NASCAR announced today the second class of inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

That class consists of:
David Pearson - 94%
Bobby Allison - 62%
Lee Petty - 62%
Ned Jarrett - 58%
Bud Moore - 45%

The NASCAR Hall of Fame Voting Panel, consisting of members of the Nominating Committee along with 31 others representing all facets of the NASCAR industry, met in a closed session in Charlotte to vote on this year's induction class.
