#MTSEMA18: Class of 2018 Inducted into Off-Road Motorsports Hall of FamePosted in News on October 30, 2018
Every year a group of legends in the off-road industry are inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF). The process starts with a nomination from someone in the industry. A committee of people in the industry then vote on those nominations and just a few are selected for induction. The requirement is that person must have contributed to off-road motorsports in at least one of the following aspects: business, history, design, engineering, or growth of the sport.
The 2018 induction ceremony took place at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas, a day before the official opening of the SEMA Show. The attendees included a who’s who of motorsports. Past inductees attended, and the top names in motorsports were there. We spotted former SCORE President Sal Fish along with current SCORE President Roger Norman. Racing legend Curt LeDuc was in attendance. Our own Jp Magazine editor Rick Péwé took time out of his busy schedule to be at the ORMHOF event.
The class of 2018 inductees included 11-time Baja motorcycle winner Johnny Campbell. Trophy Truck racer Cameron Steele was inducted. Steele is known for going down to Baja and giving back by raising money for orphanages. Inductee Jim Bramham has been long known as a land use advocate. Mark McMillin has been in the desert racing trucks and buggies for decades with his family. He finally received his induction rights into ORMHOF at the ceremony. Robbie Pierce has done wonders for motorsports as a whole with Impact Safety, changing the game with safer helmets and race suits. Another deserving inductee is Ed Robinson. Robinson is a grassroots race promoter who started Vorra Off-Road racing in Northern California. In addition to the inductions, Impact awards were also given out. Categories included desert, short-course, rock sports, moto, industry, and advocate.
