Many Aiken residents are gearing up for this year’s Aiken Triple Crown in March, and we are as well at the Aiken Standard.

The Aiken Standard is putting together our yearly guide to the races, and we want to include you in our guide.

We are seeking reader submissions for many things – from memories and old photos to tailgating recipes and traditions.

Are you a resident lucky enough to have attended the races for years? If so, we invite you to send in your old photos from years’ past, as well as your memories from races of years gone by.

Do you have a traditional dish or food spread every year that delights your fellow tailgaters? We are seeking your recipes and tailgating food and drink traditions that help bring the magic together each year for your group at the rail.

We invite you to send in items for print to share with our readers. Please send submissions to Haley Hughes at or by mail to: Aiken Standard, Attn: Haley Hughes, P.O. Box 456, Aiken, SC 29802.

Hughes can also be reached by phone at (803) 644-2382.
