So far, Milo Coleman, Dick Moroso and Richard Petty lead the list. Coleman at the age of 24 received the keys to a then brand new 1964 Ford Thunderbolt that he campaigned and won regularly claiming several NHRA titles (Youtube Video of Coleman). Richard Petty, well known for driving the NASCAR #43 Plymouths in the mid-60's ran a 1964 Barracuda with a 426 Hemi and of course rounding out the early inductee's list is Dick Moroso. Moroso, whose name is familiar in the performance aftermarket built a gigantic company that started in his basement back in the 1960's. Dick also ran a Modified Production 1962 Corvette.

Updates and recommendation for inductees can be sent to Harry "The Hat" Laplatte. (9/28/2017)

Roy Hill receives DRHOF.com Inductee plaque at Four-Wide Nationals..........

Marco DeCesaris of the American Racing Performance Museum awarded the 2018 Drag Race Hall of Fame.com Inductee plaque to drag race legend, Roy Hill, yesterday (4/26/18) at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals,

Roy is at the event competing in the highly competitive NHRA Factory Super Stock class. Ironically, his ultra quick 8-second Mustang is quicker then Roy's original Pro Stock cars from the past. Needless to say, technology has come a long way to produce the elapsed times and speeds the car record today.

Marco DeCesaris also runs a eight second late model 2015 COPO Camaro in the NHRA Factory Stock/A category. (4/27/2018)

Gene Altizer added to 2018 DRHOF.com Inductee list...........

Altizer a popular drag racer from Arlington, VA was a fierce competitor back in the day starting off with an A/Gas Anglia, which won its class at the 1963 Nationals championship drag race and got runner-up in Middle Eliminator to “Ohio George” Montgomery. Altizer then moved on to the injected Corvair Funny Car originally owned by Malcom Durham, then a Nova AF/C and finally a Vega F/C run as a team with Carole Henson. Altizer is deserving of inclusion with the other 2018 inductees. (2/5/2018)
