NASCAR Cup Series champions Kurt Busch and Kevin Harvick, winners of nearly 100 premier division races, including the Daytona 500 and other crown jewel events, head the West Coast Stock Car/Motorsports Hall of Fame’s five-member Class of 2023.

In addition, the following members were also chosen via two rounds of voting:

  • Matt Crafton, a three-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion and winner of 15 NASCAR national series races
  • Brent Kaeding, a 13-time Northern Auto Racing Club (NARC) sprint car champion and World of Outlaws winner
  • Lyn St. James, International Motor Sports (IMSA) class winner at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring; Indianapolis 500 rookie of the year; and leader of Women in Racing North America. 

The inductees will be enshrined on Thursday, June 8, during an induction gala, presented by World Wide Technology Raceway, at Sonoma Raceway’s Turn 11 Club VIP/Hospitality complex.

The organization will also induct its sixth Heritage class, comprised of individuals whose careers (mostly) ended before 1971. Also featured will be the 3rd Annual Kickin’ Doorz Down Philanthropist of the Year Award presented by 51FIFTY. Additional details are expected next month.
