The nominees for the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame will be announced Thursday and Speed will be on the scene in Charlotte.
Speed will air an exclusive one-hour special Thursday July 2 at 8 p.m. (ET). Hosted by motor sports broadcaster Ken Squier, NASCAR Hall of Fame: The First Class will note the 25 nominees and feature appearances from NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France and NASCAR Hall of Fame executive director Winston Kelly.
The NASCAR Hall of Fame is scheduled to open next May.
"There are a limited number of ‘firsts' in any area of life," said Speed president Hunter Nickell in a statement. "So, being able to work with NASCAR and the NASCAR Hall of Fame to bring fans a true first in their favorite sport is a real honor and a lot of fun for everyone at Speed."
