Since 1950, South Carolina has been an important part of automobile racing history, with the town of Darlington becoming the home of NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway, the Darlington Raceway (which we’re so proud of we included it as one of our top reasons living in South Carolina is the best!). It became notorious as “The track too tough to tame,” due to its challenges as a fast, unforgiving, and treacherous track, showing no mercy for even the slightest on-track errors in judgment. In another part of the state, we’ve got a fascinating auto museum in South Carolina that, surprisingly, most have probably never even heard of.
