Piquet set for further ARCA outings

Nelson Piquet has finalised plans for three more ARCA races as part of his transition to stock cars.
The former Formula 1 driver raced in both the ARCA and Truck Series events at Daytona last month, finishing sixth in the latter after getting caught up in a collision during the ARCA opener.
He will now rejoin top ARCA team Eddie Sharp Racing at Texas on 16 April, Michigan on 11 June, and Pocono on 31 July.
"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," Piquet said.
"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."
Piquet also expects to announce details of further Truck races shortly. AUTOSPORT understands that his aim is to contest the Truck events on the same bill as his next round of ARCA races, but that no deal has been reached either with Red Horse Racing - which ran him at Daytona - or another Truck team yet.
