When the latest class of Hall of Famers came out in February, one of the names on the list was that of Les Richter. And the first words out of my mouth was, "Who?"
I had no idea who the man was and it was a shame. So I looked him up and found he was not only a future Hall of Famer but notable in the world of auto racing.
Richter played in eight Pro Bowls and even served a stint in the army before starting his second career serving as head of operations for NASCAR.
