CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Due to the inclement weather conditions in the Charlotte region, the NASCAR Hall of Fame has postponed Friday’s scheduled induction ceremony.
The NASCAR Hall of Fame will remain open on Friday, Jan. 22. Due to the anticipated ice and snow accumulations during the course of the day, the venue will close early at 2 p.m. ET. The induction ceremony scheduled for Friday evening will be moved to Saturday, Jan. 23 beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET and will be aired live on NBCSN, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The event will also be streaming on NBC Live Extra. The induction dinner will be adjusted to a luncheon format on Saturday at the Charlotte Convention Center beginning at 1 p.m. ET.
Activities that were scheduled for Friday leading up to the induction ceremony such as Hall of Famer autograph sessions and the Red Carpet event will be canceled altogether.
In addition, Fan Appreciation Day activities including autograph sessions and programs will be canceled for Saturday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The venue will have a delayed opening at 12 p.m. ET and will honor the free admission that Fan Appreciation Day offers guests. The venue will close at 5 p.m. ET.
For those guests who secured autograph session tickets, the venue is exploring options to accommodate fans, which will be announced by the end of next week. Due to the complexity of NASCAR and driver schedules, unfortunately the Hall will not be able to reschedule a complete day of Fan Appreciation Day programming.
