The Road to an ARCA Title Goes Through Talladega

After last week’s race at Texas, it seemed clear that the 2010 ARCA Racing Series championship hunt was a three-horse race between Venturini Motorsports’ red-hot Steve Arpin, Win-Tron Racing’s veteran Justin Marks and ARCA’s own “Mr. Showtime,” Patrick Sheltra.
