The test dates for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards at Daytona Int’l Speedway will be held on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 15-16, 2016.
The announcement marks the first time ARCA’s annual pre-season testing sessions will be held exclusively in January. Since the inception of the test sessions in the late 1980s, the series has conducted on-track activity in December.
“The opportunity to provide our teams with a test date in January is significant, primarily because it is a month closer to the actual race event date,” said ARCA President Ron Drager. “The ARCA Daytona test has been in December since its inception in the late 1980s, and it has evolved and grown into a vital activity inaugurating the new racing season.”
“From many perspectives, January test dates will prove beneficial to ARCA, our teams and Daytona Int’l Speedway. We’re pleased and enthused about the test date adjustment.”
