CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Rusty Wallace will headline the fourth class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and his famed car "Midnight" will be part of his induction.
Wallace, winner of 55 races and the 1989 championship, will be inducted Friday night along with Buck Baker and Herb Thomas; car owner Cotton Owens and crew chief, mechanic and engine builder Leonard Wood.
Midnight will be part of Wallace's display. He drove the car to 13 victories from 1992-94, and led more than 5,000 laps. It ran as both a Pontiac and a Ford for Penske Racing South.
Midnight was restored last year by former crew members from Wallace's team. It will go into the Hall in race-ready condition as a 1994 Ford Thunderbird with the black and gold Miller Genuine Draft paint scheme.
