Mission The Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame has been established to recognize and honor those individuals and organizations whose lifelong contributions to off road motorsports have set a standard for others to follow H istory Off road racing has a rich history and so does the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame In 1967 Ed Pearlman formed the first recognized sanctioning body dedicated exclusively to off road racing The National Off Road Racing Association NORRA The inaugural event produced by NORRA was the Mexican 1000 soon to become the legendary Baja 1000 After Pearlman stepped back from the role of off road racing promotion he dedicated his energy to recognizing and honoring those who had greatly contributed to the sport In January 1978 at the annual Off Road Equipment Association OREA banquet he inducted the first 16 members which included Parnelli Jones Steve McQueen James Garner and Don Francisco Pearlman introduced a second group of five inductees in 1980 Despite Pearlman s noble attempts to properly honor the sport and its inductees he was unsuccessful in finding a credible permanent home for ORMHOF Enter Rod Hall In 1995 racing legend Rod Hall acquired the remaining assets and name rights of NORRA Sifting through the boxes containing Pearlman s records and the memorabilia accumulated over the nearly thirty years since NORRA was formed he came across the remnants of Pearlman s efforts to establish an Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame Hall intrigued by the historical significance of such a find set out to bring Pearlman s vision to reality Rod brought together a strong board of directors and advisors with a clear mission to promote the sport of off road through the preservation of its rich history and traditions

Competition Off Road Racing In 1973 automotive journalist Hal Higdon published his book Finding the Groove This book was based on 27 interviews of the greatest race car drivers of the time and included drivers like Mario Andretti Richard Petty Don Garlits Bobby and Al Unser and Don Prudhomme Selected to represent off road racing was Bobby Ferro How did he earn this distinction It all started in 1963 at Bud Ekins Triumph motorcycle shop in Sherman Oaks California Bud Ekins was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979 Ferro started working at the shop as a mechanic when he was just 16 years old That same year racing a Triumph Tiger Cub 16 year old Ferro entered his first race a Checkers MC District 37 event where he finished 109th Ferro wrenched on bikes during the day and rode his Triumph through the Santa Monica Mountains the rest of the time where he honed his skills blasting along the fire roads and jumping his way through newly subdivided land in the hills Riding with Ekins and often joined by Hollywood legend Steve McQueen McQueen was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the inaugural Class of 1978 Ferro became a member of the fastest desert club the Checkers Soon Ferro was winning desert races His last race on a bike in 1970 was the World s Championship Checkers Hare and Hound where he finished 1st by twelve minutes In 1970 Ferro purchased a bare Funco Wampus Kitty chassis from Ekins and built the car himself entering his homebuilt rig in the 1970 Baja 500 By the halfway point he was leading overall on time but a rollover put him back to 4th at the finish Not a bad showing for his first race on four wheels Ferro went on to enter the 1970 Mexican 1000 where he finished 2nd During the 1970s Bobby Ferro would become one of the most dominant racers our sport has ever seen with twenty five 4 wheel overall wins There wasn t a major race that Ferro didn t win including two Mexican 1000s four Baja 500s two Mint 400s three California 400s and the 1974 SCORE Championship In 1976 one of Bobby s sponsors suggested letting a relatively unknown driver share driving duties at the Baja 500 Ferro agreed to give the driver a shot and the two of them went on to overall the race helping to launch the driver s career That driver s name Ivan Stewart ORMHOF Class of 2006 In 1971 before there was an Ironman award the NORRA Mexican 1000 required a driver change at the halfway point Ferro petitioned NORRA to let him drive solo Ferro got the go ahead and proceeded to win the race becoming the first driver to ever solo the 1000 Ferro broke new ground when he asked journalist and racer Judy Smith ORMHOF Class of 2008 to race the 1978 Mexicali 350 with him in a two seat buggy While not an unknown commodity Judy had been the first woman to solo the 1000 in 1972 not too many drivers were looking for women as their co riders Bobby Ferro respected Judy as a smart and tough woman who could handle it That fact that she weighed 90 pounds didn t hurt either and the two went on to a historic overall victory in the Tracy Valenta Party Ice Class 2 Funco Ferro s performance got the attention of Scott McKenzie ORMHOF Class of 2005 who asked him to join the Sandmaster team Driving a Funco SS1 manufactured by Gil George ORMHOF Class of 2007 the Sandmaster team with Ferro behind the wheel was the team to beat in off road racing throughout the 1970s After McKenzie sold Sandmaster Ferro moved to the Modern Motors Team and later would be reunited with McKenzie at the Tracy Valenta ORMHOF Class of 2016 Party Ice team Besides winning Bobby Ferro was also a strong safety advocate His day job as a Hollywood stunt man made him especially interested in safety After seeing Sprint car drivers killed or seriously injured and losing arms in rollovers Ferro started racing with leather straps tied to his arms which he later replaced with window nets Ferro petitioned race organizers to make arm restraints and window nets mandatory He persisted until the improved safety measures were put into effect
