Darlington Raceway Background Information

Harold Brasington knew what he was doing in 1949 when he started pushing dirt around an old peanut field. With every lap those graders and bulldozers completed, the Darlington Raceway slowly came to life. For those few select drivers who have won races at the granddaddy of super speedways, there is a priceless satisfaction in knowing they've conquered the unique egg-shaped oval nicknamed "Too Tough To Tame."

The Carolina Dodge Dealers 400 was the race, which took place at Darlington Raceway track since 1957. Originally it was a 300-mile race of Convertible division. It was called the Rebel 300. In 1966 the races distance was changed for 400 miles. Then again in 1973 the Rebel race was turned into a 500 mile one. Since 1979, under the CRC Chemicals support, the Rebel had been known as the CRC Chemicals Rebel 500. Then in, 1983, the race got the name of the TranSouth 500. In 1999 the TranSouth 500 again was changed to TranSouth Financial 400. Finally, under the Carolina Dodge Dealers sponsorship, the race got its most recent name - the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400. It was a NASCAR Nextel Cup race of 400 miles or of 293 laps, that took place at the Darlington Raceway every spring. The race was held till 2005. Then it joined with the Mountain Dew Southern 500 after that it was the Dodge Charger 500 and now in the NASCAR Nextel Cup it is known as the Southern 500.
