Home>Darlington Raceway Roars Back to Life for Mother’s Day Weekend

Darlington Raceway Returns to Mother’s Day Weekend Action!

The track Too Tough to Tame at Darlington Raceway has flourished during a time many establishments have struggled, bucking the odds to emerge as a more viable part of NASCAR than ever, a trend best captured by the return of two major race weekends for the historic track.

Fans will be in attendance for the entire “Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR” on the new spring race weekend this Friday through Sunday. Darlington Raceway hosts the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Friday at 7:30 p.m., the NASCAR Xfinity Series on Saturday at 1 p.m. and the NASCAR Cup Series on Mother’s Day Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

Tickets are still available for purchase via phone at 866-459-7223 or online at darlingtonraceway.com.

There is a reduced capacity for the 2021 spring event weekend due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that demands protocols to provide a safe environment for fans, competitors and employees, but restrictions are easing as the pandemic’s grip eases.

“As we launch the new spring dates for the Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR, we look forward to welcoming our loyal fans back to the track Too Tough to Tame to create new lifelong memories,” said Darlington President Kerry Tharp.

The track and Goodyear recently announced a big partnership that means the Cup Series race is the Goodyear 400.

“Goodyear is one of the most iconic brands in the history of motorsports, so we are proud to welcome them back to Darlington Raceway for the Goodyear 400,” added Tharp.

The Goodyear 400 will be broadcast on FS1, Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Sunday, May 9 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

In fact, all of the races secured major sponsors as the LiftKits4Less.com 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Triple Truck Challenge race and the Steakhouse Elite 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash race can both be seen on FS1.

This comes as the Cook Out Southern 500 is slated to return with the launching of the NASCAR Playoffs again as part of a Labor Day weekend of racing on Sept. 4-5. The Xfinity Series will compete on Saturday, Sept. 4 at 3:30 p.m., with the running of the Sport Clips Haircuts FVP Help A Hero 200.

Some of the race weekend activities include:

  • The Darlington Raceway Museum + Gift Shop
  • The Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR
  • A kid zones and fan zone (somewhat limited currently)
  • Pre-race passes, scanner rentals, and garage passes

There is much more on the Mother’s Day weekend specifically here.
