Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced that its Myrtle Beach, South Carolina timeshare resorts--Carolina Grande, Harbour Lights, SeaGlass Tower and Shore Crest Vacation Villas I & II--offer a place to stay for racing fans attending the Royal Purple 200 presented by O'Reilly Auto Parts at the Darlington Raceway May 6, 2011.
"Everyone here in Myrtle Beach is all revved up and looking forward to providing guests with a relaxing retreat after a full day of racing action," says Kathleen Palmer, General Manager at Harbor Lights resort.
A full day of racing action gets underway with racing practice in the morning, then qualifying in the afternoon. When night falls, the lights come on and the racers put the pedal to the metal as they go for the checkered flag in the Royal Purple 200. For the past 60 years, Darlington Raceway has been known as the track that's "Too Tough To Tame." It's also a proving ground where racing's fastest stars (Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle, Steve Wallace and Danica Patrick) test their driving skills against each other on the famed 1.366 mile oval track. This is where the "great" drivers race past the "good."
Fans will notice that the color purple will be featured at the track this year including parts of the historic wall painted to reflect the purple theme of the race. Famed motorsport artist Kenny Youngblood will also be on hand to create a special poster commemorating the event. Proceeds will be donated to benefit the Wounded Warriors Fund.
Bluegreen's Myrtle Beach, South Carolina's resorts are convenient to more than 100 award-winning golf courses, beautiful beaches that stretch for 60 miles, an IMAX(R) Theatre as well as attractions like Broadway at the Beach and Ripley's Aquarium. Relax in style and experience the convenience of Carolina Grande, Harbour Lights, SeaGlass Tower or Shore Crest Vacation Villas I & II during Mother's Day Weekend while enjoying the Royal Purple 200 at Darlington Raceway.
