Piquet to do more ARCA events

Nelson Piquet Jr has confirmed three more outings in the ARCA stock car series for 2010.

Nelson Piquet Jr has confirm that he will rejoin Eddie Sharp Racing for several ARCA Racing Series events, continuing the relationship that began when the Brazilian competed in the 2010 ARCA opener at Daytona.

On that occasion, he qualified in an impressive seventh place, which he then followed up with a sixth place finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series a week later.

Piquet has revealed that he will compete in the Rattlesnake 150 at Texas Motor Speedway on 16 April, the Racing for Wildlife 200 at Michigan International Speedway on 11 June and the Pennsylvania ARCA 125 on 31 July at Pocono Raceway, in addition to competing in selected NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events, details of which will be announced soon.

“I consider this opportunity to work with Eddie Sharp Racing the next phase of my development in stock car racing,” the 24-year old said, “ESR is the perfect team to work with to learn about the sport because of their championship team and great driver development track record in the ARCA Racing Series. I learned a lot in the Daytona ARCA race, and I know it helped me with my sixth place finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. I have a very good relationship with the Eddie Sharp boys already, we gelled from the very beginning so I'm really happy to continue to work with such a good group of people.”
