The Board of Directors of the West Coast Stock Car/Motorsports Hall of Fame is comprised of a broad mix of individuals from inside and outside the motorsports community, each sharing insights from the world of business, law, media and racing. The board’s most public function is voting on each year’s class of inductees. It also oversees the West Coast Stock Car/Motorsports Hall of Fame’s charitable activities as a 501(c)3 non- profit organization.
