The VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 is a NASCAR Nationwide Series race that takes place at Darlington Raceway.

The race's longtime sponsor Diamond Hill Plywood is based in Darlington, and is owned and operated by identical twins John and Jim Ramsey.[1] Their grandfather Sherman Ramsey, who founded Diamond Hill Plywood, sold the land Darlington Raceway was built on to Harold Brasington, and is said to have requested one end (currently Turn 4) of Brasington's new track be built narrower to protect a minnow pond on his property.[2] Synthetic oil manufacturer Royal Purple recently signed a multi-year deal to be the primary sponsor of this race beginning in 2010.
