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 where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

The racing year is winding down, and with it comes the last gasps of winning speed and glorious dreams. Championships may look all wrapped up, but in many series, they're still undecided.

For those fans of racing with twisty bits, we're running a bit lean this weekend. MotoGP's final race in Valencia, Spain, is your main option, and though two wheels may be bad and four wheels may be better, it's still fantastic competition with possibly even more danger than your run-of-the-mill Formula One race. So you should still tune in.

Over here in the States we've mostly got a mixture of NASCAR and drag racing, with the stock car traveling circus making another stop just outside of Phoenix. Jalopnik contributor and all-around nice guy Parker Kligerman will be charging around the track in the Nationwide Series after last week's Sprint Cup debut, where he finished in the top 20 in his first race. In a five year old car.

Not a bad start, then. And definitely not a bad way to get us through the end of the year.

We know there's been a few site changes recently, so in the interests of comfort and familiarity we'll be keeping the races in the body of the posts. Of course, please use our image annotation tool on the map above to show us races we might have missed, where they're being held, and where we can livestream them.
