"The Mother's Day weekend race continues to be very popular with fans," said Chris Browning, president of Darlington Raceway. "The inaugural event in 2005 sold out early, and tickets for this year's race sold even faster. We expect that trend to continue in 2007, and encourage fans to renew early to guarantee their spot at the track "Too Tough To Tame."
