Labor Day typically signals the end of the summer season. Why not celebrate with one more trip (or 10) to Myrtle Beach?

Myrtle Beach was a staple in stock car racing on the East Coast over the decades. A longtime home to grassroots racing, the track began hosting NASCAR Xfinity Series races in 1988.

Closing out that decade and heading into the 90s, the half-miler saw winners such as Mark Martin, Jimmie Spencer, Jeff Burton and David and Jeff Green.

The battles at this bullring were intense. Take 1999 for example, when Jeff Green got the win but only after teammate Jason Keller had an issue with a tire going down in the closing laps. Or the 1995 Carolina Pride/Red Dog 250, won by Larry Pearson and called to the checkered flag by his Hall of Fame father David Pearson in the broadcast booth.

Now, 32 years after the first Xfinity Series Race, the historic speedway has closed its doors.

Relive the 90s and the peak of racing at Myrtle Beach Speedway in this NASCAR YouTube Labor Day release of 10 classic races from the Palmetto State.
