‘It gets better and better every year’
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.”
