HD Racer – June 25-27

IMG_0400The summer, in the northern hemisphere at least, is heating up, and so is the racing! This weekend has enough action to keep your HTPC or DVR spinning for hours!
Formula One is back this weekend, so SPEED has Friday practice and Saturday Qualifying at 8:00 a.m. as usual. For the second straight event you will be able to catch the Grand Prix on Fox Sunday afternoon.
NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series are both in New Hampshire this weekend. SPEED again has coverage of the practice and qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday. You can catch the Nationwide race Saturday on ESPN, and the Sprint Cup race will be on TNT on Sunday.
If two-wheeled racing is your thing SPEED has coverage of the MotoGP Dutch Grand Prix Saturday morning.
On Saturday you can also catch the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge from Mid-Ohio. This race was run last weekend, and I was there to see it live. You’ll want to check this out if you’re into sports car racing, especially considering it took place at one of the best tracks in North America. Wrapping things up for the weekend are the Australian V8 Supercars as they rumble through Hidden Valley! I was able to say that without even making a joke about ranch dressing!
