The Florence / Darlington area is a NASCAR fan’s dream vacation in the fall. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500® on Labor Day weekend is no doubt the star of the show as it's also "The Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR," but a host of popular events lead up to the event, including the Darlington Car Hauler Parade & RaceFest.
You can get your racing fix throughout the year in our area. We have some of the finest grassroots race tracks around, and the Florence Motor Speedway hosts the ‘Weekly Racing Series’ throughout the year and has a fast-paced kart track. And don’t miss the Darlington Dragway. It plans about 12 races each year.
Florence was a host destination for FIREBALL RUN Adventurally (Adventure Rally) in 2015. Fifty teams of drivers were filmed as they Florence while they made their way from Hartford, Connecticut, to the Space Coast in Florida.
