Old Name For A New Tower

To satisfy an increased demand for tickets at NASCAR’s original superspeedway, Darlington Raceway has added a new 6,200-seat grandstand in Turn 1, which will be completed and open for business when NASCAR’s NEXTEL Cup and Busch series return to the track on Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-13.

Recent changes at the track, however, necessitated the removal of the historic Brasington Grandstand from Turn 2. Brasington, constructed in 1965, was one of the last remaining covered grandstands in racing until the roof was removed in 2004 to accommodate Darlington’s facility lighting system. The entire grandstand was torn down in 2005.

The 3,300-seat wooden grandstand bore the name of Harold Brasington, the Darlington developer whose vision of a racetrack designed specifically for stock cars ultimately became NASCAR’s most venerable venue.

Continuing her reputation for upholding history and tradition, Darlington’s new grandstand has been officially named the Brasington Tower. Raceway president Chris Browning, along with members of the Brasington family and Greg Biffle, Darlington’s reigning champion, cut the ribbon and announced the name on Media Day.

In keeping with Harold Brasington’s commitment to the success of NASCAR racing in South Carolina, every seat in the new Brasington Tower has been sold, and a capacity crowd will watch race action at Darlington from an entirely new perspective when the green flag waves to signal the start of the 2006 Dodge Charger 500 on May 13.
