Class of 2014 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees named

Jared C. Tilton

Tim Flock, Maurice Petty, Dale Jarrett, Jack Ingram and Fireball Roberts were named as the five inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame Wednesday.

The newest members of the NASCAR Hall of Fame include two former Cup champions, a master engine builder, the sport's first superstar and a short track legend.

Tim Flock (76 percent of all votes)

The top-vote getter, Tim Flock was NASCAR's premiere series champion in 1952 and 1955. His 39 career victories rank 18th all-time and his winning percentage of nearly 21 percent is second only to fellow Hall of Famer Herb Thomas.

Maurice Petty (67 percent)

Maurice Petty was the man who built the engines that propelled his older brother, Richard Petty, to all those wins and champions. But Petty was also responsible for building engines that won races with other drivers including the 1970 Daytona 500 with Pete Hamilton, and he is the fourth member of the Petty Dynasty along with Richard, father Lee Petty and cousin Dale Inman to be elected into the Hall of Fame.

Dale Jarrett (56 percent)

One of the best big-race drivers of his generation, Dale Jarrett notched three victories in the Daytona 500, two in the Brickyard 400 and one in the Coca-Cola 600. In addition he won the 1999 Cup championship and holds 32 wins overall. His father Ned, a two-time series champion, is also a Hall of Fame member (2011).

Jack Ingram (53 percent)

A two-time champion in what is now the Nationwide Series, Jack Ingram retired in 1991 as the all-time winning driver with 31 career victories. He also won three consecutive Late Model Sportsman Division championships -- the precursor to Nationwide -- from 1972-74.

Fireball Roberts (51 percent)

Regarded as NASCAR's first superstar, Glenn "Fireball" Roberts never won a championship but is considered by many as the best driver to never have done so. But like Jarrett, Roberts was as at his best in the marquee events with one win in the Daytona 500 (1962) and victories in 1958 and '63 Southern 500. He made just 206 starts in his career, dying in 1964 of injuries sustained in an accident at Charlotte.

The Class of 2014 will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame Jan. 24, 2014.
