NOTABLE: Arpin's career began in go-karts at the age of 10, and progressed into snowmobiles and modifieds as he entered his teen years. Between 2001 and 2003, Arpin won every feature event at Emo Speedway in Ontario, north of Minnesota. His dominance in the north central United States and parts of Canada brought him to the USAC Silver Crown Series in 2008, when he was crowned that division's Rookie of the Year. In 2010, building off of his success in the ARCA Racing Series, Arpin made seven starts for JR Motorsports and car owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
