CHARLOTTE, NC - The 2014 NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony took place Wednesday Night at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in uptown Charlotte. There are five new inductees, including Jack "Iron Man" Ingram. Ingram won 31 races and 5 poles during his 8 year career on the Busch Series, now referred to as the Nationwide Series. He also won the series championship in 1982.
 
“I'm honored to be here tonight. It’s beyond words,” Ingram said. “This is a major lifetime achievement for me. While I've won driving the car, I had plenty of help and support along the way; otherwise I wouldn't be here tonight.”
 
Prior to his Busch Series career, Ingram won three consecutive NASCAR Late Model Sportsmanship Championships in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Ironically, his first win on the Nationwide series came at Hickory and his final win also came in Catawba County.  Overall, Ingram racked up more than 300 NASCAR wins and 12 track championships.
