Preview: ARCA Menards Series sends off the 2023 Season at Toledo!

Entries have been received for the Toledo Speedway Shore Lunch 200 presented by CGS Imaging.

This 200-lap feature, taking place at 4:00 PM on Saturday, October 7th, will send off the ARCA Menards Series season in a big way. Drivers in contention include champion Jesse Love, who will look to hold off against some big challengers like Frankie Muniz, William Sawalich, Andrés Pérez de Lara, and a number of other hard chargers.

Jesse Love looks to become the first driver in Toledo Speedway history to win an ARCA Menards Series race at Toledo, and the Glass City 200, in the same year.

Darrell Basham will become the only driver in ARCA history to drive in a race in 6 different decades, as he has raced in every decade since the 1970's.
