The NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2021 will have to wait at least another year before becoming enshrined in NASCAR’s final place of honor.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sanctioning body announced that the induction ceremony and week of celebration will be postponed until at least 2022.

“Without question, the safety of our inductees, our guests and our staff is the highest priority for us,” said Winston Kelley, NASCAR Hall of Fame Executive Director. “The ongoing public health crisis prohibits our ability to plan for and celebrate these honorees’ landmark achievements as originally scheduled to the fullest extent – with their families, friends and fans present – and in a manner that’s representative of their incredible accomplishments in NASCAR and their contributions to the sport.”

While no official date for the Class of 2021 ceremony has been announced, it’s possible that fans could be treated to a double induction ceremony where then class of 2022 could join the class of 2021 at the same time – a first in the sport’s history.

The Hall recently reopened to fans with enhanced safety measures.

As for the current Class’ exhibit, the Hall stated that the display for the Class of 2020 will remain open until the Class of 2021 is inducted.
