NASCAR’s Southern 500 returned to Darlington Raceway for the Labor Day weekend, and the brand hosted a throwback-themed event with retro products to celebrate the occasion.

From 1950-2003, the race was held on Labor Day weekend, but for the past 11 years it has been held at an earlier date.

In a nod to a return to the tradition, 30 race cars sported vintage paint schemes, and the racetrack sold themed souvenirs, food and entertainment. Also, the Fanatics NASCAR Trackside Superstore featured a refreshed NASCAR Classics line that includes hats, tees, diecasts and hard goods.
