Brasington gone from Turn 2
Darlington Raceway's ongoing renovation projects continued last week with the removal of the Brasington Grandstand from Turn 2.
Brasington, constructed in 1965, was one of the last remaining covered grandstands in racing until the roof was removed in 2004 to accommodate the addition of lights at the track "Too Tough To Tame." The 3,300-seat grandstand bore the name of Harold Brasington, the Darlington developer whose vision of a race track designed specifically for stock cars ultimately became NASCAR's most historic venue.
Additional seating for 6,300 fans will be erected in Turn 1, and will be completed in time for the Dodge Charger 500 in May 2006.
