Once the five finalists are selected, fans will have the opportunity to vote for the next “Lady in Black” at www.DarlingtonRaceway.com/LadyInBlack from November 11 to December 11, 2013.
The winner will be selected after voting concludes with the winner announced in mid-January of 2014 (date TBD).
“We want the community, our partners and fans to be engaged in this process to select our next Lady in Black,” Wile said. “Their input is critical in selecting one of the finalists to represent Darlington Raceway in 2014.
