It marks the year they were inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. Open Wheel legend Mario Andretti is a member of the Class of 1990, for example.
People active in multiple motorsports disciplines are good At Large candidates. Team owner Roger Penske (Class of 1995) is a good example. He has won multiple Sports Car, Stock Car and Open Wheel championships, and has owned racetracks. At Large is also for candidates from outside the main categories.
We don’t have children’s activities, but we welcome kids of all ages. In fact, we get many young visitors each summer. Having your son’s or daughter’s photo taken in our “door car” is a don’t-miss highlight. It’s a real NASCAR Cup Series chassis that kids can sit in just like their heroes.
To be considered for induction, candidates must have been retired for a minimum of three years or have contributed at the top level of their respective discipline for at least 20 years.
