Weekend Motorsports Roundup: September 15-16, 2012

Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

Well, there's no Formula 1 this weekend, but we do have MotoGP, ALMS, Indy and a whole bunch of NASCAR in Chicago and Iowa. Not too shabby.

As always, let us know if we missed any in the comments, and tell us who you think will win.

All times Eastern.
