Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte, a pair of Cup champions, are among the first-year eligible nominees for the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Labonte, who insists his 32nd "Great American Race" will be his last, was running 17th with about three laps to go in a qualifying race Thursday night and looked like he would miss the 500 for the first time since 2010.
