Rockingham, Phoenix to Swap NASCAR Winston Cup Weekends
9 October 1997
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 9, 1997)--- NASCAR Officials Thursday announced the fall NASCAR Winston Cup weekends at North Carolina Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway in 1998 will swap dates. The ACDelco 400 in Rockingham originally scheduled for Oct. 25, 1998 will move to Nov, 1 and the Phoenix NASCAR Winston Cup race will move to Oct. 25. The change was made in an effort to avoid conflicts between the Phoenix date and a CART race in Fontana, Calif., the same weekend.
