Bojangles' Southern 500

 

Dates: September 6, 2015
Location: Darlington, South Carolina
Course: Darlington Raceway

The Bojangles' Southern 500 is the annual spring NASCAR Sprint Cup race held at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina. For 2014 it was held on April 12, but for the 2015 edition it has returned to its celebrated Labor Day weekend. As an addition the Darligton Raceway will be honoring its past Champions from the early 1970's, in the coming seasons there will be other eras that will be celebrated honoring drivers and historic moments that mark important facts for this southern raceway.

Among the legends that will be honored this year is David Pearson, he was not only the 1970's winner but he also won in 1976 the Sounthern 500 and the Triple Crown. In 1980 Pearson won his 10th and final Cup at Darlington Raceway and this winning also marked his 105 career victory.

Darlington Raceway was created at first in the mind of Harold Brasington back in 1949. Despite of his friends laughing at him and considering his idea even ridiculous, he set out in the fall of 1949 to shape a 1.25-mile speedway on land that had once produced peanuts and cotton. Brasington often operated the controls of bulldozers and grading equipment. The original plan was to give the racetrack a true oval shape, but the racetrack's design had to be changed to satisfy the landowner, who did not want his nearby minnow pond disturbed. The west end of the track (Turns 3 and 4) was narrowed to accommodate the fishing facility, creating Darlington's distinctive egg-shaped design.

Finally, the first race was scheduled for Labor Day 1950, and Brasington expected no more than 10,000 fans, but a crowd showed up in an amount nearly 3 times bigger to see Californian Johnny Mantz drove to victory that day. The race was known as the Rebel 500 from 1950/2004.

To accommodate the ever-growing demand for tailgating prior to the track's events, the raceway is offering a new area outside turn two, the Too Tough to Tailgate Zone, specific for fans who are tailgating prior to the Bojangles' Southern 500.

Today the Darlington Raceway is known as the track "Too Tough to Tame" and "The Lady in Black", and it is still remembered as the original superspeedway and as one of the pillars of the NASCAR establishment.
