Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Steve Arpin page on 5 February 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Stephen "Steve" Arpin is a Canadian race car driver competing in the Americas Rallycross Championship. He previously raced stock cars in the ARCA Racing Series, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series. His first season with ARCA was in 2009, finishing 7th in the championship standings and winning the ARCA RE/MAX Series Most Popular Driver Award. He was also the 2008 USAC Silver Crown Series Rookie of the Year.

Arpin was born in Fort Frances, Ontario. He made his racing debut in Go-Karts at Riverside Speedway in Rainy River, Ontario at the age of 10. He won several races as a rookie and was at the top of the standings most of his karting career. By the age of 14, Arpin started racing Mini-Sprints at the Emo Speedway in 1997. The following year, he moved straight to WISSOTA Modifieds and, in 1999, took the track championship in the class. After finishing second in track standings in 2000, Arpin returned to the top in 2001 by winning every feature event at the track, claiming his second track championship in three years. He won the majority of races in 2002, just missing his third championship.

It was announced in the summer of 2010 that Arpin would drive the No. 7 Chevy for JR Motorsports in a limited schedule, as a fill-in for Danica Patrick. Talks with JRM's owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. started in 2009. This was made public during the Rattlesnake 150 ARCA event, which Arpin won. Arpin made his first start in that summer at the Aaron's 312, where he was competitive until being caught in a wreck late in the event. His first top-10 finish came in the 2010 Subway Jalapeño 250 powered by Coca-Cola with a 10th-place finish.

In 2011, Arpin made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Texas Motor Speedway, driving the No. 32 Mike's Hard Lemonade Chevrolet Silverado for Turner Motorsports.

In 2012, Arpin competed in two Nationwide races for Turner, at Texas and Iowa Speedway. Aprin finished 10th and 16th respectively. Arpin also returned to the ARCA Racing Series with Venturini Motorsports at both Elko Speedway and Springfield.

For 2013, Arpin received the opportunity to compete for the Global Rallycross Championship alongside teammate, fellow NASCAR competitor Scott Speed.

In 2015, Arpin was signed by Chip Ganassi Racing to compete full-time in the GRC.
