Winston Western 500
Event

A former NASCAR Winston Cup race held at Riverside International Raceway in Riverside, California.  The race was previously known as the Motor Trend 500 until 1971.  From 1972 to 1981, the Winston Western 500, not the Daytona 500, was the first race of the NASCAR Winston Cup season.  In 1981, the race was run in the spring and again in November.  It would be run in November only from 1982 through the end of the races in 1987.  From 1982 to 1986 it would be the last race of the Winston Cup season.
