2023 South Carolina 400: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Set for Racing Showdown at Florence

2023 South Carolina 400: Retired racing titan Dale Earnhardt Jr. is no stranger to the track action at Florence Motor Speedway. His prior ninth-place finish in the previous year’s South Carolina 400 sets the stage for his third shot at a victory during this year’s event on Saturday.

The seasoned racer secured a spot in the 250-lap feature after clinching a commendable sixth place in the Locked In 150 a few months back. Additionally, Earnhardt showcased his prowess in Florence’s Icebreaker, clinching a 16th-place finish earlier this year.

The upcoming South Carolina 400 promises to be a thrilling spectacle, especially after last year’s debut win by Late Model Stock standout Brenden “Butterbean” Queen. Notably, Carson Kvapil, the contender Queen outlasted in the previous edition, returns for another shot at glory in 2023.

A familiar face, Sam Yarbrough, will kick off this year’s race from pole position after securing a victory in the Locked In 150 last September.

With a stacked roster of more than 40 Late Model Stock Car contenders, anticipation mounts for a night destined to add a prestigious Florence crown jewel to one racer’s collection.
