HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT KINGSFORD
This past weekend the NASCAR industry celebrated Mother's Day and Kingsford Charcoal driver Bobby Labonte had the opportunity to enjoy time with his own mom as she surprised him with a visit to the race track in Darlington, her first visit to a NASCAR race since 2006.
It was a special weekend for moms everywhere and Bobby was very grateful that his mother could be in attendance so they could share the memory together.
Tailgater of the Week:
Darlington Raceway had some of the best tailgaters and the winner's awarded on Saturday were Todd and Dawn Arnwine from North Charleston, SC.
The pair had a prime spot on the main strip in the infield and actually bought two spots so they could have enough room for all of their friends to have a great tailgating experience.
The Arnwine's favorite things to grill include tenderloin, brisket and steak. They are big fans of JTG Daugherty Racing's sponsor's products.
Todd was easily the most enthusiastic tailgater at the track, waving and talking to everyone that went past his site.
This is his fourth year tailgating in the infield. His spot was directly across from the giant Sprint Vision screen so they were able to continue the tailgate throughout the race and not go into the stands.
Congratulations to the Arnwine's! We'll be looking for this weeks Tailgater at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
