Hall Of Fame Statements

“I am ecstatic to see Cale Yarborough honored by the NASCAR Hall of Fame for all of his many accomplishments in NASCAR.

“Yarborough’s NASCAR resume is stellar, and includes five victories in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway as well as three consecutive NASCAR Cup titles.

“Cale epitomizes what NASCAR is about and became a legend with his hard charging style and rags to riches story and is very deserving of this honor.

“I would like to extend sincere congratulations to Cale, his wife Betty Jo and their family” –

Chris Browning – President of Darlington Raceway

“Congratulations to Glen Wood, Cale Yarborough, Dale Inman, Richie Evans and Darrell Waltrip — the 2012 inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Each new member played a significant role in establishing the strong and successful foundation that NASCAR enjoys today. It was an honor for me to be nominated with them and I look forward to being at the Hall next January for their induction.” Richard Childress, CEO of RCR Racing
