Darlington Raceway to host Speed and Feed BBQ Cook-off and car show
Darlington Raceway will serve as the host for quality barbeque and classic cars when the Speed & Feed BBQ Cook-off and Car Show presented by Raldex returns to the track for a one-day event on Saturday, October 28.
The event will be FREE and open to the public from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Individual tickets will be sold for the BBQ tasting, which starts at 11 a.m. Tickets will be $1 per ticket or 12 for $10. Each sampling will require one ticket.
The Speed & Feed event will also feature a Trunk-or-Treat for kids in partnership with the Wilson High School (Florence) International Baccalaureate Program. The Trunk-or-Treat is scheduled from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
“We’re proud to be hosting this event for the fifth consecutive year,” track President Kerry Tharp said. “Now a one-day event, the Speed and Feed BBQ Cook-Off and Car Show will feature great barbeque, a Trunk-or-Treat, and a car show for our community to enjoy. Fall is known for many great festivals in our area and this event is no different. Thank you to Raldex and their hotels for serving as the presenting sponsor of this event.”
The BBQ cook-off will again be sanctioned by the South Carolina BBQ Association, one of the premier BBQ organizations in the country, and feature some of the top cook teams in the region. The teams will be vying to win the coveted $2,000 first-place prize.
Additionally, the car show will feature an open show of cars and trucks on display for enthusiasts, along with a swap meet. Participants will have the opportunity to make a lap around the famous 1.366-mile raceway on that Saturday.
Pre-registration for the car show is $25. Day of show registration will be $30. A commemorative dash plaque will be given to the first 500 car and truck registrations. Trophies will be given to the top 50 cars and trucks, plus other special awards.
Darlington Raceway is also offering pace laps in a track vehicle around the Lady in Black for a donation of $10 per ride or five non-perishable food items. All proceeds will benefit the track’s charitable arm Darlington Shares and The Lord Cares food bank in Darlington.
