AUCTION RAISES MONEY FOR ORMHOF
Max Gordon Steals the Show!
Host Ricky Johnson shares bidding strategy with 9-year old Max Gordon, son of racing star Robby Gordon, grandson of Legacy Inductee Bob Gordon.
On of many highlights during the 2017 Induction & Awards Ceremony came when young Max Gordon took to the stage during the live auction, in an attempt to place the winning bid on a custom made racer t-shirt quilt.Host Ricky Johnson had to encourage other bidders to bid against the young Gordon, reminding them that in a couple of years, Max would be ‘knocking their back bumpers off’.

Johnson’s strategy seemed to work, sparking some lively bidding. Max eventually prevailed, and placed the winning bid.

Thank you to all of our auction bidders and donors.
