NASCAR has announced 2022 NSCHoF Inductees. Here is the list of Top Class NASCAR drivers. From Bob Frey to Tony Stewart
Tony was voted in the “Drivers” category, but could effectively have been nominated in several categories. He was the first driver to win the USAC Triple Crown in a single season, and has also recorded wins with the World of Outlaws, All Stars and several other series. As an owner, he has accumulated well over 300 wins with the World of Outlaws, nine WoO titles, 11 Knoxville Nationals wins and five King’s Royal wins.
Few sprint car drivers in the 1970’s and 1980’s had anything for Bob on the pavement. The five-time winner of the “Little 500” racked up wins from Sandusky to southern Florida on a regular basis. Driving the Ensign #37, the Durnwald #92 and finally Glen Niebel’s potent V6, Bob stormed to victory with USAC and several other series. Bob’s most impressive win in Anderson was probably in 1989, when he came from seven laps down to take it all.
Eric has an all-time record nine “Little 500” wins in his 22 career starts. His 30-year sprint car career was prolific and successful. He finished second in the USAC National Sprint Car standings in 1989, just his third year behind the wheel. His battles with fellow inductee Robbie Stanley were epic the next two years as he finished second those seasons as well. Among his many wins were 13 in USAC competition.
Terry followed his father Elmer’s success into the sprint cars. By 1980, he won his first World of Outlaws event at his hometown Riverside Speedway. By the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Terry was a consistent winner with the NCRA, USA and WoO series. In 1995, he was the first ASCS National champion, and he followed that with three more! In those four seasons, he amassed 43 wins. In 2001, he started what has been an outstanding driving career with the USCS series. He has amassed 13 championships to date, and is the all-time leading feature winner.
In less than twenty years behind the wheel of a sprint car, Tim amassed well over 200 feature wins. The Californian struck at venues across both the United States and Australia. Tim was a Knoxville Raceway champion twice, was the 1979 Western World champion at Manzanita, won three Skagit Dirt Cup events, and was a two-time NARC and Golden State titlist. His 1992 trip to Australia with owner bob Trostle netted 11 wins in 17 starts.
