First of all i agree with selection of these three men who poured out their heart and soul to making Nascar the great sport it is....But, where is two time championship 75 & 76 L.D. Ottinger...who won hundreds of Nascar Nationwide Races and finished in the top ten points standings 14 seasons second only to Jack Ingram's 17....Tommy Houston was inducted last year and he never won a championship...Even though I love Tommy and his entire family....L.D. should be in the NMPA Hall of Fame before Tommy....Butch Lindley is in there and L.D. won a lot more Nationwide races than Butch....Yes, Butch was a great short track driver but, L.D. exelled on all tracks including the road courses he finished 5th and 2nd at Road Atlanta and finished 2nd at Riverside....He won his last race at Bristol in 1990 with Dale Jarrett 2nd, Mark Martin 3rd, Kyle Petty 4th, and Dale Earnhardt 5th...L.D. was 51 years old at the time.....Why is L.D. not in the Hall of Fame....I wonder if politics has anything to do with it.....
