The HD Racer – May 13-16

monaco-f1May is always a big month in motorsports, and this weekend kicks off one of the main reasons why it’s so exciting. Formula 1 makes their way to the streets of Monaco. The Monaco Grand Prix is always a great race to watch with the narrow streets, tight turns, and of course the amazingly fast Formula 1 cars all trying to conquer it at the same time. Formula 1 isn’t the only thing to watch though. All three of the NASCAR series are in action in Dover this weekend also. As usual the Speed channel has coverage of most of the practice and qualifying sessions. They will also carry the Trucks race Friday night. ABC has the Nationwide Series Helluva Good 200 on Saturday, and Fox has the Sprint Cup Autism Speaks 400 on Sunday.
