“Our fans have been asking for a Friday night hospitality option for the Nationwide Series event so getting their input on a name for the new area was a perfect fit,” said Darlington Raceway Marketing Director, Jeff Taylor. “I’m looking forward to reading the entries because I know our fans will come up with some very unique names and that will make it very tough to pick a winner.”
The new Friday night hospitality option will include a meal, snacks, unlimited soda and water, beverage coupons for guests 21 and over, Darlington branded gift, official souvenir event program and limited pre-race pit access.
