Darlington Raceway to sponsor upcoming CCU baseball game

DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) – Back in September, Coastal Carolina University's head baseball coach, Gary Gilmore, was honored by Darlington Raceway during the Bojangles' Southern 500 pre-race ceremonies.

Members of the Chanticleer's 2016 College World Series championship team were also honored at the track "Too Tough to Tame" during the NASCAR Xfinity Series Sports Clips Haircuts VFW 200.

Now, Springs Brooks Stadium will host Darlington Raceway representatives at the Chants' home game against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns. The track is sponsoring the upcoming Coastal Carolina University baseball game on April 8.

“We’re pleased to sponsor a Coastal Carolina baseball game this season,” track President Kerry Tharp said. “Coastal Carolina’s baseball team had a magical run to the College World Series title last year. Their championship brought a great deal of pride to our state and we’re excited to build a strong partnership with them this year.”

The game, slated for a 2 p.m. start, will feature several in-game promotions, race ticket giveaways and more. The Darlington Raceway pace car will be on display at the stadium as well. Also, students attending the baseball game can get information about the track's college ticket program.

Tickets for CCU vs Louisiana-Lafayette are available at www.GoCCUSports.com
