Darlington Raceway president to speak to Kiwanis Club
Kerry Tharp

The Kiwanis Club of Kershaw County will have a very special guest speaker at its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, July 16, at 1 p.m., at DeBruhl’s Restaurant (behind the Colony Inn in Camden). Kerry Tharp, President of the “Track Too Tough to Tame,” Darlington Raceway, will be the featured speaker. There is no cost to attend the meeting. If you choose to eat the delicious country buffet, you are only responsible for the price of the meal.

Tharp joined the Darlington track in July 2016. He is a native of Louisville, Ky. He came to South Carolina to work at the University of South Carolina, where he had a 20-year career as associate athletic director of media relations. He has been a resident of South Carolina since 1985.

Tharp will be discussing the state of NASCAR as well as the future of the Darlington Raceway and upcoming races. “The Lady in Black” is a source of pride for many South Carolina NASCAR fans and one of South Carolina’s premier traditions.

The motto of the Kiwanis Club is to serve the children of the world. The Kershaw County Kiwanis Club does this by sponsoring Key Clubs at all four high schools in the county as well as the Terrific Kids program in many county elementary schools. The club participates and supports numerous other projects to benefit the children and youth of Kershaw County.
