The New England Auto Racers Hall of Fame is a hall of fame for racing-related people in the New England region of the United States. NEAR was established in 1981. The New England Auto Racers Hall of Fame was established in 1998 by the New England Antique Racers.

New England Antique Racers[edit]

The group had approximately 350-400 members and 80 antique race cars as of 2007.[1] The group has been inducting area racers in its hall of fame since 1998.[1] By design, the Hall has no permanent home. Instead, a mobile caravan of induction plaques, antique race cars and memorabilia is displayed at major auto racing shows and events in the region.
