West Coast Stock Car HoF Confirms 2018 Class

The West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, which announced its 2018 nominees back in November, has released the six-member class of 2018.

The Hall’s 15th class is comprised of President and General Manager of 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Furniture Row Racing Joe Garone, Joe Gibbs Racing senior executive J.D. Gibbs, Southern California racing legend Oren Prosser, two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Greg Pursley and NASCAR and open-wheel car owner Richard “Dick” Woodland.

The late Larry Albedi, a five-decade-long public-address announcer, will be inducted as a member of the media.

Additionally, five Heritage inductees—outstanding figures from the pre-1971 era of competition—will be announced for enshrinement in the coming weeks.

The Class of 2018 will be enshrined June 21 at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, California. The event, presented by Gateway Motorsports Park, again accompanies the annual Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West weekend at nearby Sonoma Raceway.

“It is getting increasingly difficult to select the honorees because the West Coast, over 75 years, has produced so many eligible candidates – literally hundreds,” Ken Clapp, chairman of the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, said. “I salute the tenacity of the voting board and the members of the nominating committee on making these difficult selections.”
