SAN DIEGO (Sept. 5, 2014) — The first annual Off-Road Legends Rally to benefit the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) will be held Oct. 18 in Anza, Calif.
The event is being billed as a day of off-roading, great food and fun to raise funds for the ORMHOF. The sponsors—Mad Media, Off-Road Management Group and Racing For Life—have lined up off-road racing legends including Walker Evans, Rod Hall and Larry Roeseler to guide rides, sign autographs and meet participants. The rally will be staged at the Buttes and Saddles Ranch, nestled in the foothills above the Anza Borrego Desert.
“Our mission is to preserve, celebrate and share the culture of off-roading. The Legends Rally event format let's us do just that,” said Rod Hall, founder of the ORMHOF. “Come out and have a great time while raising funds for a good cause.”
The rally will feature three desert and mountain loops for street legal off-road vehicles and bikes and is a non-race pleasure ride. Participants can ride along with the “legends” to the top of nearby Thomas Mountain with 100-mile views of Southern California or can ride along into the upper edge of the Anza Borrego State Park to Bailey's Cabin.
The Buttes and Saddles Ranch facility features fishing, hiking and a one-mile UTV and bike loop for riders to test their off-road skills, according to rally promoters. Limited camping and RV parking is available on a first-come-first-serve basis for an additional fee. Space is limited to just 200 guests.
More information about the rally—sponsored by Rigid Industries—is available on its website.
The ORMHOF was established to recognize and honor individuals and organizations whose lifelong contributions to off-road motorsports have set a standard for others to follow, promoters said.
