I almost cried seeing that BP didn't get in. He was one of the nicest guys ever to step foot in a garage, not to mention 1973 champion, 1975 Daytona 500 winner, with 21 wins, 20 poles, and 0 DNQ's after running 526 races over 21 years.
You got that right mate!

I can only guess that NASCAR don't want the roots of the sport to be widely known, for fear of upsetting the politically correct brigade.
