October 1, 2021 -- The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 Impact Awards in seven categories: Desert Racing, Short Course, Rock Sports, Industry, Advocate, MX | ATV, and UTV.
"UTV was previously part of the MX | ATV category, but due to the overwhelming popularity of UTVs, we decided it was time for them to have their own category," said ORMHOF chairman Mark McMillin.
The 2021 Hall of Fame Impact Awards are presented by 4 Wheel Parts. "I received an Impact Award from the Hall of Fame in 2018," said Joey DiGiovanni, Director of Marketing at 4 Wheel Parts. "The award means a great deal to me."
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.
Chairman McMillin added, "Each of the honorees is invited to be our guest on Saturday, October 30 in Las Vegas at the 2021 Induction & Awards Gala presented by 4 Wheel Parts. That night we'll be announcing the Voters Choice award in each category, as chosen by the voting members of the Hall of Fame."
Ballots were sent out by email on the morning of October 1 to 2020-2021 Hall of Fame members, as well as attendees who have purchased tickets online to this year's Induction & Awards Gala.
