The two I'm happy to see get in are Ingram and Roberts. Think DJ is a hall of famer but I think he was voted in way too early.

I'm happy with this class. So happy Fireball finally got in. Still waiting on Joe Weatherly. I thought he should've been in the 2nd class. 25 wins in the premier series, 2 consecutive championships and 12 wins in the Convertible class.

Jarrett was voted in 15 years too early. The industry leaders should have been voted in along with Benny Parsons.

Honestly, Danica and Dale Jr. will get voted in before people who actually deserve to get voted in.

Sadly, the last part is very too. As for me, I like the HOF class as well. As long as there are drivers getting inducted to the HOF that deserve it at all, I'm okay with it.

It's unfortunate that guys like Benny Parsons, Joe Weatherly, Bobby Isaac, Raymond Parks and other innovators of the sport aren't in yet. I hope they don't continue to get passed by on the ballot year after year.

I honestly would have voted in Bruton Smith, Wendell Scott, Ralph Seagraves, Benny Parsons, and Anne Bledsoe France. All five of them did a lot for the sport and the image of the sport.

I'm fine with Fireball, Tim Flock, and Maurice Petty. Jack Ingram is understandable because he's got the most wins in Nationwide among drivers who are eligible for the Hall Of Fame. Don't really understand why Dale Jarrett is in there though. I thought it might be because of the same reason for Ingram except in Cup, but Bobby Isaac has more wins, and he was nominated. I was hoping for Red Byron, Raymond Parks, or Wendell Scott to get in.

If anybody in some relation to Smith's business should be voted in, it should be Humpy Wheeler. The guy was the genius behind most of the stuff done with his (Smith's) speedways. It has shown ever since he has retired.

Childress, Hendrick, Ingram, Jarrett, Byron would have been my Picks

If They all have to be Retired: Ingram, Jarrett, Byron, Lorenzen, Anne B France. Flock Would be my Alternate.

Jarrett is more deserving than Rusty Wallace last year... (Which is ironic because a few months ago I was bashing the fact that he was nominated, and I am now supporting him) He won 3 Daytona 500's and 2 Brickyard 400's. He may have only won a single championship, but I wonder how much the 2 Brickyard races he won plays a factor in his induction. Because, (Besides Earnhardt) I believe he is the first 400 winner to be inducted. He was inducted too early, but he would have eventually got in. My only concern is, that the hall of fame will contain every Sprint Cup Series champion. Because in my opinion, Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth, and Bobby Labonte don't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame just because they won a championship.

Way too soon for Childress or Hendrick to get in. Honestly, I'd say Rusty's more deserving if you look at the stats. If we are talking about things they gave back to NASCAR, then I'd say Jarrett. The only things Rusty's given back was his horrible commentary with a ton of bias in it and his god-awful son who should never be allowed to step into a racecar...
