With NASCAR returning to Darlington Raceway for the Bojangles Southern 500, fans get to see living, breathing history under the lights of the track too tough to tame.

This race is as tough as they come, forcing drivers the full 500 miles in the most physically demanding race on the schedule. As hard as this track can be on drivers, however, the feeling of winning at Darlington and getting your name next to guys like Richard Petty is something every driver dreams of.
