TOGETHER WE CAN TAME THE IMPOSSIBLE
MISSION: Darlington Shares is the community arm of Darlington Raceway. Through strong local relationships and partnerships with organizations across the state of South Carolina, we give back to groups making a positive impact in the Pee Dee region.
WHAT WE DO: Darlington Shares aims to improve the quality of life for the Pee Dee region through the support of youth-focused organizations and life-enriching programs within our community.
Have you ever wanted to experience Darlington Raceway from behind the wheel? Race fans who wish to get a personal feel for a crown jewel of NASCAR will get their chance when Darlington Raceway hosts Track Laps for Charity in 2024.
For a donation of $25 per vehicle, fans will have the opportunity to drive three laps around The Lady in Black following a pace vehicle. Fans who make the donation will drive in their own personal vehicles, in a safe manner alongside their friends and family.
The Track Laps for Charity is a safe, fun family activity, but also goes to a good cause! All funds raised will support a local charity and Darlington Raceway Shares, a 501(c)(3) donor-advised fund under The NASCAR Foundation. Darlington Shares aims to improve the quality of life for the Pee Dee region through the support of youth-focused organizations and life-enriching programs within our community.
