This Week in Racing History: Darlington, we were there from the very beginning

Darlington Raceway, a unique egg-shaped mile and a half asphalt track, just north of Florence, South Carolina. As we have discussed previously, Dawsonville unsurprisingly has many ties and connections with this track too; ranging from the very first race held there in 1950, to a $1 million victory in 1985, right up to this past weekend where two Dawsonville drivers competed.
