DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (Feb. 15, 2016) – Darlington Raceway is pleased to announce that it is once again giving fans the opportunity to participate in a special race day celebration featuring several NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees and legends that helped build the foundation of the sport.
The Bojangles’ Legends Breakfast, considered one of the most memorable moments of last season’s Labor Day race weekend, will once again feature a panel of NASCAR icons, including Darrell Waltrip, Rusty Wallace and Leonard Wood, among others. The “fireside chat” will be moderated by NASCAR Hall of Fame executive director Winston Kelley.
“Darlington Raceway served as the backdrop for countless memorable moments that our NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees experienced over the decades,” says Winston Kelley. “Having the true legends of our sport continue to come back to help honor a place that is rooted in some of their proudest achievements and our sport’s most defining points in history is another reminder of the significance Darlington plays in both our past and future.”
The once-in-a-lifetime event was a must-see for over 1,000 race fans that participated in the breakfast in 2015.
“Last year’s Bojangles’ Legends Breakfast was one of our favorite events of the race weekend,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “To see so many NASCAR icons in one place at one time was very special. We honored them during our throwback weekend in a truly special way. We had so much positive feedback from fans and stakeholders about the breakfast it was an easy decision to bring the event back for another year. With a great partner like Bojangles’, who will serve their award winning breakfast, it will be an event you don’t want to miss.
“We can’t thank the NASCAR Hall of Fame enough for their efforts in getting these icons of our sport together for another breakfast that will be a can’t miss for our fans,” Wile continued.
