On Wednesday, the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte will induct its 2014 class, including Tim Flock, Jack Ingram, Dale Jarrett, Maurice Petty and Fireball Roberts. The induction ceremony is scheduled to get underway at 7 p.m. ET and may be seen live on FOX Sports 1. Below, is the first in a series of Hall of Fame profiles, this one featuring Tim Flock:

Flock was a two-time champion in NASCAR’s top division in the early days of the sports. As a matter-of-fact, he was around at the beginning, competing in five of the eight races in NASCAR’s first season (1949). In all, he claimed 39 wins in 187-race starts, with the first of those wins coming in 1950. He claimed his first championship two years later, posting eight wins in 33 races in 1952. Flock was dominant in his second championship run, winning 18 of the 39 races in which he competed in 1955. Those 18 victories stook as a single-season record until Hall of Famer Richard Petty posted 27 victories in 1967. Also in 1955, Flock earned the distinction as the only winner of a NASCAR sports car race, winning the only one ever held.

Flock truly came from a racing family. In 1949, he, along with brothers Bob and Fonty Flock and sister Ethel Flock, became the only four siblings to compete in the same NASCAR race.

Flock, who ran his final race at NASCAR’s top level in 1961, was named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest drivers in 1998. He died that same year, fewer than two months before what would have been his 74th birthday.
