In 1991 Vortex comics did a series of stories on NASCAR drivers and race tracks. We are presenting here NASCAR Adventures The Story of Darlington, the track too tough to tame.
We previously showed you the history of the Daytona 500 track but Darlington is different. It was the first NASCAR track to host a 500 mile race. Why Darlington? Because it was one of the very few tracks that were paved at that time, most were still dirt! You think today’s NASCAR is wild with over 40 cars on the track, back in 1950 there were 75 cars qualified for the first Darlington 500.
