Bojangles Southern 500 Travel Package
The Southern 500 has been around for more than 50 years, but it has sure changed a lot during that time. When it was first run back in 1950, the average speed was just 75 mph and it took more than 6 1/2 hours to complete the race. But when Denny Hamlin won the ’10 Southern 500 it took less than four hours with a speed of more than 126 mph. Held at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, the Southern 500 has featured some incredible finishes over the years, and none have been more exciting than the ’03 edition when Ricky Craven beat Kurt Busch by .002 seconds in the closest finish in the long history of NASCAR racing. We can’t guarantee it will be quite that close this time, but you are sure to see a thrilling race with one of our Bojangles Southern 500 travel packages.
This race has been through several name changes over the years, first as the Rebel 500 and then a series of Dodge names, including the Dodge Charger 500, Dodge Avenger 500 and Dodge Challenger 500. But it really doesn’t matter what you call it, as long as you are there to see it. Some of the recent winners of the Southern 500 include Mark Martin, Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon and Greg Biffle. Darlington is one of the most popular NASCAR tracks, and it has enjoyed several fan-friendly upgrades in recent years. With its unique egg-shaped oval, Darlington always produces exciting racing action and has earned the nickname of “The Track Too Tough to Tame.” With a seating capacity of only about 65,000, there are never enough Bojangles Southern 500 tickets to meet the demand. But if you get a Southern 500 package from SportsTravel.com then you don’t need to worry about that.
If the Bojangles Southern 500 doesn’t give you enough NASCAR action, then SportsTravel.com has some great travel packages for the Sprint All Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as well as NASCAR race packages for every other date on the schedule.
