    That's the AP Mike Harris, by the way. Not this one. I've already received one e-mail stumping for a candidate.
    And that's six, not five.

    If David Pearson doesn't make the first class, I'm peeling out of here.

    Sorry, but without David Pearson this isn't a Hall of Fame, it's more like a closet. The reality is they should have inducted a larger class the first couple of years. As it is, many of the sports pioneers may be dead by the time the voting catches up to the top 20 drivers of all time.

    No Cole Trickle or Stroker Ace? Cole won something like six out of seven races his rookie year until that Daytona wreck. :D
    In terms of the non-voters, I would add Mike Mulhern to the list.

    Godwin Kelly should have been the first press voter on the list. He's in Daytona for God's sake.
