Pearson said that he would've loved to watch risk-taking drivers and owners such as 87-year-old Cotton Owens and the late Raymond Parks be honored ahead of him.
Pearson is a three-time NASCAR champion who is among five all-time greats who'll be inducted into the hall in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday night. The others are champion drivers Bobby Allison, Ned Jarrett and the late Lee Petty, and car owner Bud Moore.
