It was a tough call, too many great candidates, too few spots. Perhaps they should have had a few more openings.
 
I haven't been around racing as long as many of you, and I've only heard about some of the great racers from the early days of NASCAR, so it's hard for me to judge who should have or shouldn't have gotten in, but from everything I've read, many are disappointed that David Pearson wasn't included.

I've been racing since i was 16 and a fan before that. I too thought there should have been more in the first class. Some of the early drivers like the original alabama gang Bobby + Donnie Allison, Red Farmer. Maybe fireball Roberts, Tiny Lund,Tim Flock, Lee Petty. Hard not to agree the Founder Bill sr. & the two 7 time champs Earnhardt, Petty.

All in all,some very good choices.Interesting to see next years nominees,but I think it's only going to get tougher as the years go by.
I truly hope the old timers don't get passed over,the younger generations need to remember the roots of NASCAR.

You can't go wrong with any of the choices, except maybe Bill France Jr. I thought David Pearson belonged in that 1st group, and Bill Jr. could go in next year. Great to see Junior Johnson make it. What a great Icon he is. It would be nice to be able to go to the induction ceremony in May!
