Fort Frances native Steve Arpin matched his career-best result in the NASCAR Nationwide Series on Friday night, earning a 10th-place finish in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.
Arpin, driving the #30 Mike’s On The Rocks Chevrolet Impala for Turner Motorsports, made his season debut in the 200-lap affair and hung around the top 15 for most of the night after starting in ninth spot.
After a late-race red flag due to issues with the lights in Turn 3, Arpin stormed his way through the pack on the restart with a three-wide pass on the backstretch.
He made his way into the top 10 during the final laps.
