2005 West Coast Stock Car Hall Of Fame Inductees Announced

The inductees for the 4th Annual West Coast Stock Car Hall Of Fame induction ceremony July 22, 2005 have been announced by Tim Meyer director of the West Coast Stock Car Hall Of Fame. Fifteen names make up the West Coast Stock Car Hall Of Fame 2005 induction class.

Drivers: Allen Adkins, Len Sutton, Sam Hanks, Dick Meyer, and Ernie Irvin.

Owners-Mechanics-Manufacturers-Sponsors: Bob Estes, Vel Miletich, Floyd Johnson, Tom Hamilton, Leon Ruther, Richard Elder and James Rush.

Promoters-Officials-Media Members-Event/Series Sponsors: Ron Ail, Harry Schilling, and Marion Collins.

We again have a very diverse group of nominees in terms of eras, regions represented, and contributions to West Coast Stock Car Racing. The nominees all share one common element, however, and that is excellence in their given fields of endeavor making each one "worthy" of induction into the West Coast Stock Car Hall Of Fame.

I would also like to mention the recent passing of Hall of Fame members Rodger Ward, Parker "Parky" Nall and Carl Dane. They were truly "worthy" of that honor and will be missed by their friends and those within the sport of Stock Car Racing.
