Any clue regarding which auto race this footage was taken from?

I googled "Arco Graphite car" and found this : http://www.indy500.com/stats/grids.php?raceyear=1978

In 1978, Bobby Unser had Arco as sponsor and the 48 race number at the Indy 500. And the other unknown car from this footage ( /vehicle_152588-unknown.html ) is also from 1978. However, the race track clearly isn't Indianapolis. So I guess this was shot at a race from the 1978 USAC championship.

The car is probably an Eagle (unrelated to Chrysler's Eagle brand).
