NEAR Hall of Fame Established 1998
In 1997, NEAR members worked very hard to establish the NEAR Hall Of Fame, the first Hall Of fame in New England for auto racing. The induction banquet was held on Sunday February 1, 1998 at the Carriage House Banquet Hall, West Springfield, MA. A sell-out crowd came to witness the Twelve Legends being inducted into the NEAR Hall Of Fame.
