The final selection process for the 2018 NASCAR Hall of Fame began Wednesday with the rollout of the Fan Vote. Fans have an opportunity to vote up to 50 times per day for the five best candidates out of 20 nominated for next year’s class.
Open from now through May 22, the top five most popular nominees, as selected by the fans will each then earn one vote during Voting Day. They’ll play a small part of the overall process when a select group of experts from across the NASCAR spectrum come together in secret to choose the Class of 2018. The Fan Vote will count for a little less than 2 percent overall as 54 total votes are cast by the panel.
The nominees for the 2018 NASCAR Hall of Fame all have storied careers as drivers, crew chiefs, broadcasters, owners and promoters. As in years past, the nominees are not just constrained to NASCAR’s top levels. Everyone from lower-level legends to top-tier Cup competitors are eligible for nomination each year.
The 20 nominees include legends of the sport in all its forms. Some notables include 1992 Daytona 500 winner Davey Allison, 1992 Cup champion Alan Kulwicki, driver turned broadcaster Buddy Baker, legendary short track owner and play-by-play man Ken Squier, and Modified ace Mike Stefanik.
