Who is Getting Honored

Janet Guthrie: Landmark Award

Janet Guthrie will be presented with the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions to NASCAR. Guthrie was a pioneer for females in motorsports as she was the first female to qualify for both the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500. She finished an impressive 12th in her Daytona 500 debut in 1977. She went on to record 5 top-10 finishes in 33 Cup Seris starts.

Donnie Allison: Driver

Donnie Allison is a member of the famed “Alabama Game”, and he is the brother of 84-time race winner and Hall of Famer, Bobby Allison. While Donnie only won 10 races, he only competed in 248, giving him a better winning percentage than 2000 NASCAR Cup Series Champion, Bobby Labonte.

Chad Knaus: Crew Chief

Chad Knaus got his start as a pit crew member for Jeff Gordon’s “Rainbow Warriors” in the 1990s. He reached legend status in the 2000s as the crew chief for Jimmie Johnson. The pairing won 81 races and 7 Cup Series Championships. Now, Knaus works as an executive with Hendrick Motorsports

Jimmie Johnson: Driver

Jimmie Johnson joins the Hall of Fame after becoming the third driver in history to win 7 Cup Series Championships. He won 83 races in the iconic Hendrick Motorsports #48 car, and he and Knaus made for an iconic pairing. Johnson is still racing to this day, and he will compete in at least nine races for the race team he now co-owns, Legacy Motor Club.

The Hall of Fame induction ceremony should be a fun event. What are you most excited to see at the ceremony?
