Both put on their best performances competing in a Pit Stop Challenge, RC Challenge, Fanify Challenge and Trivia Challenge, testing their NASCAR prowess, creativity, originality and NASCAR knowledge.

Not only did Chester and Darin each win a custom Ford Hall of Fans varsity jacket, they each also won a new Ford Vehicle of their choice! Darin is leaning towards a family vehicle, while Chester is leaving the decision up to his wife. Each wins a trip to Charlotte in early 2019 to attend the NASCAR Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

As Chester and Darin are inducted into the Ford Hall of Fans, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will also be inducting Jeff Gordon, Jack Roush, Roger Penske, Davey Allison and Alan Kulwicki on Feb. 1.

Our two new Ford Hall of Fans Winners beat out more than 8,000 entrants in a contest that narrowed down the field in a fan vote then sent the six finalists to compete in Miami. Check out the six finalists’ journey at Ford Championship Weekend at www.NASCAR.com/Ford.
