Darlington Raceway already has its theme for throwback weekend 2018: “Seven Decades of NASCAR.”
The Sept. 2, 2018 race will be the fourth year the famed track has hosted the popular event, which honors specific memories from a designated time period. For “Seven Decades of NASCAR,” teams and drivers will have many memorable moments to choose from and highlight through paint schemes, crew outfits and other avenues.
Darlington announced its theme on the 70th anniversary of NASCAR’s first meeting – which led to its creation – at the Streamline Hotel in Daytona Beach, Fla.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for Darlington Raceway and the NASCAR industry to celebrate the sport over a seven-decade period during our 2018 throwback weekend,” Darlington Raceway President Kerry Tharp said.
“We have been era specific the past three years, so we felt it was important to recognize the 70th anniversary of NASCAR with our ‘Seven Decades of NASCAR’ celebration next season and give the teams, sanctioning body and others a wider brush to paint a picture capturing memorable moments we might not have celebrated in year’s past.”
Additionally, Darlington will again have a commemorative ticket design for the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
