State of South Carolina Declares April 6-13 “Darlington Raceway Week” In South Carolina

From Darlington Raceway 

The week of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500, April 6-13, 2014, has been named “Darlington Raceway Week, a Week Too Tough To Tame” after the South Carolina Senate and House of Representatives passed a concurrent Resolution.

The famed track’s 65-year history is a major reason that the South Carolina Senate and House of Representatives passed the concurrent Resolution, led by state Senator Gerald Malloy, D-Hartsville.

The Resolution outlines the historical significance of Darlington Raceway and addresses the role the track played in building the foundation of what has become one of the largest spectator sports in the country.

“We can’t thank our state government, led by Senator Malloy, enough for passing this Resolution declaring April 6-13 as Darlington Raceway Week, a Week Too Tough To Tame in South Carolina,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “Our leaders recognize the economic importance that the track and NASCAR brings to the state every year. It is an honor to host one of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ most prestigious events in the Palmetto State, and in turn bring a tremendous amount of economic impact to the Pee Dee area.”

Bojangles’ Southern 500 race week will shift into high-gear on Wednesday, April 9, with the 10thannual Darlington Car Hauler Parade making its way from the Florence Civic Center through the Darlington Square and finishing at the track “Too Tough To Tame.”

Racing action will start on Thursday, April 10 with NASCAR Nationwide Series practice from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. The track is opening the grandstands to fans for just $5.

Friday, April 11 features a full day of on-track activity scheduled including qualifying for the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series. The day will conclude with the Nationwide Series VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200 on Friday night at 8 p.m.

Saturday the Bojangles’ Southern 500 will take the green-flag at 6:30 p.m. with NASCAR’s biggest stars battling for the Johnny Mantz Bojangles’ Southern 500 trophy under the lights at the track “Too Tough To Tame.”
