“We are opening the ticket office this weekend to accommodate the demand for the Daytona 500 ticket package. It’s our most popular offer of the year,” Darlington ticket manager Vicki Gilbert said. “Fans want that special access for driver introductions and all they have to do is come in and see us this weekend and purchase any ticket to the Bojangles’ Southern 500 to get it.
