‘It gets better and better every year’

September 2, 2018

The boys were out in the infield Friday.

Pat Parsons and Sidney Ammons, from Conway, were sitting outside their RV waiting for the on-track action to begin Saturday. They’ve been coming to Darlington to celebrate a boys’ night out for 20 or 30 years.

Parsons said his favorite driver is seven-time Monster Energy Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson, who drives the No. 48 Chevy Camaro ZL1 for Hendrick Motorsports.

Ammons said he likes Matt Kenseth. Kenseth stepped away from full-time racing after the 2017 season ended, but he has since returned to pilot the No. 6 Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing.

“All of them [the trips to Darlington] have been good,” Parsons. “It gets better and better every year.”
