Arpin pumped on rallycross racing

The experience of racing in something completely different than what he’s used to so far has excited Fort Frances native Steve Arpin.

“It’s really been quite incredible,” the 29-year-old enthused as he prepared to kick off the second half of the 2013 Global Rallycross season.

“First off, to be back in a race car again is a pure joy,” he noted.
