be responsible for voting in one or two members that slipped through the cracks of the NASCAR Hall of Fame committee.
The limit of only five NASCAR Hall of Fame members is going to create more than a few oversights but with the ever expanding list of NASCAR Hall of Fame candidates there should still be plenty of debate each year when decisions are to be made.
