The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization launched in 1978 when Ed Pearlman inducted the first sixteen members including Parnelli Jones, Steve McQueen, James Garner and Don Francisco. In 1995, Rod Hall revived ORMHOF and with the help of a strong board of directors and advisors, the organization and its assets were placed in a permanent home inside the National Automobile Museum, the Harrah Collection in Reno, Nevada.
