Meet some of the NASCAR Hall of Fame nominees in person

 The NASCAR Hall of Fame has been inviting some of the nominees for the next Hall of Fame class to drop by the Hall and visit with those in attendance. Already this month, Bobby Allison, Jack Ingram and Ned Jarrett have visited the Hall. Richard Childress and Dale Inman are at the Hall today for a 1 p.m. appearance.

The visits coincide with voting season for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Once a year, a panel of experts convenes to vote on the next five inductees for the Hall. In addition, race fans can vote on http://www.nascar.com/ through the end of September on who they think should be nominated. The next class of inductees will be announced at 4 p.m. Oct. 13.

Also coming up this month at the Hall is a joint appearance by Rick Hendrick and Darrell Waltrip on Sept. 21. They will tell stories and take questions from Hall guests. In addition that day, the documentary film, "Together: The Hendrick Motorsports Story", will show every two hours in the Belk High Octane Theater and is included with NASCAR Hall of Fame general admission.
