Here are the 15 nominees for the NASCAR Hall of Fame class of 2023
15 nominees have been announced for the NASCAR Hall of Fame’s Class of 2023 ballot. This marks the first voting ballot since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Voting is split into three categories. Ten nominees appear on the Modern Era ballot, five on the Pioneer ballot (careers began more than 60 years ago). As voting concludes, two Modern Era candidates and one Pioneer candidate will be elected as the Class of 2023.
62 people sit on the voting board. For this year, those include champion drivers Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott, who were selected as there was no induction 2022 class. A 63 vote is given based on a fan vote.
