ORMHOF ON THE MOVE
Hall of Fame Announces Plans for Off-Road Vehicle Display at the Gold Strike in Jean, Nevada
ORMHOF is pleased to announce plans for a display of historic off-road vehicles at the Gold Strike in Jean, Nevada. The Gold Strike is owned by the Herbst family’s JETT Gaming. Herbst family patriarch, Jerry Herbst, was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2013, and Terrible Herbst Motorsports is an ORMHOF Winners Circle partner.
Corky McMillin’s Chenowth MID 1 and Mickey Thompson’s Challenger IV will go on display this Friday, August 4, in conjunction with the SNORE KC HiLites Midnight Special Race. McMillin, Thompson, and KC HiLites founder Peter Brown, are Hall of Fame inductees.
The Hall of Fame will be adding vehicles to the Gold Strike display over the coming months. Gold Strike General Manager, Max Smilow, is excited to welcome an ORMHOF display to the property, which already features a highly popular exhibit of cars from the “Fast and Furious” movie franchise.
“The Gold Strike proudly welcomes a new and exciting display to enhance our vehicle exhibition,” says Smilow, “We are pleased to be a part of off-road racing history, and look forward to working with the Hall of Fame to assemble a fantastic exhibition that pays homage to some of the greatest competitors in the history of off-road. The ORMHOF display will be the perfect addition to our exciting array of movie cars that are located on the casino floor! Make sure you take plenty of pictures!”
ORMHOF WELCOMES TOM WHITE
Early Years of Motocross Museum Founder Joins ORMHOF Board of Directors
ORMHOF chairman Mark McMillin welcomes Early Years of Motocross Museum founder, Tom White, to the Board of Directors.
“He was a unanimous choice,” says McMillin. “Tom has a tremendous appreciation for the history of off road, and motorcycles in particular. He brings decades of knowledge and experience to the board.”
Tom raced on to the Orange County, California motorcycle scene in the 1970s. He co-founded White Brothers Cycle Specialties in 1975, building the company to one of the largest motorcycle parts distribution companies in the US. White sold the business in 2000, to focus on his son, Brad, who was severely injured in an accident. Tom and his wife, Dani, continue to care for Brad, along with around-the-clock caregivers.
The Early Years of Motocross Museum is a testament to Tom’s character. His collection of more than 160 motorcycles is one of the largest displays of its kind in the United States. Tom’s career as a racer, business owner and collector was recognized in 2014, when he was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame.
