NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee spotlight: Jerry Cook

When NASCAR announced its second class of nominees up for induction into the Hall of Fame recently, Jerry Cook became the second driver from NASCAR's Modified ranks to receive a nomination, following Richie Evans who was one of the inaugural 25 nominees and is nominated again this year.

Cook and Evans went head to head in what turned into quite the rivalry between the two Rome, N.Y., drivers in modified racing.

After beginning his racing career at the age of 13, Cook made a name for himself in NASCAR's Modified division by claiming six NASCAR Modified championships, including four-straight between 1974 and 1977. His other two championship came in the consecutive years of 1971 and 1972 after runner-up showings in 1969 and 1970. Cook's career included 1,474 modified starts with 342 wins.
