We’ve certainly seen a decline in the amount of racing over the last few weeks, but this weekend still has a lot to offer. Formula 1 is in Japan, so you’ll have to get up extra early to catch the practice, qualifying, and race sessions as they start at 1 and 1:30a.m. The NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series are also in action this weekend. They are sharing Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California. The Nationwide race is Saturday afternoon on ESPN2 and the parent network has the Sprint Cup race Sunday at 3:00p.m. If you’re looking for something a little different you can catch the D1 Grand Prix Drifting tour on Saturday afternoon, or the pinnacle of motorcycle racing, MotoGP Sunday evening.
