Hi John,

The technique is called "Panning".
The reason the viewfinder is going dark is the mirror must go up before the shutter opens and goes back down after the shutter closes.
As you have learned panning requires a great deal of practice to master and even then the keeper rate is not very high.
Try using Shutter priority mode and start with a shutter speed of 1/30th sec. and adjust from there. I would also use Continuous AF-C AF mode and a single AF point.
VR should be helpful too. Keep your movement as smooth as possible and in one plane.

Try tracking your subjects motion while the AF system focuses, once the subject is in focus continue panning and gently squeeze the shutter release button while continuing to pan through the release.
Then Practice, Practice, Practice.....

Best Regards,
Marty
