Did you know Douglas County had a motorcycle racing track? There was a 1/2-mile track near Camargo, Illinois. The items pictured here are on loan from Jay Arnold for the motorcycle exhibit. Jay’s father, Festus Arnold, raced using these bikes on display including a 1947 FL Racer & Hillclimber and a 1960 Factory Racer XLR. Jay also raced using the 1960. There are Douglas County Motorcycle Club and other trophies belonging to both father and son and photographs of both men including Jay racing on the Camargo track. We are getting more items in daily on loan for the exhibit so be sure to stop in and see us! Mon-Fri 10-4 & Sat 11-3 through February. As always, admission is free!
