Glen Helen Raceway has partnered with the White family to honor motorcycle industry icon Tom White with a memorial ride day and life celebration on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Glen Helen Raceway will be open on Saturday, November 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Glen Helen and the White family will honor Tom’s life in a trackside ceremony at 11:00 a.m. The White family invites all friends and motocross enthusiasts to attend Tom’s memorial ride day. All entry fees will be waived in Tom’s honor, but the White family will accept donations to the Early Years of Motocross, which will be distributed among several of Tom’s favorite charitable organizations.
“Tom loved Glen Helen Raceway, both the facility itself and its incredible staff,” says the White family. “Whether it was announcing the REM Series races every weekend, organizing the World Vet Motocross Championship, or working with track owner Bud Feldkamp to procure the AMA National or USGP events, Tom’s second home was that racetrack. Our family thanks the owner and operators of Glen Helen for honoring him with a wonderful day of riding to celebrate his life and the motorcycle community he loved so dearly. We mourn the loss of an incredible human being, we also celebrate his life, his achievements, his passion for motorcycles, and his love of friends and family. We hope that Tom’s life story serves as inspiration to everyone that fierce determination and good will can yield a life extraordinarily well lived.”
