Josh Wren Memorial is Saturday at Arlington

ARLINGTON, Minn. – Arlington Raceway hosts the Josh Wren Memorial this Saturday, July 16, paying $1,000 to the winner of the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature.

Fans are asked to wear blue, Wren’s favorite color, to do a “blue out” in the grandstand in his memory.

All regular weekly divisions are on the program along with the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, regional, Allstar Performance State and local track points will be awarded.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 4 p.m. Hot laps are at 6 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m.

Spectator admission is $12 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6-12 and free for five and under. Pit passes are $25.

Wren, who died last November at age 24 of colon cancer, had raced go-karts and later Modifieds at Arlington. He also crewed for his father, IMCA Modified veteran Jerry Wren, for many years.
