LEBANON, Ore. – Top Late Model racers will have a chance to honor a Northwest racing icon on Saturday at Willamette Speedway. In addition, there are 5,000 other benefits to winning.

After an absence dating to 2018, the Clair Arnold Memorial – formerly known as the Clair Cup – returns Saturday, September 4 to the 1/3-mile dirt oval in Lebanon. The event is named for Clair Arnold, who built the track in 1966 and operated it for decades along with wife Evelyn. Clair passed away in April 2009 at the age of 81. The Arnold family sold the track at the end of 2010 to the Schram family, the current track owners.

Saturday’s main event for dirt Late Model racers pays $5,000 to win. The race is 81 laps, in honor of Clair’s age when he passed. Evelyn Arnold is scheduled to present the check to the winning driver Saturday night.

Skyline Ford and the Donofrio family are presenting the race, with additional sponsorship from Marc Nelson Oil Products and Green Acres Landscape.

Support classes on Saturday include IMCA Sport Modifieds, Super Sports, Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Compacts. A Sportsman has been added to replace the IMCA Modified event, freeing up Modified competitors to compete in a $7,000-to-win event in Medford.

Pit gates open at 2 p.m., front gates open at 4, and on-track activity is set to commence at 6. Advanced tickets can be purchased online at https://market.myracepass.com/store/tickets/?i=1259439&store=10311. Tickets will be sold the day of the race when the front gates open at 4 p.m., but are CASH ONLY. There is an ATM located on site.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $12 for military/seniors (62+) and juniors (13-17), $5 for youth (ages 6-12), while children five and under are admitted for free. A Family Pass (two adults, two youth) is $40. Pit passes are $40, as is the car and driver fee. For more information, log onto the track website (trophymotorsports.com) or follow the Willamette Speedway Facebook page.
