Miss South Carolina and Miss America first runner-up Ali Rogers to make appearance at display from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
DARLINGTON, SC Jan. 16, 2013 – Darlington Raceway will once again be part of the 2013 NASCAR Preview on Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.
Now in its second year, the Preview is a popular destination for race fans wanting to visit displays featuring their favorite NASCAR tracks, drivers and sponsors. Thousands of fans visited Darlington Raceway’s display booth last year.
“We’re excited to be returning to the NASCAR Preview at the Charlotte Convention Center on Feb. 9 and spend time with our race fans,” track President Chris Browning said. “This event is always a great way to engage with fans who love the track Too Tough To Tame or for fans who may be interested in attending a Darlington race for the first time.”
The track will feature a fun and interactive display for its fans this year, which will include a prize wheel, free giveaways and a television displaying last season’s exciting Bojangles’ Southern 500, won by Jimmie Johnson, which gave owner Rick Hendrick his 200th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory.
A special appearance will also be made by current Miss South Carolina and Miss America first runner-up Ali Rogers, who will be on hand from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. to sign autographs and participate in photo opportunities.
Rogers recently competed in the Miss America competition last weekend, finishing first runner-up to the winner Miss New York Mallory Hagan. Rogers is a native of Laurens, S.C.
Fans can register to win a pair of tickets for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 as well as purchase tickets, camping or hospitality for the track’s annual Sprint Cup Series weekend on May 10-11, 2013, when they are there.
“This is an exciting time for our fans,” Browning said. “With the introduction of the new Gen-6 race car, a new defending champion and some great drama that unfolded at the end of the 2012 season, 2013 is shaping up to be a very exciting season and the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington will be no different in May.”
