Bobby Labonte Statement on Brother Terry Being Voted into NASCAR Hall of Fame

The NASCAR Hall of Fame announced Wednesday that two-time Sprint Cup Series champion Terry Labonte would be inducted into the Hall as a member of the Class of 2016. Bobby Labonte, Terry's younger brother and also a Sprint Cup Series champion, commented:

 

"Obviously, this is a really proud day for the Labonte family. I think back to when we were kids racing quarter midgets, and I always just wanted to do what Terry was doing and be like him. He kind of blazed the trail as he advanced through different series, and I was fortunate to follow in his footsteps. I never would've thought way back then that we'd both grow up to be Sprint Cup champions and now one of us is in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. It's a pretty special day."
