It took only a few words of warning from Dale Earnhardt to get Davy Jones' attention.Prior to the International Race Of Champions series opener last month at Daytona, talk among drivers turned to the first-ever IROC event at Darlington Raceway, scheduled for Saturday.Five-time NASCAR Winston Cup champion Earnhardt told Jones that most of the tales about the old South Carolina track's treachery and toughness were true. Coming from a driver normally as dauntless as Earnhardt -- Darlington's leading active victor with seven major triumphs -- the affirmation proved plenty enough for Jones.

Early in the 19th century, Maryland encouraged a movement to establish academies to "prepare students for entrance into institutions of higher learning and for public life." One such academy was the Darlington Academy. Building began in June of 1841, and the first floor was opened in December. John M. Cooley was the headmaster. The state donated $150 annually but though the academy was a "public" school, tuition was required. Financial help was provided to some students by donors. An early photograph suggests that, at least until 1867, black and white students attended the academy together.
