DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Sprint Cup cars aren't the only things that will go at Darlington Raceway this summer.

The track ''Too Tough To Tame'' is opening its gates Thursday for players of the ''Pokemon Go'' game and their search for virtual characters inside the raceway.

Players will be charged $10. They'll receive a $5 ticket to the Sept. 2 practice session for next month's Southern 500. The other half of the admission price will go the track's charitable arm, Darlington Shares.

Track officials have said they've seen cars slow down and stop outside the track seeking the game's characters.

Players will park in the Darlington infield. Victory Lane serves as a gym in the game while Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon tire monuments are Pokestops behind the main grandstands.
