Darlington Raceway Event Tickets

Get your Darlington Raceway tickets at TicketSmarter and attend one of NASCAR’s crown jewel events! Darlington Raceway is one of NASCAR’s oldest speedways and has been home to one of the sport’s major races since 1950. The Southern 500 is known to race fans around the country and is traditionally raced on Labor Day weekend. Also known as the Track Too Tough to Tame, Darlington is considered to be one of the toughest tracks on the NASCAR circuit with worn pavement and the track’s unusual egg shape. The track is notorious for forcing drivers to drive as close as possible to the wall with them often scraping the wall and creating the well-known Darlington Stripe.

Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson, three of the sport’s most successful drivers, have all won the Southern 500 at Darlington. A new tradition was started in 2015 with a NASCAR Xfinity Series race being added to the Labor Day weekend festivities.
