2021 Impact Award Honorees Recognized and Voters Choice Announced

2021 Impact Award Honorees Recognized and Voters Choice Announced

The honorees of the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame 2021 Impact Awards presented by 4 Wheel Parts were celebrated as invited guests at the 2021 Induction & Awards Gala at the South Point Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
 
Five Impact Award honorees were selected in each of seven categories of off-road: Desert Racing, Short Course, Rock Sports, Industry, Advocate, MX | ATV, and UTV.
 
The honorees were selected from an extensive list of candidates who were considered for the Impact they made on the sport of off-road during 2020-2021. Candidates in competition categories must have won at least one race during the 2020-2021 seasons to be considered. The ORMHOF board of directors refined the list through a blind voting process, with the five candidates in each category receiving the most votes becoming this year's honorees.
 
 
The voting members of the Hall of Fame selected one honoree in each category as the Voters Choice and those awards were announced the night of the Gala.
