Don’t miss the NASCAR Cup Series stars do their annual tango with The Lady in Black, as we tell you how to watch the Bojangles’ Southern 500 live.
If it’s Labor Day weekend, it must be NASCAR Throwback Weekend once again at Darlington Raceway. The highlight is unquestionably the Bojangles’ Southern 500, which is set to take place on Sunday evening in South Carolina.
In recent years, after returning to its traditional place on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule, the Southern 500 has embraced the throwback theme, which seems popular with teams and fans alike. Almost all (Martin Truex Jr., we see you) of the cars entered in the race this year are sporting throwback looks of some sort, paying tribute to drivers, cars or sponsors of the past — and occasionally more than one of those at the same time.
Of course, once the pageantry is past, there’s still the not so small matter of making it 500 miles around The Track Too Tough to Tame. While other intermediate tracks have a reputation for unexciting racing at times, Darlington is not one of those, as both its history and its layout can snap anyone out of complacency or a false sense of security. The Darlington Stripe got its name for a reason.
Add in the fact that it’s one of just two races remaining before the NASCAR Playoffs begin and the 367 laps the Cup Series drivers run on Sunday figure to be some of the most important and most tense of the season. Here’s the info you need to watch the Bojangles’ Southern 500 live:
