One of Wile’s best memories of Darlington is from this past May, when he took his twins to a race track for the first time. They watched the Southern 500.

“Seeing their eyes wide at the big cars and loud noises is something I won’t ever forget,” he said.

Now, Wile’s family will have an up-close view of Darlington events whenever they want it.

Wile isn’t just looking to expand local events for his family and other fans to see, he would consider other racing series like the trucks the events make financial sense for the race track. The last time the trucks raced at Darlington was in March 2011.

“This is a very special place,” Wile said. “We hope to keep it that way for a long time.”
