Rarely in life does a person get the chance to be a witness to history. Even more rare is the opportunity to be a part of that history as it occurs. Attendees of the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame’s 14th annual induction ceremony got a chance to be a part of both as the world of racing got together on Saturday, Aug. 11 to pay tribute to another group of legends. “I’ve been here since day one, and this is easily one my favorite days of the year,” said Gordon Pirkle, GRHOF president. Beginning in 2002 with the creation of the hall of fame and the induction of its first eight members, from legendary drivers such as Lloyd Seay to media representatives along the lines of James Mosteller, the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame has recognized the contributions of people at all levels of the sport.
