RACE DAY READY

GENERAL INFORMATION

Please read through the following helpful information as you plan your trip to the track Too Tough to Tame.
 

ADA INFORMATION

Below you'll find our ADA Information for race weekend, including ADA Golf Carts to ensure your trip at Darlington Raceway is an easy one.

ADA Information

Darlington Raceway guest services will also offer free rides for our ADA Guests from the ADA parking lot (outside Gate 39B) to selected locations on property.

NOTE: Please be aware that NASCAR will hold all golf cart activity on property up to one (1) hour after the completion of the race events for that day. This is done to allow pedestrian traffic to exit and to allow the golf carts space to operate safely on property. Once security gives clearance for rides to begin, all ADA golf carts will begin post-race operations and continue until all fans that want or need a ride are serviced.
