Inside the Induction Ceremony – The Move From May to January

Kicking off the inaugural NASCAR Acceleration Weekend on Friday, Jan. 20 is the induction of the NASCAR Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012 – Richie Evans, Dale Inman, Darrell Waltrip, Glen Wood, and Cale Yarborough. This revered group, comprised of three drivers, a crew chief and a team owner, marks the third class to be inducted into the Hall.

    Really enjoyed the time with the wood brothers. I love to hear them talk, being from GA I like slow talk. I'm not sure Glen & Leonard know how big an impact their clan had on three maybe four generations. My whole life if you thought of a ford, you thought of the Woods. Everybody who drove a ford pulled for the 21 or where I'm from, Jody Ridley. I got a T-Bird on my driveway now. They made everybody proud on mondays because they WON! Congrats to the whole clan on Glen's induction. Just a matter of time till some more Woods are honored.
