The HD Racer – April 9-11

motogp The Easter holiday is now only visible in our rear-view mirror, so there is plenty of racing ahead of us!  The NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series are back this weekend to tear up the asphalt in Phoenix. The Rolex Grand AM series is also back. They are in Birmingham Alabama to run the Porsche 250 on Saturday. The Indy Cars hope to make it through the Grand Prix of Alabama without the rain that delayed their previous race by an entire day. You can catch qualifying on Saturday, and the race on Sunday. Perhaps the biggest news though is that this weekend kicks off the start of the MotoGP season in Qatar! If you’re into racing on two wheels, get ready for this one! Unfortunately, like Formula 1, MotoGP is not broadcast in HD, but it should be an enjoyable race regardless.
