INDUCTION
WEEKEND

The Class of 2021 Induction Ceremony, originally scheduled to take place February 2021, has been postponed until early 2022.

Class of 2021
Induction Ceremony

We have made the difficult decision to postpone the Class of 2021 Induction Ceremony.

The safety of our inductees and all our guests is the highest priority at the Hall. The uncertainty surrounding the ongoing public health crisis, including our ability to safely assemble 2,000+ people, made the decision clear. It's important that the Inductees can share all the events and celebrations with their family, friends and fans.

Induction Weekend FAQs

Why did the NASCAR Hall choose to postpone the Induction events? icon

The safety of our inductees and all our guests is the highest priority for us at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. It is also imperative that we celebrate and honor our current class - Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Red Farmer and the late Mike Stefanik, along with our Landmark Award recipient Ralph Seagraves and Squier-Hall Award recipient as we have the previous classes, in a manner representative of their incredible accomplishments in NASCAR and contributions to NASCAR. The uncertainty around being able to accomplish these objectives on the dates originally scheduled, coupled with the need to advise our guests who need to make travel plans, made this the right decision at this time.
