CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The wait is over for Cale Yarborough and Darrell Waltrip. On the third try, the championship-winning drivers are headed to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
Yarborough and Waltrip headline the third five-member class announced Tuesday. They're joined by eight-time series champion crew chief Dale Inman, nine-time Modified champion Richie Evans and pioneering driver Glen Wood.
Yarborough won 83 races and three consecutive titles from 1976 to 1978. Only Jimmie Johnson's current streak of five titles is longer.
Waltrip won 84 races, tied for third on the career list. He was the series champion in 1981, '82 and '85. A tearful Waltrip ran to the stage and kissed NASCAR chairman Brian France upon learning he made the hall.
