Arpin makes final push

Steve Arpin (#00) won a pair of feature races Saturday night at the Emo Speedway to close the gap between front-runner Gavin Paull in the Modified points standings.
First, Arpin won the feature from Aug. 16 (Emo Fair), which had been postponed a week due to rain. Then he also won the feature for the Aug. 24 races—both times edging out Paull.
Still, Paull holds a commanding lead in the standings as of Saturday night’s action, with 725 total points—99 ahead of second-place driver Dwayne Pelepetz and 107 ahead of Arpin in third.
In the Streets division, Ron Westover’s third-place finish in the regular feature Saturday night was good enough to keep his lead atop pack with 640 points on the season.
Jake Hasbargen is in second place with 616 points, followed by Bill Witherspoon alone in third but well back (564).
In the Mini-Sprints division, Kyle Ridlon (661) holds a slim eight-point lead over Kenny Perry, who made up some room on the lead with a 55-point effort Saturday night.
Ken Perry is in third place (630).
