Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame Dick Landfield Helping Hand Award
The ORMHOF Volunteer Award was renamed the Dick Landfield Helping Hand Award in 2022 to honor our friend Dick Landfield, who passed away in 2021. A longtime racer, ORMHOF Class of 2007 inductee, ORMHOF board member, and friend to many in the off-road industry, Dick was a successful businessman with his Fairway Ford dealership. Dick began his off-road racing career driving a Ford Bronco in the 1968 NORRA Baja 500. In 1991 he developed the idea for the sport’s first multi-truck team, the Ford Rough Riders. In 2018, at age 85, Dick teamed up with long-time friend and fellow Hall of Famer Bill Savage to compete in the NORRA Mexican 1000. Billing themselves as Team “O.L.D.” – ORMHOF Loves Dirt – the duo represented the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in a Ford Raptor wrapped in Hall of Fame livery that listed the names of all the Hall of Fame inductees. Dick was known for he generosity and helpfulness to his fellow racers. It was his family’s wish that the ORMHOF Volunteer Award be renamed the Dick Landfield Helping Hand Award in Dick’s honor. The Award is presented annually to an individual who exemplifies Dick’s spirit of helping others.
When he's not setting land speed records or using a machete to cut his way through the jungles of the Darien Gap, Simon enjoys the comparatively tame adventure of racing motorcycles in Baja, and it's Simon's support of his fellow racers in Baja that brought him to the attention of the Hall of Fame. Using his training as a medic, Simon has assisted many injured riders in Baja, some in truly life-threatening situations.
