Dale Jarrett had no idea what crazy things Blake Shelton might say as the country music star inducted him into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
NASCAR will mark a milestone at Richmond International Raceway on Friday night when the Nationwide Series waves the green flag on the 1,000th race in series history.
NASCAR honored a pair of its most famous and successful families with inductions into the Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
It was foolish for Darrell Waltrip to participate in the live broadcast of last year's NASCAR Hall of Fame voting day, when he was publicly humiliated by being snubbed from the five-member second class.
Ingram told a story of winning the track championship at Harris Speedway in Ruffin County by winning the final race of the season, only to have the check for his winnings bounce.
"I took it down there and walked in that door. They handed me five 100 dollar bills - that kept my family going for several months," Ingram said.
