A winter storm that brought snow and sleet to Charlotte has forced tonight’s NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to be postponed.

The event at the Charlotte Convention Center moves to 2:30 p.m. ET Saturday and will air on NBCSN and be streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra. The event also will be broadcast on radio by Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The induction dinner will become a luncheon at 1 p.m ET Saturday. A Red Capet event has been canceled as well as Hall of Fame autograph sessions that had been scheduled for Friday night.

NASCAR Fan Appreciation Day, an event scheduled for Saturday featuring autograph sessions and programs, also has been canceled. The NASCAR Hall of Fame said a complete rescheduling isn’t possible because of scheduling conflicts for drivers and NASCAR, but the venue is exploring options to accommodate fans who had autograph session tickets. Details will be announced by the end of next week.

The NASCAR Hall of Fame will be open from noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Fan Appreciation Day guests still will be admitted free.

Terry Labonte, Bruton Smith, Jerry Cook, Bobby Isaac and Curtis Turner will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame as its seventh class of five members.
