The Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway will be run in April next year after nearly a decade of racing on Mother's Day weekend.
New Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile wants to reconnect to the community by expanding the track's use beyond its yearly Sprint Cup weekend.
Darlington Raceway President Chris Browning has resigned and International Speedway Corporation named Chip Wile as replacement at NASCAR's oldest superspeedway.
He said the rest of NASCAR's schedule would come out Tuesday.
Wile said temperatures in mid-April are generally cooler than the second week in May.
