It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Tom Arps of Napoleon, Ohio. Mr. Arps competed for three decades with his "Black Widow" Chevrolet and was integral to the development and popularity of the Two Wheel Drive division.
Originally a Modified competitor, Mr. Arps was the NTPA's first Grand National 6,200-lb. Two Wheel Drive champion in 1983 and the division's Region III 5,800-lb. champ in 1987.
We will have additional details on funeral arrangements in this space as they are made available. Please think of the Arps family in their time of grief.
