Darlington Raceway announced today that the grandstands are sold out for the 73rd running of the Cook Out Southern 500® NASCAR Cup Series Playoff race. Infield camping and suites are also at capacity for the Shriners Children‘s Darlington Labor Day Race Weekend.

“As the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs start at Darlington Raceway, we are proud to share that our loyal fans have sold out the crown jewel Cook Out Southern 500,” said Kerry Tharp, Darlington Raceway President. “From NASCAR‘s return to race during the pandemic to today, we are immensely grateful to our fans and partners for their overwhelming support of our great sport. When the green flag waves for the first race of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, we look forward to sharing another memorable moment with a capacity crowd at the track Too Tough To Tame.”
