Consider This: Labor Day Southern 500

Many people say Darlington Raceway is NASCAR's version of Lambeau Field. It's one of the oldest, most historic facilities in the sport. For many years fans crowded the stands every Labor Day weekend.

Consider This:

It's come full circle and now the engines will roar again on the weekend before Labor Day. Not only is this good news for the track and for the Pee Dee. Having the race on Labor Day weekend will be an economical boost for the entire region.

We're excited that the race is returning to its late summer roots at the track Too Tough to Tame… and equally excited that NBC's new NASCAR partnership means you'll get to see the Saturday and Sunday Darlington races right here WMBF News.

Even though it's a year away it will be pass quickly. Time to start your engines… it's gonna be a great ride.
