Second Modified Driver To Earn NASCAR’s Top Honor
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 21, 2015) – A contributor to the displays and content of the NASCAR Hall of Fame since before its doors opened, Jerry Cook now has a spot reserved as member.
NASCAR revealed on Wednesday the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2016. Cook was among the five selected from a pool of 20 nominees to receive the sport’s highest honor. Upon induction next January, he’ll be one of just 35 members of NASCAR’s all-time elite.
“I’ve been involved with the NASCAR Hall of Fame ever since it was a patch of dirt, and I’ve helped with getting a lot of the stuff for the displays inside,” Cook said. “It’s going to feel real good to be a member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and not just a visitor or contributor.”
