Bobby Gerhart has signed Lucas Oil as the team's title sponsor for the 2017 season, a union that first began in 2004.

Gerhart's the all-time series winner at Daytona by a long shot with eight wins reaching back to 1999. Six of his momentous victories at Daytona have come with Lucas Oil plastered against his No. 5 Chevy. He had plenty of time to think, contemplate and consider his good fortunes on the way down to this weekend's test at the "World Center of Racing". He drives his own hauler each year in preparation for the series' "Super Bowl". Gerhart will set yet another record when his No. 5 Lucas Oil Chevrolet rolls off the grid for the race. The 2017 Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona will mark his 30th consecutive Daytona race, every one since 1988, the same year he earned SCOTT Rookie of the Year honors. Gerhart's also earned more top-fives, top-10s and has led more laps than anyone at Daytona.

His Bobby Gerhart Racing team is fielding all three entries, with a little additional help from a famous stock car racing family. "Brian Keselowski is on board to take care of the truck…we’ll do the ARCA and the XFINITY cars. Lucas Oil Racing TV will be on all three. Jason Jarrett will spot for me on at least two of the efforts…not sure on the third." said the winner of a record eight Lucas Oil 200s.

Bobby Gerhart has long been considered ARCA’s king of restrictor plate racing; with eight wins at Daytona and one at Talladega, it’s not hard to figure out why.

That said, it’s somewhat ironic that Bobby Gerhart’s 300th career ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start comes this Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway in the 52nd running of the Int’l Motorsports Hall of Fame 200. As an ARCA regular since 1988, he could have hardly planned it this way.
