Steve Arpin to Drive for Eddie Sharp Racing in 2009
Denver, N.C. (December 3, 2008) -- Fort Frances, Ontario's Steve Arpin has signed with Eddie Sharp Racing to drive a partial season in the ARCA RE/MAX Series in 2009. The Open-Wheeled Dirt Modified phenom from Canada will drive for ESR in the 12 speedway events at Daytona International Speedway, Rockingham Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Kentucky Speedway, Pocono Raceway, Michigan International Speedway, Iowa Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, and Kansas Speedway.
"We've worked really hard for a lot of years in racing," said Arpin. "We did a lot of research looking for the best team, best equipment, and best people possible in any series to make the next step. We truly feel that Eddie Sharp Racing is the best of those three scenarios and are looking forward to competing in the ARCA RE/MAX Series in 2009. We think this is the best team to be with to further my career."
Arpin is a jack-of-all-trades, master of all things four-wheeled. And even those things without wheels! At only 15, Arpin competed in his first World Championship Snowmobile Derby and won! Arpin nailed a total of eight World Championships before he was 18. In 2008 alone, Arpin ran his famous No. 00 "eh" Larry Shaw Modified, a UMP Open Late Model, USAC Silver Crown sprint car, and a CRA Late Model. Sidelined briefly in February due to burns sustained while changing his own motor at Volusia Speedway (yes, this boy can turn a wrench!), Arpin came back and was named the 2008 USAC Sliver Crown Rookie of the Year and the Minnesota Modified National Champion. Did we mention that this was Arpin's first year in a sprint car...ever? Arpin has won almost every big Modified event across the country.
Arpin is currently working to secure funding to run the entire 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule with ESR. And you can bet that if he does, he will be contending for the 2009 Championship title.
