There have been many who have called the omission of Connie Francis to the Hall as the biggest crime the Hall committee has done thus far. We don’t necessarily agree with that, but we don’t completely disagree that she was the template that other female Pop stars followed.

    Robert “Red” Byron’s career lasted all of fifteen races, of which he won two, due to health issues from injuries he had sustained in World War II.  But he made the most of those opportunities, winning both the very first NASCAR modified championship in 1948 and first NASCAR Stock Car Championship in 1949.  He has already been a three time…
