Darlington Raceway

Guess where I went on July 27th? I stopped by the Darlington raceway. Didn't intend to. The wind brought me there. I was driving thru South Carolina and noticed Darlington was fast approaching. I immediately thought Darlington Raceway. Then a sign from god. Or was that a road sign. Darlington Raceway turn off ahead. I turned off.
