i would like to make a note here in case other folks want to use this solution

you wont see the blur when you render a single frame in the render view window

it will only sow up when you do a render sequence in arnold

@Lee Griggs thank you again for your help here

You could try increasing the Motion Blur Length for regular particles to get a streak effect.
