Consider This: Southern 500’s throwback weekend a huge success

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - What a great event with the Southern 500 moving back to Labor Day.  From the fans, the track leaders, to the drivers, everyone proved what a great sporting event this is.

And the Darlington Police Department tells us…it was a very busy week…but with very few real problems.  The planning and execution proved safety was a priority and the fans were well behaved as well.

Our WMBF News team also produced a spectacular 4 hour pre-race special showcasing the history, tradition, excitement of this NASCAR event.

Consider This:  We are so lucky to have a national, professional sporting event in our community.

And we are so lucky to have viewers and leaders that understand the importance of the race and to continue to make it an absolute success.
