Location: New England – Thompson, CT

Round 3 (June 3rd):  4th
Round 4 (June 4th):  1st

Season Points Standings: 3rd place

Steve Arpin had another two great races at Rounds 3 & 4 in Thompson.

  • On Saturday, the first day of a double header weekend for Steve Arpin and the Loenbro Motorsports team in GRC started in the ENEOS car. The team showed speed off the truck winning a heat race and finishing second in the semi-final. In the main event, Arpin started in fifth place and used a well-timed joker to finish fourth, remaining third in the championship points standings.
  • After late night repairs to the #00 machine, Arpin started Sunday with a win in the semi-final race allowing the GRC Series winner the opportunity to start on the front row for the main event. Quickly moving to second, Arpin pressured Tanner Foust until he made a mistake on the last lap, allowing the #00 Loenbro team to cruise to victory.
  • After both events, the championship points battle continues to heat up with Scott Speed (1st), Tanner Foust (2nd) and Steve Arpin (3rd) separated by only 20 points!

That’s why I followed him into the Joker – I knew we couldn’t catch him and pass him, but we had to keep the pressure on, and it worked. He just pushed it a little bit too hard.” – Steve Arpin, #00

Congratulations to Steve for his 3rd podium, first win of the season, and current 3rd place season standings! He’ll race again June 17 in Ottawa, Canada for Round 5.
