Historic Record-Setting Night


There was plenty of history at Nascar’s oldest super speedway this past Sunday--from the traditional Labor Day weekend date to the plethora of throwback paint schemes.  But there were also a number of historic records set:

18—Most cautions in a Cup race at Darlington

1—Most times calling Darlington “Martinsville”

65,985—Most people wanting to punch Rutledge Wood in a single night

15 inches—Width of Kelli Stavast’s bellbottoms (post-1979 record)

178—Most utterances of the word “Playoffs” in a Nascar broadcast


4—Most appearances in a Nascar telecast by “Mean” Joe Greene”
