The five Inductees’ widespread accomplishments cover a number of arenas in the sport including off-road racing, and acting as pioneers of the industry, journalism and advocacy. Their legacies will be celebrated and displayed for the public, in Gallery Four within the famed National Automobile Museum – the Harrah Collection – located in Reno, Nev. They join names synonymous with the sport including Parnelli Jones, Malcolm Smith, Rob MacCachren, Larry Roeseler, Walker Evans, and Rod Hall, as well as many others who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the sport prosper and grow.
The Induction Class was chosen by an eighteen-member voting panel on the basis of significant contribution to off-road motorsports- beyond wins and sport affiliation.
All nominees must have at least fifteen years of experience and involvement, as well as have built, designed, driven, maintained, owned, prepared, piloted, promoted, or ridden an off-road vehicle or supported the off-road industry. They are characterized by their desire to win, the mastery of their field, and their courage to innovate. Each Inductee has made a significant contribution to off-road motorsports in at least one of the following aspects: Business, History, Design, Engineering, Prestige of the Sport, and/or Growth of the Sport.
This year’s Induction Ceremonies will introduce a new venue, as the Inductees will be honored Sunday, November 2, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the South Point Hotel and Casino. For further information, visit the ORMHOF website: www.ormhof.org or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
