Alabama’s own Red Farmer, along with six-time Talladega winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mike Stefanik, make up the inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2021.

The Hall of Fame’s 12th class marks the first with three members. In addition, Ralph Seagraves is recipient of the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions to NASCAR.

Farmer, 87, was born in Hialeah, Florida, but is better known as an original member of the famed “Alabama Gang” after relocating and teaming up with fellow Florida-transplants Bobby and Donnie Allison and Alabama’s Neil Bonnett. Farmer, who is estimated to have more than 700 career victories, is still competing on local short tracks and is clearly moved by joining the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
