NBC to celebrate NASCAR's history at Darlington Raceway

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The return of the Southern 500 to Labor Day weekend will be marked by a throwback celebration at Darlington Raceway that will include everything from the retro paint schemes on the track to the actual broadcast booth.

The Southern 500 last ran on the holiday weekend in 2003.

NBC has agreed to be part of the throwback theme, with its on-air talent scheduled to wear 1970's-style clothing. The on-screen graphics and music will also be a nod to that era.
