Press Pass revs up its NASCAR Hall of Fame card offerings by Chris Olds

With the NASCAR Hall of Fame set to open next Tuesday, Press Pass continues to ready cards for its 100-card release celebrating the history of the sport.

The sport’s milestones won’t only be noted in the new museum in Charlotte, N.C., but they’ll also be seen also in packs of racing cards throughout the year. The insert card set, which is broken down into four groups of cards — History of NASCAR, Milestone Moments, Glory Road and Class of 2010 — will include the members of the inaugural class as well.

NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. and NASCAR CEO Bill France Jr. will appear on cards along with seven-time champions Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. as well as legendary driver and owner Junior Johnson. They all will be inducted on May 23.

“The opening of the NASCAR Hall of Fame is huge not only for the city of Charlotte, but more importantly, for the sport of NASCAR and its extremely loyal fan base,” said Tom Farrell, Vice President of Brand Management at Press Pass. “We wanted to do something special with the opening to highlight just how monumental of an event this is. By dispersing the cards throughout all of our NASCAR products, we will continue to highlight the Hall and its inaugural class throughout the year.”

The inserts will be found in Press Pass, Element, Eclipse, Premium, Stealth and Main Event. Press Pass and Element included 10 cards from the History of NASCAR and Class of 2010 subsets. Eclipse had 15 cards from the Milestone Moments and Class of 2010. Premium and Stealth will include 20 cards apiece from the Class of 2010 subset, while Main Event will include the final 25 cards.
