"Racers of Yesterday, Legends Forever"

In an effort to preserve the area's rich racing history, NYSSCA installed its own Hall of Fame in 1984. The Hall honors not only drivers, but also owners, officials and others dedicated to the sport of local stock car racing. The inductees are selected by the general membership for consideration and then chosen by a selected Hall of Fame Committee. The yearly Hall of Fame inductees are announced at the annual awards banquet. The NYSSCA Hall of Fame has a permanent home at the Racing Across New York exhibit in the  Saratoga Automobile Museum in Saratoga Springs, New York. The Museum is located on the Avenue of the Pines in the Saratoga Spa State Park.
