Darlington’s Mother’s Day NASCAR Weekend Returns

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Another Darlington Raceway tradition will return in 2021, as the historic facility expands its schedule to host two NASCAR Cup Series races. Darlington first hosted the Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend on Sept. 4, 1950. From 1960 to 2004, Darlington annually hosted two Cup Series race weekends — one in the spring and one on Labor Day weekend. This year the track hosted three Cup Series races as part of NASCAR’s revised schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the 2021 NASCAR schedule, The Track Too Tough To Tame returns to its traditional status with two Cup Series race weekends. Darlington will host its spring Cup Series race weekend on Sunday, May 9, 2021. The track first hosted races in May from 2005-2013 and again in 2020.
