The wait is finally over for the two drivers Darrell Walstrip and Cale Yarborough. Both these championship winning drivers who have a rather explosive personal connection are now headed into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

They are now joined with eight other series champion crw chief Dale Inman, Richie Evans who is a nine time Modified champion and also Glen Wood the pioneering driver and also owner. NFL scores
Brian Rance the NASCAR chairman who was also the guy on the receiving end of a playful kiss on his cheek was tearful “It’s probably the best class of the three,” “You’ve got two of the greatest drivers. You’ve got the greatest crew chief. You have a legendary car owner, and then you have Richie Evans, who dominated in Modified racing. It demonstrates the Hall of Fame is more than just the Sprint Cup series.”It’s hard to argue this class in any way, in my view.”
Yarborough was leading with 85% of the vote by a huge 55 personal panel has won 83 races and has gotten three consecutive titles from 1976-78. The only streak longer is of Jimmie Johnson who has five titles. Yarborough’s 83 wins put him in sixth. He has the Daytona 500s to his name and also served as a car owner until he decided to quit the sport in 1999. NFL odds
Yarborough was however not at the announcement was speaking by phone as he watched the telecast with his wife in the shop of his farm in Sardis, SC said “I’m glad. I’m glad that’s over with,” “Everybody has been asking me, ‘Do you think it’s this time? Do you think you’ll go in this time?’ he added “I feel honored. I’m in a lot of different motorsports halls of fame, but to be in the NASCAR Hall of Fame with the guys who are already in and the ones who will come later means a lot to me. It’s a great group to be a part of.”
