Gentlemen, Vroom, Vroom

Celebrating fathers whose sons may well join them someday and a dad and little dude joined today, NASCAR announced its first Hall of Fame class.

In a May 2010 ceremony, Bill France Sr. and Jr. (the folks behind the success of NASCAR itself); will be enshrined along with Saint Dale "father of besainted Dale Jr." Earnhart; Richard Petty (father of current antagonist and probable future HOFer Kyle Petty); and Robert Glenn "Junior" Johnson, whose son racing Robert (no connection to bluesman Robert) Johnson is taking to the track while still in high school.

Fathers, sons and cars are such a natural fit, perhaps there is no need for a special HOF when pretty much any garage in any suburb could do just as well?c
