The phone is already ringing for tickets, but customers aren't the only ones calling. ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards teams are also checking in. As it turns out, several are on the way to test at the historic half-mile oval in preparation for the big show.

Four teams are currently penciled in for pre-race testing including Venturini Motorsports, Mason Mitchell Motorsports, Ken Schrader Racing and Roulo Brothers Racing.

Testing begins as early as May 6 and will take place up through May 12.

Currently, defending race winner Ken Schrader is tentatively scheduled to lead the way in his own No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet as early as May 6. However, the five-time Toledo ARCA winner left May 7-8 open as necessary.

Venturini Motorsports is expected to test May 7-9 with Justin Boston and Joe Gibbs Racing development driver Cody Coughlin while introducing newcomer JJ Haley, expected to make his ARCA debut at Toledo.

Mason Mitchell is tentatively scheduled to join Venturini Motorsports on May 8-9. Mitchell, of W. Des Moines, Iowa, formed his own team for 2014 and works with NASCAR veteran crew chief Brad Parrott. Parrott is expected to attend the test with Mitchell.

Roulo Brothers Racing (RBR), the 2012 ARCA national championship team, is expected to test Sunday, May 11, and 12 if needed. Last year's Toledo polesitter Kyle Benjamin, the youngest ARCA winner in series history (Madison/2013), will test for RBR as will Kyle Weatherman. Weatherman, 16, made ARCA headlines last year with runner-up finishes at Iowa Speedway and Salem Speedway.

Tickets are on sale now for the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Toledo Speedway. Tickets are $15, compared to $25 on race day, and are now available at Menards stores in Toledo, Defiance, Holland, Oregon, Sandusky and Findlay.

The weekend's activities include two ARCA Racing Series practice sessions Saturday, May 17 from 11:45-12:30 and 1-1:45, with Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell at 3:30. An ARCA-sanctioned Sportsman feature race will follow qualifying Saturday afternoon. The Menards 200 is Sunday at 2, with an autograph session from noon to 1. Pre-race and driver introductions follow the autograph session.

The Menards 200 is live on FOX Sports 1.
