DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule has only three minor changes that involve race dates at Phoenix, Texas and Dover, Del.

Phoenix and Texas have swapped their April race dates. The change means NASCAR will be off April 11 and avoid going head-to-head with the final round of the Master's golf tournament.

The Phoenix event will be held on Saturday, April 10. Texas goes a week later on Sunday, April 18.

Dover, meanwhile, jumps up three weeks in the schedule to May 16 because there are five weekends that month. Without a race moving up, the Coca-Cola 600 would not have fallen on its traditional Memorial Day weekend slot.

The cash-strapped Milwaukee Mile is listed on both the Nationwide and Truck Series schedules, which also show little change.
