Steve Arpin to Drive Schoenfeld #43 at Nashville Team PR Report
Canadian Will Try Out a Super Late Model in Music City 150
Schoenfeld Headers founder Don Schoenfeld made the announcement today that Canadian open wheel modified ace Steve Arpin will make his asphalt debut in a Schoenfeld Racing team car for the Championship Racing Assn. All American 150 at the Music City Motorplex July 20th. Last year the Fort Frances, Ontario native blasted onto the open wheel modified scene by winning seven of his first eight races on a southern swing for Speedweeks '08. He eventually won 8 of 10 nights en route to the 2007 DIRTcar UMP Winter National Championship at Volusia Speedway. Steve concluded the 2007 season with 18 wins and 42 top five finishes at tracks across the United States.
"We've had a long relationship with Steve and we're excited to provide a quality ride for him as he embarks on a new chapter of his brilliant racing career," said Doug Schoenfeld President of Schoenfeld Headers. Carl Edwards and Clint Boyer are both products of open wheel modifieds where car control and throttle management on narrow tires is a must!
"I am exited about teaming up with Schoenfeld Headers for our first ever CRA Super Series race in Nashville, TN. As I continue to work on developing my career as a driver, I am both honored and excited to start this journey with such great people and a great team. Racing at one of the oldest tracks in the country and a track with so much
history and so many talented drivers coming from it, will be very special," Arpin said.
Don Schoenfeld said, "this is a great opportunity to showcase our race team which Dennis has put together over the last few years. Our two Hamke chassis are state-of-the-art and our engine program consists of one McGunegill sealed engine and one 18 degree engine by Tom Negrete.” Our goal is to position Schoenfeld Racing at a level where we can provide competitive race cars for future up-and-coming young drivers," said Mark Brailey, team manager.
