Radiator woes stop Arpin


Local racer Steve Arpin was undone by a rock at the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic 200 on Saturday.
Arpin’s day was cut short on Lap 54 when his radiator broke down, sticking him with a 20th-place finish at Salem Speedway in Salem, Ind.
After the race, Arpin wrote on his Twitter page that a rock had run through the radiator, causing him to bow out.
After starting fifth on the grid, Arpin had moved up to second place before the radiator gave out.
Dakoda Armstrong ended up holding off Joey Coulter for the victory.
Arpin now sits in 13th place in the ARCA standings with 3,075 points.
He has three victories this season, having won two races in April before winning the Southern Illinous 100 earlier this month.
Tom Hessert holds the overall lead with 4,300 points, just ahead of Patrick Sheltra (4,290 points).
There are two races left on the ARCA schedule: the ARCA Kansas Lottery 150 at Kansas Speedway on Sept. 30, followed by the American 200 at Rockingham Speedway on Oct. 9.
