Week eight of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series takes drivers to Darlington Raceway Saturday night for the Bojangles Southern 500. Austin Dillon reunites with Bass Pro Shops and NASCAR goes Green at Darlington.
FOX News Radio’s Marghiee Teshineh reports in this week’s “FOX in the Fast Lane”:
This weekend NASCAR goes to Darlington dubbed ‘The Track Too Tough To Tame’. And for Dale Earnhardt Jr…
(Earnhardt Jr.) “It’s always been a fun track to race on, it’s just a frustrating track too at the same time.”
That frustration comes from trying to safely navigate around the track’s narrow and wide turns.
For two-time Darlington winner, Greg Biffle…
(Biffle) “It races like no other race track. No other race track do you go that fast, that close to the wall, for that period of time.”
In advance of Earth Day, Darlington Raceway hosted a ceremonial tree planting this week with local students as part of the NASCAR Green Clean Air Tree Planting Program.
And Bass Pro Shops, to mark the return of the No. 3 car to the Sprint Cup Series, will sponsor Austin Dillon for two races at Talladega and Daytona this season. Bass Pro Shops first partnered with Richard Childress Racing in 1998 when Dale Earnhardt drove the No. 3.
