notes

The Twin 125s aired on 2/17.

The DieHard 500 on 7/28 was rain delayed late into the day, and due to their golf obligations, CBS did not air it live once it got going. Later that night, anybody watching SportsCenter or any other Sunday sports final saw clips of a major accident on lap 117 of the race in which Dale Earnhardt's car hit the wall, flipped, and then was hit on the roof. He suffered a broken sternum and collarbone. On 8/4, CBS showed the race in its entirety. With the Brickyard 400 being a Saturday show during its ABC run, this enabled a captive NASCAR audience to tune in. This was the last time in which a NASCAR Cup race was not shown live in its initial airing.
