    Should have been in sooner ó whenever he was first eligible. Heís had a better career than most of the drivers already inducted.

    His fan-friendly, personable, out-going personality probably held him back.

    Good to hear he made it to the HF. He was always a great guy to talk face to face with before a race. Good to see a clean racer make it.

    Shame on them if they base it partially on that.

    Thoughts on Clint Smith also getting in?

    I think this Hall of Fame has gotten watered down just like all others sports Hall of Fame's have gotten. Someone is HOF material when you don't even have to think about it. If you have to think about whether or not someone is a Hall of Famer, they're probably not.

    He was very impressive at Lancaster in September. Good pick for HOF.

    Iím assuming you arenít referring to Lanigan, because he is an automatic, no-doubter HOFer. As for other sports, I mostly agree with you. But times change. Eras change. Sports change. I could give many examples of particular famous HOFers who definitely wouldnít be HOFers in their sport in other eras, for various reasons.
