DETROIT (KMOX) – A member of Missouri’s “first family” of racing is headed to racing’s equivalent of Cooperstown.
The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America picked Arnold, Mo. native Rusty Wallace for its 2014 induction class.
A NASCAR Cup title winner in 1989, Wallace won 55 top-tier NASCAR races during his career that began on short tracks across the United States.
He’s now a motorsports broadcaster for ABC and ESPN.
Other 2014 inductees will include: Ole Bardahl, Raymond Beadle, John Bishop, Ricky Graham, Arie Luyendyk, and Marshall Teague.
The Detroit-based Motorsports Hall of Fame recently announced plans to relocate to Daytona Beach, Fla. by 2016.
