We thank everyone who took the time to send in nomination forms for consideration for this year’s Hall of Fame class. All nominations that we receive continue to be considered each following year. This is truly a difficult decision because there are so many deserving individuals that have contributed to the sport of racing in the state of Iowa. This year’s class is another great representation of Iowa’s rich racing history!

Unfortunately, due to the continued concerns of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone our 2020 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony until next year. Due to limited seating capacity, social distancing requirements and concern for the health of our guests, we felt we would be unable to have the celebration that we felt our inductees deserved. We will announce a new date for the ceremony at a later date.
We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times and we look forward to honoring our 2020 Hall of Fame Inductees in the future!
