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.
I think it was 13 miles from the I95. WOOT!
Historical plaque located outside the museum.
A birds-eye view of the racetrack.
All the past champions. Winners of the Southern 500 and other Sprint Cup races held at Darlington.
The building is draped in classic images of the greats. Dale and Bobby.
Cale was one of the favs growing up. He was winning when I was a kid just learning about racing.
Love Darrell. But only after he cried when his brother won the Daytona 500 the day Sr died.
The real oldies.
Johnny Mantz was the 1st to win the Southern 500.
The museum has a bunch of old NASCAR cars. Bill Elliott, an all-time fan fav.
