CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (September 3, 2009) Steve Arpin is ready for another big weekend of ARCA RE/MAX Series competition starting with Friday night's visit to Toledo Speedway in Ohio. The talented Canadian stock car ace will again be aboard the Venturini Motorsports Toyota in search of his first career ARCA tour win. Following the Friday night stop in northern Ohio, the series moves on to the Southern Illinois Fairgrounds with a round of dirt track action for the ARCA drivers in a special Labor Day run on the one mile oval at DuQuoin, Illinois. Arpin will take the Pinewood Sports & Marine sponsored rides into battle for the Venturini team attempting to move back toward the top-five in the national drivers championship on the tour.
'We had an excellent practice session on Wednesday down in Carolina before we headed north today,' Arpin said with an enthusiastic outlook on the weekend. 'I've got a big weekend ahead of me. The team is giving me the equipment to get the job done and we are going to give it our best this weekend in both of the races. I like busy weekends like this one coming up and am hoping to use it to bring a win home for the team.'
Prior to the action getting underway on Friday night, Arpin will join fellow ARCA competitors in a special activity Thursday evening called 'Bowling for Bill - The Focus Motorsports Minister for ARCA. The event will take place tonight beginning at 7:00 pm at New Glass Bowling Lanes located at 5133 Telegraph Road in Toledo.
