DST Day 10, 19 July 2012: Fayetteville, NC to Augusta, GA

"South of the Border" (above) billboards proliferate the highway as you drive south from North Carolina into South Carolina. It's got more kitsch than a Route 66 attraction and it's in the middle of nowhere.  At Darlington Raceway we visit the musuem which is small but has an impressive, historic collection of stock car racing exhibits. The Hall of Fame (below) is presented in a room full of columns with sound bites activated at the press of a button. At the top of each column are artifacts from the inductee's career. The excellent pencil and ink portraits were done by local artist Jeanne Barnes.  Pictured here is Marshall Teague known as the "King of the Beach" who was born, raced and died at Daytona.
