Darlington Raceway is a race track built for NASCAR racing located in Darlington, South Carolina. It is nicknamed "The Lady in Black" and "The Track Too Tough to Tame" by many NASCAR fans and drivers and advertised as "A NASCAR Tradition." It is of a unique, somewhat egg-shaped design, an oval with the ends of very different configurations, a condition which supposedly arose from the proximity of one end of the track to a minnow pond the owner refused to relocate. This situation makes it very challenging for the crews to set up their cars' handling in a way that will be effective at both ends.Add Darlington Raceway and other attractions to your Darlington trip itinerary using our Darlington trip site.
Darlington Raceway reviews
Every true NASCAR fan should visit this museum. The NMPA Hall of Fame is absolutely priceless, in and of itself. And the collection of race cars was small, but impressive, as well. Great time... more »
This year was my 4th Southern 500. Yes it rained and some aspects were more difficult as they would have been anywhere given the conditions. With patience and understanding we weathered the storm... more »
Decent race on NASCAR schedule. To see the whole track you have to sit in upper rows and best towards the start/finish line. There weren’t many vendors in the fan area. There is a transporter parade during the week that is awesome, a downtown party that was small but some good bands. Getting through gates is a mass of confusion, but goes smoothly considering the crowd size.
If you are going to a race. I highly recommend Darlington. The culture and experience you can get no where else. If you don't know what section to sit in. Section J is a great location to see turn 4 and pits. If you have never been to a race, don't miss it!!!
