“Iron Man” Ingram was a short track legend. He won five NASCAR Late Model Sportsman titles (1972, 1973, 1974, 1982 and 1985) and two Xfinity titles (1982 and 1985). He won nearly 150 Sportsman national points races, from 1971 to 1989, never finishing out of the top 10 in final season points. His nickname was well-earned. During Labor Day weekend 1973, he ran a 200-lap race in Columbia, SC, on Thursday night; a 250-lapper in Beltsville, MD, on Friday night, a 300-lapper in Coburn, VA, on Saturday night, a 300-lapper in Maryville, TN, on Sunday, a 500-lapper in St. Paul, MN, on Monday afternoon and a 200-lapper in Nashville Monday night. That’s 1,750 laps of seat time, not counting practice laps, and about 1,500 miles of hauling between tracks. After Ingram retired in 1991, he held the record for most Xfinity wins until Mark Martin surpassed it in 1997. Ingram was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2007 and the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2014.
