NASCAR Hall Of Fame Set To Announce Third Class Of Inductees Thursday: Will Darrell Waltrip, Cale Yarborough Make The Cut?

Let's be honest: While the first two classes of NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees have contained some very worthy names, it's silly that Darrell Waltrip and Cale Yarborough aren't in the Hall yet.

Many people were certain Waltrip and Yarborough would make the cut for the second class; because of politics in the voting process – both drivers have rubbed people the wrong way over the years – they didn't make it.

When the third class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame is announced Tuesday in Charlotte (4 p.m. Eastern, live on SPEED), Waltrip and Yarborough will be in it this time.

We think. ... Maybe. ... Right?

If they don't, NASCAR needs to look at the makeup of the voting panels and ask why a pair of three-time champions is being left out.

Who else aside from Waltrip and Yarborough should make the cut? Here are the picks of SB Nation Motorsports Editor Jeff Gluck and SB Nation contributor Jay Pennell.

Gluck's picks

  • Darrell Waltrip
  • Cale Yarborough
  • Dale Inman
  • Buck Baker
  • Herb Thomas
Pennell's picks
  • Darrell Waltrip
  • Cale Yarborough
  • Dale Inman
  • Raymond Parks
  • Red Byron
