To this point, most of the inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte made their mark in the NASCAR Sprint/Winston Cup Series, but 2014 inductee Jack Ingram made a name for himself in the Late Model Sportsman -- turned Busch (now-Nationwide) Series. Ingram is one of five men -- joining Tim Flock, Dale Jarrett, Maurice Petty and Fireball Roberts -- who will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame on Wednesday evening. The induction ceremony is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday and will be shown live on FOX Sports 1.

Nicknamed the "Iron Man," Ingram was a three-time Late Model Sportsman national champion heading into the first year of the "modern day" Busch Series in 1982. Ingram won his first Busch Series championship in that first year with seven wins and 23 top-fives on the season. After finishing second to rival Sam Ard the next two seasons, Ingram claimed a second series title in 1985. Chances are, Ingram would have won a third, and second-straight, Busch title, had it not been for a two-race suspension in 1986.

In all, Ingram competed in the Busch Series for nine years. During that time, he finished out seasons outside the top-five in the points standings only twice. He claimed a career total of 31 wins in 275 races. He held the record for most Busch/Nationwide Series wins until Mark Martin took over bragging rights in 1997. Today, Ingram is fifth on the all-time series wins list.

"Jack's record was phenomenal, because he was the driver, crew chief, car owner and chief bottle washer on his team for most of his career," the late Jim Hunter, NASCAR's former Vice President of Communications, once said. "He was a no-nonsense, get-in-your face, hard-nosed, fender-scraping racer who took no prisoners on the track."

Ingram was named one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers in 1998. in 2007, he was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega, Ala.
