JCB, one of the world’s top three manufacturers of construction and agricultural equipment, joins the Loenbro Motorsports team this weekend as its newest partner as driver Steve Arpin races for his second podium of the Red Bull Global Rallycross season.
The GRC series rolls into Louisville, KY, for its second race weekend event of the year. Arpin, who doubles as general manager of Loenbro Motorsports, is excited to welcome JCB to his Supercar team.
“The JCB and Loenbro partnership makes so much sense,” Arpin said. “Both are family-owned companies and industry leaders. They work hard to serve their customers, and many of those customers are racing fans.”
Last month in Memphis, at the first GRC event of the year, Arpin, driving his No. 00 Ford Fiesta ST, won his heat and took third in the finals. For round two in Louisville, Arpin’s Supercar will feature eye-catching JCB livery and a JCB 509-23TC Loadall telescopic handler will be on prominent display at the track throughout the race weekend.
Thom Peebles, vice president of marketing for JCB in North America, explained the new partnership reflects more than common business practices. “JCB and Loenbro share strong associations with motorsports and a passion for innovation and engineering, but the true character of both companies is evident in the quality of our people and our commitment to our communities,” Peebles said. “It is exciting to collaborate with the Loenbro team, to align our shared enthusiasm for business, community and racing success.
“We look forward to growing our relationship…
