Pritchett joins his late father Swayne Pritchett in being elected to the Hall. In his career he won more that 800 races, according to racing historians and is considered one of the best ever at both preparing a car and driving one.
Long-time car owner Gerald Voyles, who won 66 features in a little over two seasons with Pritchett wheeling his cars, said Pritchett was both a talented racer and a true gentleman.
“C.L. Pritchett is the most talented person I’ve ever known,” Voyles said. “And more importantly, he was a first-class person. He always took good care of my girls at the race track. There is no one more deserving of being in the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame than C.L. Pritchett.”
