Bringing Dominating Cars to Michigan
Topics: Racing for Wildlife 200, Steve Arpin, Mikey Kile
BROOKLYN, MI (06-09-10) Steve Arpin won with the car at Texas Motor Speedway and Mikey Kile dominated the race and finished second with the car at Pocono Raceway. Now, both drivers are bringing these same cars back to Michigan International Speedway where the racing grooves are wide on the 2-mile track and anything is possible.
Venturini Motorsports was quickest at the open test session at MIS with Mikey Kile and as an added bonus to the fast car that Venturini Motorsports prepared for Kile; the no. 25 will once again be carrying the colors of Sears Auto Center and DieHard.
Pocono Raceway debuted the first start of the no. 25 team representing Sears Auto Center and DieHard. Kile seemed so close to victory at Pocono and Kile looks to carry the dominating momentum to Michigan Int’l Speedway and drive the no. 25 Sears Auto Center/DieHard to the winners circle.
“I’m very happy that Sears Auto Center and DieHard will be back with us at Michigan International Speedway this weekend and I will be in the same car we raced at Pocono,” said Kile. “This weekend couldn’t come soon enough for me. We tested at Michigan Int’l Raceway a couple of weeks ago and I was fastest at the test and now that we have Sears Auto Center on the hood and a DieHard battery in the car, so there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be even faster on the track.
“I am very fortunate to have Sears Auto Center and DieHard behind me. It is an honor to represent them and all their stores. I am looking for a good run this weekend and lead the lap that counts, which is the last one and get this Sears Auto Center / DieHard Toyota in victory lane.”
Steve Arpin will jump behind the wheel of the same car he drove to victory at the intermediate track of Texas Motor Speedway in April with Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
“Intermediate tracks are a place where Venturini Motorsports shines as a team and I shine as a driver,” said Arpin. “We learned a lot at the test last month and I am ready to hit the track and put Mike’s Hard Lemonade back in victory lane with the same car we won with in Texas. Michigan is a really neat track to race at because there are grooves everywhere; from the white line at the bottom of the track to two inches from the wall. You can race three and four wide and can go wherever everyone else isn’t to make the pass.”
The green flag will drop for the Racing for Wildlife 200 at Michigan International Speedway on Friday June 11th at 5:00pm. Catch the race live on SPEED or visit arcaracing.com for live radio broadcasting.
