This year, for the first time since 2003, the Southern 500 is taking place on its original date of Labor Day weekend. These WBTW-TV news outtakes were filmed at the Darlington Speedway on September 4, 1970, just days before the September 7th race. Driver Dick Brooks speaks about damage to his vehicle and his expectations for the upcoming event. Brooks would go on to finish 8th in the 1970 Southern 500.

Preserve the U.S. Marine Corps Film Archive

MIRC will soon be the permanent home to four decades of the U.S. Marine Corps’ film history currently housed at the History Division in Quantico, Virginia. More than 1,000 hours of this archival film footage will be transferred to the University Libraries and added to MIRC’s significant collections. Be a part of the mission to save this one-of-a-kind leatherneck legacy.
