Testing is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Seven-time and defending Daytona winner Bobby Gerhart will open pursuit of his eighth victory at the track by testing his No. 5 Lucas Oil Chevrolet, and nine-time ARCA champion Frank Kimmel will drive his first laps in the series for ThorSport Racing.

Fellow ARCA Racing Series race winners Alex Bowman, Joey Coulter, Cale Gale, Mikey Kile, Brennan Poole, and Mark Thompson have all submitted entries, as has 1990 Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope.

Full-time drivers from the 2011 season who have committed to test include Sean Corr, Maryeve Dufault, Chad Hackenbracht, and James Hylton. Will Kimmel, Jared Marks, Matt Lofton, Brandon McReynolds, and Josh Richards are other notables on the list.

2011 CRA Super Series champion Derrick Griffin will test for Andy Hillenburg's Fast Track Racing, as will 2011 ARCA Gold Cup champion Dennis Strickland. Griffin and Strickland will test as part of the new relationship between ARCA and the Champion Racing Association.

The Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 is scheduled for Saturday, February 18, and will open ARCA's 60th Anniversary Season.
