The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) recently announced the 2013 Class of Inductees. The late Larry Bergquist, Bob Chandler, Frank DeAngelo, Jerry Herbst and Bob “The Weatherman” Steinberger will have their names added to the venerable list of those who have committed their lives to the off-road community.

The five inductees’ extensive accomplishments cover a number of arenas in the sport including off-road racing, pioneers of the industry and for the first time: special achievement.

Their legacies will be celebrated and displayed for the public in Gallery Four within the famed National Automobile Museum – the Harrah Collection – located in Reno, Nev. They join names synonymous with the sport including Parnelli Jones, Malcolm Smith, Steve McQueen, James Garner, Walker Evans, Rod Hall as well as many others who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes making the sport prosper and grow.

The induction class was chosen by a sixteen member voting panel on the basis of significant contribution to off-road motorsports beyond wins and sport affiliation.

All nominees must have at least fifteen years of experience and involvement and have built, designed, driven, maintained, owned, prepared, piloted, promoted, ridden an off-road vehicle or supported the off-road industry. They are characterized by their desire to win, the mastery of their field and their courage to innovate.
Each Inductee has made a significant contribution to off-road motorsports in at least one of the following aspects: Business, History, Design, Engineering, Prestige of the Sport, and/or Growth of the Sport.

The Inductees will be honored Friday, October 4th in conjunction with the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo in Pomona, California.

Andy Chandler was lucky enough to get his hands on a buggy that previously belonged to Andrew Buck of Buckshot Racing. This X3 is unique, fast, and it looks nicer than ever thanks to Andy's hard work.
