Arpin places third at Austin race


Tanner Foust became the new Americas Rallycross (ARX) Championship leader after a thrilling victory in the ARX of Austin at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas on Saturday afternoon.
Loenbro Motorsports’ Steve Arpin, who is from Fort Frances, started on the third row of the final after a difficult day.
The No. 00 RDO Equipment Ford Fiesta ST of Arpin crossed the finish line fourth, but was promoted to third after Bakkerud was given a five-second penalty following the final.
ARX returns to the Midwest for the final event of the 2019 season at the Cooper Tires ARX of Mid-Ohio this Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 5-6).
The long and challenging .7-mile, 10-turn rallycross circuit at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course hosted ARX for the first time in June, an event that saw Subaru Motorsports USA take their first rallycross win since 2014 and Fraser McConnell capturing his inaugural ARX2 victory.
