The Toyota 200 was a discontinued NASCAR Xfinity Series event held from 1983 to 2004 as an accompanying race to the Southern 500. When the Southern 500 was dropped from the schedule and Darlington's Busch Series schedule was reduced to one race, this race was removed in favor of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway because of the Ferko lawsuit.

The race was also held in the spring of 2020 at Darlington Raceway after NASCAR announced it would be running one Darlington race in May (the fall Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 date still stood, which is held on Labor Day weekend accompanying the Southern 500), replacing the Chicagoland Speedway race[1] as part of the changes to it due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark Martin has led all drivers in race wins with five. Only three other drivers, Harry Gant, Jeff Burton and Dale Earnhardt won multiple Darlington 200s, with Gant and Burton winning three times and Earnhardt two.
