These include Steve Kelley, Spenser Low, John Marking, and Tim Morton. The celebration for the newest inductees will be held at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 30, 2021, which will also celebrate the 2020 inductees Bob Bower, Dan Bullouch, Danny Foddrill, Jack Johnson, Roger Mears, Cal Wells, and Tom White which was not celebrated due to the pandemic. Steve Kelley became hooked on off-road racing after attending the 1969 Baja 1000. His career spans four decades competing in various classes and winning multiple championships. One of Kelley’s accomplishments is helping establish the rules in SCORE in its early days with ORMHOF Inductee Sal Fish. Spenser Low began racing in 1966 and his company, Low Manufacturing, manufactured 4WD conversion kits for mini-trucks in the 1970s. Low later raced in Class 7 and had a twenty-year career with Nissan as one of its factory drivers, winning SCORE/HDRA Toyota True Grit Awards in 1985,’86. Spenser was also one of the founding members of Tread Lightly and passed away in 2019, leaving a legacy of giving back to the sport he loved so much. John Marking was a shock absorber developer who had a love for desert racing. Working at Jimco Racing in 1988, he began modifying shock absorbers until 1992, where he began his career at Fox Racing Shox. Marking’s achievements in shock development led the way for OE Manufacturers to create off-road vehicles, and he holds more than 40-patents in shock technology and design. TIm Morton holds seven Baja 1000 wins, seven Baja 500 wins, and five San Felipe 250 wins over his career that started in 1983. Winning four SCORE motorcycle points championships and a SCORE Overall Pro Motorcycle points championship, Morton has mentored many Baja racers and started an arrive and drive program “Baja Bound Adventures,” that has lasted for more than 20-years. Most recently Morton and his wife Jennifer coordinated a program to collect and donate used driving/fire suits to Mag 7 and Baja Pits volunteers to help keep them safe during refueling pit stops. SJ
