NASCAR 21 HOF Class will take place Jan. 21. 2022
The NASCAR Hall of Fame and NASCAR announced today that the Class of 2021 Induction Ceremony will take place in Charlotte on Friday, January 21, 2022.
Originally scheduled for February 5, 2021, the Ceremony was postponed due to uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. To commemorate the Class of 2021, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will have three days of special events and entertainment.
“We are thrilled to celebrate these legends’ significant accomplishments and contributions to NASCAR alongside their families, friends and fans,” said Winston Kelley, Executive Director of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “The decision to postpone was very difficult but the right thing to do. With the planned evolution from five to three inductees with the Class of 2021, NASCAR and the NASCAR Hall of Fame teams saw an opportunity to take a fresh look at our schedule of events for Induction Weekend and are excited about what we have created. It’s always a special time for each honoree and their families and friends and will be a truly memorable weekend for our fans and guests alike.”
Both the Induction Dinner and Induction Ceremony will take place in the Crown Ballroom at the
Charlotte Convention Center adjacent to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Inductees include Dale Earnhardt Jr., Red Farmer and Mike Stefanik make up the Hall of Fame’s 12th class.
Among the additional events scheduled for Induction Weekend are the Insider Experience, featuring a Q&A session with Class of 2021 Inductees and an Induction Stage photo op; Brunch with Hall of Famers where guests will share a table with a NASCAR legend; and Victory Lap, where the Class of 2020 will share stories and memories about the artifacts from their Hall of Honor exhibits.
Induction of this class brings the Hall’s total number of racing legends to 58. Additionally, Ralph Seagraves will be honored with the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions to NASCAR.
