Overview


Some facilities are so special that they literally define their sport. Stock car racing as it is known today did not exist until one man, armed with a vision and a willingness to get his hands dirty, constructed a race track in the middle of a South Carolina peanut field. More than six decades later, Darlington Raceway is still considered one of the crown jewels of racing. "The Lady in Black" is home to the largest margin of victory in NASCAR® history and its closest-ever finish. The legendary track has been the proving ground for every superstar of the sport.

Meet the Author


Cathy Elliott considered NASCAR merely a "go fast, turn left" sport until seven years at the track "Too Tough to Tame" changed her mind. Formerly the director of public relations for Darlington Raceway, she writes a weekly syndicated NASCAR column and coauthored Chicken Soup for the Soul: NASCAR.
