In celebration of Dale Earnhardt Jr’s Daytona 500 victory, Darlington Raceway is extending its special season kick-off package for eight more days until midnight on Monday, March 3.

The track’s season kick-off ticket package gives fans the ability to watch NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver introductions and a concert by Capitol Records recording artist Jon Pardi from in front of the pre-race stage if they purchase any grandstand ticket to the Bojangles’ Southern 500.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting or by calling 866-459-RACE (7223).

“It is a great storyline that Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the Daytona 500,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “To celebrate his achievement, we wanted to extend this season kick-off offer so our fans can have another opportunity to purchase a Bojangles’ Southern 500 grandstand ticket and receive stage-front access when Dale Jr. and 42 other drivers are introduced during pre-race ceremonies on April 12. We’re only extending it until Monday, March 3, so fans need to purchase now to receive this tremendous benefit while supplies last.”
