RENO, NV   OCTOBER 22, 2010 – The Silent Auction benefitting the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) at the 2010 Off-Road Expo was a success. “It was a three way win,” said Bob Bower, Executive Director of the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame.  “The people who donated did so out of the goodness of their hearts and really felt good about doing it.  Secondly, we had some rare or one of a kind items that increased competition among bidders which helped to increase the bidding activity benefitting the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame, and lastly, the winning bidders got to go home with a part of Motosports History at some astounding bargain prices.”

There were some amazing items up for bid including a complete set of Ford Rough Rider posters from the early 90’s that were nicely framed and auctioned off as a single bid item.  One of the hottest bid items was a full set of Mint 400 Jim Beam Decanters.  Mike Doherty, Class 8 Privateer off road racer, drove all the way from Tucson to bring them to the auction wrapped in towels and stowed in a cardboard box.  Special thanks goes to Richard Winchester of BFGoodrich and Jack Cummings from Goodyear who each donated a set of tires that generated high bids.

The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame is a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization that is proud to be debt free.  With an extremely low overhead and a volunteer staff, 98% of every dollar received goes directly to work to keep operations moving forward. The goal for the organization is to be self-sustaining and to continue the preservation of the heritage of our sport.
