Click here to Build Tour

Our 2017 Darlington NASCAR race travel tour package is a great way to spend your Labor Day weekend. Our Darlington NASCAR race travel tour package combines touring and racing for a vacation weekend to remember. Visit NASCAR race shops and the NASCAR Hall of Fame Museum in downtown Charlotte. Enjoy a delicious lunch in the exclusive Speedway Club overlooking the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Not to mention a weekend of exciting racing at Darlington Raceway with NASCAR race tickets in the Pearson Tower and a pre-race BYOB tailgate party on Sunday.

This is truly a trip for the entire family – bring the kids for a Labor Day celebration they will never forget.

Our Darlington NASCAR race travel tour package bus trip from Pennsylvania departs August 31 and returns September 4. In addition to everything listed above, we include a tour of the Martinsville Speedway and a tour of the Childress Shop and Museum on our way to Charlotte on this Darlington NASCAR race travel tour package.

If you want to meet us in Charlotte, you can fly into Charlotte NC (CLT) and out of Florence SC (FLO). Our chartered bus will then take care of all your other transportation needs. If you would like to drive, you should drive to Charlotte, and you can then simply drive to Florence for that portion of the trip. All other transportation would be included for the Charlotte touring and the hotel/race transfers for Darlington.

The Darlington Raceway has a rich tradition of racing on Labor Day Weekend. Longtime fans were outraged in 2003 when NASCAR moved Darlington’s traditional Southern 500 date to the Auto Club Speedway in California after 54 years. It only lasted 5 years before the date was moved to Atlanta Motor Speedway. In 2015 NASCAR did another schedule shakeup and restored the Southern 500 to Darlington Raceway.

The Darlington Raceway combines short track action with superspeedway speeds. This combination has earned the track nicknames such as the track that’s too tough to tame and the lady in black.  It is the only racetrack where the racing groove tends to be right against the wall causing what is known to race fans as the Darlington Stripe. The Darlington Raceway is a 1.33 mile egg-shaped oval. The original plan in 1949 was for the track to be a true oval. The design was modified to satisfy the landowner who did not want his minnow pond disturbed.

The Darlington Raceway Stock Car Museum and Pit Shop (formerly the Joe Weatherly Stock Car Museum) is located at Darlington Raceway. The National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame is located in the rear of the museum and is worth a visit.

We are a full service travel agency and would be happy to help you with airfare or a rental car.
