Darlington Baldwins

Jim and Christine Baldwin visited Darlington in 2018. The trip was Jim's first time since 1971 and Christine's first time.

In 2018, Jim Baldwin returned to Darlington Raceway for the first time since 1971.

Baldwin and his wife, Christine, live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Baldwin attended races in 1970 and 1971. This weekend was the first time Christine has attended a race at the track.

The Baldwins said their experience was awesome. They praised the hospitality and friendliness of the state of South Carolina.

“It’s been a great visit,” Jim said.

Their favorite drivers have been the Bakers, Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jim also remembered watching the winner of the 1971 race being paraded on pit road for the fans.
