    Kyle Petty was never among the biggest fans of Darlington Raceway, once saying the big oval should be filled with water and turned into a stadium-sized bathtub. Petty never did well at Darlington - no wins and just five top-10 finishes in 51 career events - by he knows well the significance of its place as NASCAR's oldest superspeedway. For Petty and much of the NASCAR garage, Darlington was a touchstone of the past in an era where bigger and flashier has typically edged out older, now shuttered venues like North Wilkesboro and Rockingham on the circuit.

''This is a track that I've spent a lot of time at as a kid riding around on ATVs, finding these little trails,'' Menard said.

Wilson died Monday of a head injury suffered a day earlier when he was stuck by debris from another car at Pocono Raceway. The loss of one of the most popular drivers in the paddock has been difficult for his peers, but many said Wilson would have wanted Sunday's season finale at Sonoma Raceway to go on.

The 20-year-old IndyCar driver said Friday he has received counseling this week from a psychologist to deal with the emotions he's felt since his single-car crash at Pocono Raceway set in motion the fluke accident that killed Wilson. Wilson was struck in the head by a piece of debris from Karam's car that had bounced along the Pocono Raceway surface.
