  • No folding chairs
  • No fireworks
  • No glass

  • No knives
  • Confederate flags

Darlington Raceway’s President Kerry Tharp says he looking forward to another successful Labor Day weekend with the two major events this weekend.

It’s an economic boost for this part of the state in particular and to be able to have two events now is something that we take very seriously.”
