Beginning today, July 28th, fans can log-on to http://www.nascar.com/hall to cast their vote for up to five legends for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. NASCAR fans collectively will represent one of the 51 ballots on the NASCAR Hall of Fame Voting Committee. In an effort to educate fans on the accomplishments of the 25 nominees, videos, photos and bios are available on the site. Fans must register to vote and can only fill out a Hall of Fame ballot one time.
