The weekend was dominated by the two female drivers that were entered, with Decker leading the way on Saturday and Leilani Munter (No. 55 What The Health Toyota) turning the fastest lap of the weekend at 184.064 miles per hour on Friday. Munter and her Venturini Motorsports teammates Christian Eckes (No. 15 JBL Audio Toyota), Harrison Burton (No. 20 DEX Imaging Toyota) and defending race winner Michael Self (No. 25 Sinclair Lubricants Toyota) worked together in the draft to set the fastest speeds of the weekend.

Saturday’s nine hours of testing ran incident free, with the only stoppages of on-track activity being for routine track inspections. The only incidents of the weekend happened on Friday, when Derrick Lancaster (No. 29 On Point Motorsports Toyota) had a loose oil line and Mader brushed the outside wall off turn two.

The Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire at Daytona International Speedway is set for Saturday, February 9 and will be televised live on FS1 starting at 4:30 pm ET.
