Coca-Cola 500 (Motegi)

The Coca-Cola 500 was an exhibition NASCAR stock car race of 311.3 miles (501.0 km) held on November 22, 1998, won by Mike Skinner. The race took place on the Twin Ring Motegi oval course in Motegi, Japan. It was the third straight year that NASCAR held an exhibition race in Japan, previously hosting races on the Suzuka Circuit in 1996 and 1997. Teams from both the Winston Cup Series and Winston West Series made the trip to Japan to compete in the race. Several Japanese drivers entered the event, as well. The race was also the first in which Dale Earnhardt and his son, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. competed against one another in a NASCAR race, driving #3 and #1 Coca-Cola Chevrolets, respectively. The race was broadcast on TBS in the U.S.
