CONCORD, NC (06-30-10) Steve Arpin has been successfully climbing the ranks in his racing career since he first got behind the wheel of a go-kart. And now, at 26-years old, his dream to race in the NASCAR Series is becoming reality as he was signed on with JR Motorsports in April 2010 while racing with Venturini Motorsports in the ARCA Racing Series.
His background in racing has helped steer him toward the potential rise to stardom. He accredits his life in the fast lane to dirt modified racing and his transition into the ARCA Racing Series with Venturini Motorsports.
While Arpin is currently racing in the 2010 ARCA Racing Series, he will never forget home and where he came from - dirt racing in Minnesota.
So before traveling to Des Moines, Iowa for the Prairie Meadows 200 at Iowa Speedway on July 10th, Arpin will be going home to the dust and dirt of Deer Creek Speedway in Minnesota to pay a tribute back to his loyal fans.
Steve Arpin will be racing in the Napa Auto Parts Gopher State 50 in the USRA Modified division on Wednesday July 7th at Deer Creek Speedway. Arpin will be behind the wheel of the no. 55 Mike’s Hard Lemonade/Mike Sorenson prepared modified.
On race day at the dirt track, Steve Arpin will have a driver appearance signing autographs and hosting a question and answer session from 4:30pm-6:00pm. The Venturini Motorsports transporter and no. 55 Mike’s Hard Lemonade ARCA car will be on display for fans during the night.
"I am more excited than anyone can imagine to come back to Deer Creek, it has been way too long,” said Arpin. "It's going to mean a lot to me to be able to get home and see everyone I used to race each and every week with and also all the fans that have continued to follow and support us as we make our way up through the ranks. I couldn't pick a better situation to be able to get back on the dirt! The Gopher was the first race I won at Deer Creek years ago, hopefully we will have a shot to do it again”
Steve has made sure to bring Billy Venturini along to show him his true roots behind the dust, dirt, and grime of modified racing.
“I have never had a chance to watch Steve in a dirt modified so that really gives me something to look forward to,” said Billy. “As for being nervous, absolutely not. I have all the confidence in Steve and his ability. Plus I don't own this one. I am just there to have fun and enjoy the night.”
Steve Arpin has six career wins at Deer Creek Speedway with his first victory at the 2005 Gopher State 50. Arpin put on his dirt suit and gloves and see if he still remembers the way around the high dirt banks of Deer Creek Speedway to victory lane.
After the dirt race in Minnesota, Arpin will travel 173 miles South to Iowa Speedway in Newton, IA to compete with Venturini Motorsports in the 2010 Prairie Meadows 200 on July 10th. The green flag will drop at 8:00 PM CT for the 200-lap race and will be LIVE on SPEED.
