NEW INDUCTEES

– Jimmie Johnson: Johnson spent 19 seasons in the NASCAR Cup Series. He joined rarified air in 2016, becoming a seven-time champion alongside Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty. Johnson is also the only driver to win five consecutive championships from 2006-2010. He amassed 83 victories in his career, which is tied for sixth on the all-time wins list alongside Cale Yarborough. Johnson was named to NASCAR’s 75 Greatest Drivers list in 2023. | More on Johnson

– Donnie Allison: A member of the famed “Alabama Gang,” Allison has been an ambassador of the sport for over 50 years. He collected 10 wins in his career, earned Rookie of the Year honors in 1967 and currently owns the best combined finish in the Indy 500/Coca-Cola 600 double with a fourth-place finish at the Brickyard followed by a victory at NASCAR’s longest race in 1970. Allison’s most famed moment came in the 1979 Daytona 500 after crashing on the final lap in a battle for the win with Yarborough. After their cars came to a stop, the two engaged in fisticuffs in the infield. | More on Allison

– Chad Knaus: The man atop the box for Jimmie Johnson, Knaus called the shots for all of Johnson’s seven Cup championships and 81 of his 83 victories. He also served as crew chief for rising star William Byron before taking on a new role as Vice President of Competition for Hendrick Motorsports. Knaus trails only Dale Inman and Leonard Wood for all-time wins by a crew chief. | More on Knaus
