While most of the focus remains on the upcoming Sprint Cup Series test near the end of the month, the ARCA Racing Series is set to hit the high banks of Daytona first.

From January 11 to 13, ARCA drivers will be present at the 2.5-mile oval, trying their hand on the new pavement.

One of the drivers attending will be last year's winner, Bobby Gerhart.

Gerhart will be making his 24th consecutive ARCA race this year at Daytona when he takes the green flag in February.

In those 24 starts, he has six wins, four poles and has led in 11 of the last 13 races at Daytona.

"We always come out with some very positive info," Gerhart said in the ARCA Racing Network's press release.

"We know our set-up is very solid for the race. We understand our baseline very well, but there are so many small adjustments anymore on these cars that translate into on-track performance. It's those several incremental adjustments that we gain on going to these tests.

"Overall, the information we've gleaned from the tests has worked for us, so we're not going to try and fix it."

Twenty-seven drivers are listed on the entry list to be at Daytona, including series veterans Frank Kimmel and young stars Ty Dillon and Chris Buescher.

ARCARacing.com will feature live timing and scoring from the three-day test.
