Family Ties: Jarrett, Petty enter NASCAR hall

Charlotte, NC.--(AP) Former Sprint Cup champion Dale Jarrett and master mechanic Maurice Petty headline the latest group of inductees in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Dale Jarrett Wednesday joined his father Ned in the hall while Maurice becomes the fourth member of the storied Petty family to
get in.

Tim Flock won two NASCAR titles in the 1950s and was elected. Jack Ingram was a champion in NASCAR's Late Model Sportsman division, the precursor to what's now the Nationwide Series. The final Hall of Famer was Fireball Roberts, who won 33 times from 1950 until his death in 1964 that came weeks after a crash in Charlotte.

Roberts lost a tiebreaker for the fifth spot a year ago to Buck Baker.

The group will be inducted into the hall in January.
