NASCAR plates coming to Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP)_The Alabama Department of Motor Vehicles says racing fans now have 20 vehicle tags featuring 18 current NASCAR drivers to pick from.

They include Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Bill Elliott, Ryan Newman, Michael Waltrip, Matt Kenseth, Jeremy Mayfield, Tony Stewart, Ricky Rudd, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Robby Gordon, Kyle Petty, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Jarrett, Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton. 

The specialty tags also include the late Dale Earnhardt and a special Alabama Gang tag, which may help keep the financially troubled International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum in business.

The museum, which features race cars and memorabilia, has struggled since the state eliminated its $145,000 annual funding in 2003.

The hall, which will induct its latest class tonight at Talladega Superspeedway, will receive $30 dollars per tag. The tags will add $50 to the cost of a normal car tag.

Hall of Fame director Jim Freeman said the tags can be ordered from the probate offices of county courthouses beginning about the middle of May and will take three to four weeks to produce.

He said the lack of funding has not caused the museum to lose any of its current vehicles or miss out on acquiring new one, because they are typically lent or donated.
