NASCAR reveals nominees for the 2024 Hall of Fame Class

NASCAR has announced its nominees for the Hall of Fame Class of 2024.

Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet Camaro Lowe's for Pros and Chad Knaus

15 people have been nominated for the Hall of Fame, along with five additional nominees for the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions to NASCAR.

Among them is seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus. Together, they won over 80 Cup races and seven titles -- including an unprecedented five consecutive.

Johnson is now a co-owner at the Legacy Motor Club Cup team, and Knaus is currently the Vice President of Competition at Hendrick Motorsports.

They join the Modern Era ballot in their first year of eligibility, with Donnie Allison joining the list of nominees on the Pioneer ballot for the first time as well. Allison's brother Bobby joined the Hall of Fame in 2011. Donnie started 242 Cup races over 22 years, winning ten races. He was also part of that iconic finish (and fight) at the Daytona 500 in 1979, an event that launched the sport into the national spotlight.

Two candidates from the Modern Era ballot and one from the Pioneer ballot will join the NASCAR Hall of Fame next year.
