Harvick wins NASCAR’s Real Heroes 400
Kevin Harvick ruled the track Sunday in Darlington as NASCAR returned to the racetrack for the first time in more than two months, and some fans clustered around the Raceway fence just to hear the engines. The race, dubbed The Real Heroes 400, honored frontline healthcare workers. “Real Heroes” from South Carolina included healthcare workers from St. Francis Downtown hospital in Greenville and McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence. Dr. Marwan Elya, medical director of McLeod Intensivists, was one of those honored. Two more NASCAR races are being held at Darlington Raceway this week. No fans were being allowed in the stands because of COVID-19 concerns, and “essential” personnel at the track were held to strict virus-safety rules, such as masks and temperature checks.
