As the NASCAR Hall of Fame begins the process of inducting their inaugural class and 5 will get in we know 2 of the 25 nominees for that honor.
Legendary drivers Bobby Allison and Darrelll Waltrip are on the nominee list. The rest of the 25 will be revealed Thursday night on SPEED.
Allison won 84 Sprint Cup races, 3 Daytona 500's and the Cup Championship in 1983.
D.W. won 84 Sprint Cup races (just like Allison) 3 Cup Championships (1981, 1982 and 1985) and 1 Daytona 500 (1989).
Both had impressive careers and are legendary drivers but would Allison and Waltrip be one of the First Five in?
Those of us at the OSG HQ say the odds are against them but they will get in eventually.
