"Darlington Raceway holds a lot of history for NASCAR racing, and has been nicknamed "The Lady in Black." This is the place where a driver can earn a "Darlington Stripe" by scraping the wall in the corner of the oddly-shaped race track.
The grounds at Darlington are pretty flat and our charter buses park just outside of turns 1 and 2. This makes it a short walk to our Tyler Tower seats on the front stretch. We have some of the best seats in the house, right at the start/finish line. This track is always a pleasure to visit.
As the races begin at Darlington, the sun is usually just setting. It's a beautiful sight to see cars start racing around the track as the sun goes down. By this time, the temperature has cooled off and the weather has historically been perfect with average daytime highs in the 80s and nighttime lows in the 60s.
Our group stays in Myrtle Beach, SC at the Embassy Suites Oceanfront Resort. From the hotel to Darlington is about a 75-minute charter bus ride. Guests staying with us in Myrtle Beach can fly into Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR).
Hurry up and get here September, we're ready to get to Myrlte Beach and Darlington NASCAR racing !"
