Teams will be greeted by a modified race track for the opening round of the NASCAR playoffs
In September, NASCAR will return to Darlington, South Carolina. The 1.366-mile oval hosts the opening race of the NASCAR Playoffs.
In 2008, the track underwent a $10M upgrade. That included an entire repave of the track, the first repave since 1995.
The facility is owned by International Speedway Corporation, a division of NASCAR.
Darlington Raceway is known to eat tires. The rough surface is exactly what makes the racing so great there, the tires burn off and the cars slide.
