The West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame announced their Class of 2016 prior to Sunday's Sprint Cup Series Good Sam 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

The five-member class -- John Bickford, Mike Duncan, Johnny Key, Al Pombo and Jim Thirkettle – will be inducted on June 23 at the Meritage Resort in Napa, California during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and K&N Pro Series West race weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

Bickford, step-father of four-time Sprint Cup champion and FOX Sports analyst Jeff Gordon, managed Gordon's open-wheel racing years, while also doubling as his agent and tutor throughout his NASCAR career.
