Default Darlington this weekend

Dodge Challenger 500 at Darlington is this weekend. I checked the SPEED TV website for broadcast times. No report yet if there will be a Challenger Pace Car. The pre race starts on Saturday 5/10 at 4:00pm till 7;00. There are some prelim and analysis shows on today (Fri 5/9).

The race itself, live on Fox sports TV starts at 7:00 pm Saturday

Nice place to run the Challenger 500. The lady in black as its called. I'll be watchimg that race and will be pulling for the pace car They should let Richard Petty drive the pace Challenger. That would be fitting.

Or at least can turn left!

As for Petty, how cool would that be to have 43 on the sign and have it retro'd out like DW's Mountain Dew car a month ago.

Of coure it'd be a Challenger w/ all the '70 sponsors.....something like this ......but maybe throw a cuda kit on it (to make it plymouth) w/ a SuperBird treatment!

I have high hopes and great expectations that the jinx will be broken. Yes, the 1971 Challenger Indy Pace Car (driven by a celebrity and not a pro) crashed into the pit road wall coming in after the final pace lap, just before green flag. We know here the posts about the Road of America white Challenger etc...

I saw it too, in the background behind the crowd and commentators. "Go or go Home" coverage.
