Get to the races fast with helicopter charters to Darlington Raceway
With a sinister nickname like the “Lady in black”, South Carolina’s Darlington Raceway is certain to have a pretty impressive and exciting racing events calendar. The track was built to host NASCAR sponsored races and events and this year is no exception with the BoJangles Southern 500 coming up Labor Day weekend. If you have already purchased your tickets to the race, have you determined how you will get there?
Car pools, shuttle buses and like transportation is iffy at best. Yes, you will arrive to your desired destination, but in what state of mind? Traffic to the raceway on race weekend can be horrendous and public transport or even private shuttles can be overcrowded and negotiating gridlocked roadways can leave anyone frazzled. This is why a helicopter charter to Darlington Raceway is the only way to travel to the race.
About Darlington Raceway
Darlington Raceway, often referred to by several nicknames, including the aforementioned “lady in black" and the "Track Too Tough to Tame" was conceived of in the 1940’s by retired race driver, Harold Brasington. The raceway was opened in 1950 and at the time hosted its first ever Southern 500 race on Labor day.
The asphalt raceway sports a uniquely shaped egg like configuration with opposing ends somewhat discombobulated. The polarized shape is the result of a minnow pond that could not be relocated at one end. The venue currently seats 58,000 spectators and the track hosts a number of NASCAR sponsored races and events annually. In the past races like Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Rebel 400 were run at Darlington but changes to the schedule have seen some races transition to other raceways.
In keeping with the Labor Day weekend racing tradition, this year the track is hosting two events, the NASCAR Xfinity Series VFW 200 and the NASCAR's Cup Series’ Bojangles Southern 500.

Formerly named the Joe Weatherly Stock Car Museum after late stock car champion Joe Weatherly who initially conceived of the idea for it, is an automotive themed treasury that displays the history of Darlington Raceway and the sport of stock car racing.
