The NASCAR season is off to a terrific start and in just a couple of weeks, the schedule swings into Darlington for the annual “Throwback Weekend” at the “Track Too Tough to Tame”. Teams from across the sport will be trying to out do one another in paying homage to the sport’s past.

On Wednesday, NASCAR “Hall of Fame” member Bobby Labonte and Darlington Raceway president Kerry Tharp, joined Governor Henry McMaster and other state dignitaries in Columbia to preview the action at the “Lady in Black” over Mother’s Day weekend. Labonte won the 2000 Southern 500, the same year he also claimed a Cup championship. The Corpus Christi, Texas native told those in attendance that his win in the Pee Dee is one of the cornerstones of his career because of the respect a victory at Darlington generates in the NASCAR garage.
