One of the highlights of the weekend includes the attendance of previous National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductees, making the Friday, July 31, festivities at the museum a “must attend” event. The reception is FREE and open to the public.  We will again be treated to a night of stories from some of the greats of the sport!  Invitations are going out to our inductees soon, so stay tuned for who to expect in Knoxville during Induction weekend and our Friday night festivities! 

Saturday, August 1, will mark the 31st Annual National Sprint Car Hall of Fame induction banquet.  The banquet will begin at Noon, and again be held at the Dyer-Hudson Hall on the Marion County Fairgrounds in Knoxville.  Those individuals being inducted for their career achievements include: Drivers – Greg Hodnett, Tim Shaffer and Jeff Swindell; Owners-Mechanics-Builders-Manufacturers-Car Sponsors – Walt Dyer and Paul Leffler; Promoters-Officials-Media Members-Event/Series Sponsors – Don Lamberti and Spencer Riggs; and Pre-1945 Era – Bill Cummings.  Hall of Famers Dave Argabright and Pat Sullivan will emcee the event.  Following Saturday’s induction, inductees’ families and friends are invited back to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum’s second floor for the unveiling of the new inductees’ plaques.
