Arpin, Vaught Earn Feature Wins on Thrilling Opening Night at Inaugural UMP DIRTcar Roundup

Will Vaught Steve Arpin CLICK HERE FOR MORE PHOTOS FROM THE UMP DIRTcar ROUNDUP AT I-55 RACEWAY! PEVELY, Mo. ? Oct. 16, 2008 ? The opening night of the inaugural UMP DIRTcar Roundup By MyRaceLife.com Thursday featured eight divisions of action, with cars racing three- and four-wide on high-banked I-55 Raceway. The big winners of the night were Steve Arpin, who captured the Modified feature, and Will Vaught, the Super Late Model winner. The top eight finishers in those A-main events are locked into Saturday night?s huge finale. With more features to come on Friday and Saturday, the other six divisions of UMP DIRTcar Racing also were in action in the opener: 4 Cylinders ? Jason Crump fought off four members of the Buechting family in the first heat race to earn a UMP DIRTcar Roundup belt buckle, the prize for winning any race during the three-day event. Pat Brewer powered to victory in the second heat race. The 4-Cylinders are back on the track Friday night to decide the big winner. Factory Stocks ? Danny Ems captured the checkered flag in the Factory Stock heat race, earning a prime spot for Friday?s 15-lap main event. Street Stocks ? The Street Stocks featured two drivers who finished in the top 10 in the UMP DIRTcar National Point standings, with Steve Maisel, who finished third in the national standings, capturing the heat race on Thursday night and earning a prime spot in Saturday?s 20-lap main event. Pro Late Models ? In a new division to UMP DIRTcar Racing this season, Bobby Dauderman and Caleb Ashby were two of the Top 10 in the National Points competing on Thursday night. Dustin Griffin held off Dauderman to win the first heat as Ashby captured the second heat. Those drivers will have key spots in the 20-lap feature on Saturday night. Limited Modifieds ? Zach Dennis, who finished third in the UMP DIRTcar National Point standings, picked up a belt buckle for winning the first heat race Thursday night while Ken Rumble rumbled to a win in the second heat race, setting the stage for Saturday?s 20-lap main event. Sportsman ? Jeff Herzog, the Missouri UMP DIRTcar Sportsman champion who finished second in the National Points, brought his machine to the finish in eighth in the first heat race while Troy Naeger and David Armstrong picked up the victories, getting the jump on the 20-lap feature on Saturday night. UMP Modifieds ? Canadian Steve Arpin, one of the top UMP DIRTcar Modified drivers in North America, outlasted a stellar field on Thursday night that included several drivers who finished in the Top 12 in National Points as well as NASCAR star Kenny Wallace, to pick up a smooth victory in the 20-lap feature. The top eight from Thursday?s feature, which includes fourth-place National Points finisher Tim Hancock, are locked into Saturday?s main event. Bobby Brittle, Ray Walsh and Mark Miner rounded out the top five with Scott Weber, Ken Rumble and Rick Horton earning the other three positions locked into Saturday?s A-main. ?I tell you what we had a good race car tonight,? said Arpin, of Fort Frances, Ontario. ?Trina and Joey back in the pits made a whole bunch of decisions after the heat race, and changed quite a bit of stuff. This thing was awesome, it just drove itself. Walsh was right there and he slid me right over there and I had to get on the brakes really hard to turn below him so I figured I would do the same back to him, and he just never shut down. We kind of got squeezed up on the backstretch there but not enough to hurt either one of us. ?We had to drive the wheels off to stay ahead of those guys tonight. If we give them another chance to get better Friday night we?ll be way out in left field on Saturday. We?re here to race so we?re going to race and have a good time this weekend.? Super Late Models ? Missouri crowd favorite Will Vaught locked his car into the bottom groove on Thursday night and powered his way to the checkered flag in the final 20-lap race of the opening day of action. Jason Feger and Billy Faust tried to run him down, but Vaught had the line and the momentum. In a race featuring four of the Top 20 in the UMP DIRTcar National Standings, Vaught, who was ranked 20th nationally, got the best of Feger (3rd nationally), Brian Shirley (5th nationally), Michael Koos (7th nationally) and Randy Korte (18th nationally). With Vaught, Feger and Faust leading the way to the checkered flag, Danny Haynes and Shirley rounded out the top five as Jeff Johns, Kyle Steffens and Jeff Beyers locked themselves into Saturday?s feature. ?I brought two cars tonight and one has been wrecked and I?m not sure if we?ve got it straightened out so we?re going to run it Friday night now that we?re locked in,? said Vaught, of Crane, Mo. ?I think Billy got a run on me in 1 and 2 and just got into the back of me a little but I was able to keep it out front.?
