Mar 1, 2016

DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (March 1, 2016) – Darlington Raceway is looking for its next Lady in Black!

The track Too Tough To Tame is now accepting applications for its Lady in Black position. The next Lady in Black will serve as a vital representative of Darlington Raceway, making appearances at various community and media events, parties and its annual Bojangles’ Southern 500 Labor Day race weekend on Sept. 2-4.

The position is an integral part of the track’s continued efforts to focus on the fans and represent the track in the communities that have supported it since its inception in 1950.

The candidate will follow a successful two-year reign by Darlington native Kaitlyn Bailey, who held the position in 2014-15.

“The Lady in Black position is an integral part of our marketing efforts. She is a key representative of Darlington Raceway and is expected to represent the track at many of our yearly community initiatives, including race weekend,” track President Chip Wile said. “We found a tremendous local candidate, Kaitlyn Bailey, with our first search in late 2013. She did a wonderful job for the track and we thank her for her efforts over the past two years.”
