Dual Highway Drive-In

Great name for a drive-in located in Darlington, S.C., a hotbed for NASCAR. The Dual Highway Drive-In was opened in 1948 with Dennis Morgan in “My Wild Irish Rose”. It parked only 150 cars making it very small for a city the size of Darlington. In fact, in the late-1950’s it was the only drive-in in town. It was owned by C.I. Trueluck. It was still open in 1960, but had closed by 1962. I bet if "Fireball 500" ever played there, and I am sure it did, I bet they turned them away by the hundreds.

According to a 1955 aerial photo, there was a small drive in located approximately 1212 South Main Street (Google). There is nothing left of the drive-in today save for the old entrance road and it is now a residential area.

However, it does sit next to a “dual” or four-lane highway, so this could be it. https://goo.gl/maps/erDjE
