Phoenix, Rockingham swap dates
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 9, 1997) NASCAR officials have 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, N.C., originally scheduled for Oct. 25, 1998 will move to Nov. 1 and the Phoenix, Ariz., NASCAR Winston Cup race will move to Oct. 25. The change was made in an effort to avoid conflicts between the original Phoenix date and a CART PPG World Series race at the California Speedway in Fontana on the same weekend.
