DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (Feb. 21, 2017) – 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 special moments for fans at the track’s Labor Day race weekend, will once again feature a panel of NASCAR icons, including Mark Martin 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 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 2016. The opportunity to hear the legends of the sport tell stories about their racing heritage and success is a can’t-miss moment for fans.
“For the past two years, the Bojangles’ Legends Breakfast has truly been a highlight event of the race weekend,” Darlington Raceway President Kerry Tharp said. “It is indeed an honor to have so many NASCAR legends in one place, talking about the most historical moments of their careers. We greatly appreciate Bojangles’ and the NASCAR Hall of Fame for their efforts to make this breakfast something truly special for our fans.”
The promotion kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Fans that purchase their seats to the Sept. 3 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500 will receive free access to the Bojangles’ Legends Breakfast while supplies last.
