CONCORD, N.C. – This Friday, Jeff Gordon and the rest of the class of 2019 will officially be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
It marks the 10th annual class of inductees, and with that in mind, the ceremony will not only honor this year’s class, but pay tribute to all 10 classes – 50 inductees in all.
Drivers, celebrities and icons of NASCAR will take the stage to induct the newest class of Hall of Famers, and the full ceremony will be broadcast live on NBCSN, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
The ceremony, which takes place at 8 p.m. ET, will also be livestreamed on NBC Sports Live Extra.
Prior to that, the Hall of Fame inductees and guests will hit the red carpet at the NASCAR Hall of Fame from 4 to 5:30 p.m. That portion of the event is open to fans with a general admission ticket to the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Friday, Feb. 1.
In addition, the following day – Saturday, Feb. 2 – there will be an opportunity to hear from the newest Hall of Famers in the High Octane Theater at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
The event, which is open to the public with a general admission ticket to the Hall of Fame on a first-come, first-served basis, features several “storytelling” sessions. From 12 to 12:35 p.m., the “Jeff Gordon and Friends” portion of the program will take the stage.
Gordon said he’s anxious to get the proceedings underway because he has so many people he wants to thank.
“Being inducted into the Hall of a Fame is a way, really, for me to reflect on what NASCAR and what racing has meant to my life,” he said.
