The Callahan Report: A Wintertime Guide for NASCAR Fans

31 December 1998

By Terry Callahan
Motorsports Editor, The Auto Channel

Reflecting back on the 1998 NASCAR Winston Cup season, there are more goose-bump-producing memories than there are beer cans in the infield at Daytona in February. The Auto Channel was there to cover many of those memories. They have been "stored for life" in order for race fans around the world to get through the tough winter season.

Some suggestions:
Dale Earnhardt

The season started off with the greatest of all memories. Dale Earnhardt finally got the "no-win" monkey off his back at the Daytona 500. Click the artwork to the right to re-visit all the action from the 1998 Daytona 500, including Dale's emotional interview in victory lane. The interview is located in the nightly wrap-up coverage from Daytona section. If you have not downloaded the required software for viewing audio/video provided by The Auto Channel, click here.

The Auto Channel Motorsports Report with Walt Glatthaar provided viewers/listeners with valuable racing information throughout the entire Winston Cup season with great detail. Not only did Walt capture the highlights from NASCAR, but he also reported on CART, IRL, Formula One and other racing series. Hours of coverage can be enjoyed by clicking here.
