The NASCAR Cup Series held their annual Hall Of Fame reception on Friday where Matt Kenseth, Kirk Shelmerdin and Hershel McGriff were inducted as the 2023 Hall of Fame Class.
Matt Kenseth, who won 39 races in 18 seasons in the Cup Series commented saying:
I always looked at my career as a ladder. “You start at the bottom, and you hope you climb your way to the top. My ladder had hundreds and hundreds of rungs on it, and without any of them—bottom, middle or top, wherever you sit—I wouldn’t be standing here without any of you.
“So, really, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all.”
