Say whatever you want about him, the guy can drive...In the final USAC Silver Crown race of the season at PIR a few weeks ago, he qualified a disappointing 24th, but moved up to finish 6th in the 100 lap feature...

Since he has raced primarily on dirt in the US and is from Fort Frances, I'm surprised anyone on this board has heard of him, frankly.

im from saskatchewan and got to meet with him in 07 when his was doing a western swing and was going to rsce an event in saskatoon. his quote was "dont you know who i am, im steve arpin and i responded "whats an arpin". yeah he can flatout drive just a little too much rock star attitude, more than most drivers have.

I think that the attitude might be the kind of thing a young Canadian driver needs to get noticed down south.

Rookie of the year in the 2008 Silver Crown Series for Carl Edwards in a transition to pavement  from a stellar dirt career to date. Only 6 feature wins on the year (there was an injury and I expect a lot fewer modified starts with the Silver Crown program) after 2007 with 18 Feature Wins & 42 top 5 finishes in an open wheel modified throughout the United States and 2006 17 Feature Wins in the dirt mods. Before heading south he won every feature at Emo Speedway in Northern Ontario three years running from 2001-2003. I don't know what the competition was like but it still is pretty impressive sounding. I hadn't really heard much about him until last year when he was on the ballot for the Inside Track awards but did a little digging into his accomplishments. You can find out a lot more on his website, http://www.stevearpinracing.com.

He is definitely one of the top Canadian oval track driving prospects and I wish him all the best in ARCA.

I know this thread is a bit old, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I watched Steve race go-karts, went to school with him and watched him race at Emo Speedway all the time.

You can check out his wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Arpin

We are quite proud of him around here since he is basically the first from our track to be successful. It is nice to see.
