Located on the west side of rural Darlington, South Carolina, Darlington Speedway has been the home to stock car racing since the middle of the 20th century. The first race was scheduled for Labor Day 1950, and when the day finally came the stands overflowed. Brasington expected no more than 10,000 fans, but the crowd of over 25,000 shocked him. Fans practically stood on top of each other and they scaled the fence just for a glimpse of the action. Californian Johnny Mantz drove to victory that day in the first Southern 500®, which took over six hours to complete but set a precedent for a sport that would grow to be one of the largest spectator sports in the country.

Over 65 years later, Darlington Raceway is still known as the track “Too Tough to Tame” with names like Baker, Flock, Thomas, Pearson, Yarborough, Petty, Earnhardt and Johnson becoming commonplace in victory lane. Darlington Raceway’s historical significance, as the original paved superspeedway in NASCAR, is unparalleled. The “Lady in Black” is for stock car racing what Lambeau Field is for football and Wrigley Field for baseball, the historical venue that shaped and molded their respective sports, which fans still revere to this day. Its place in the history of the sport sets it apart from all other tracks. It brings its fans the great racing of today mixed with the nostalgia of the past.
