Weekend Motorsports Roundup, September 28-29, 2013

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?

Last weekend was all about the big names in Formula One getting their fancy rides on their fancy taxis, but this weekend should be a bit different. This weekend is about giving dirt its time to shine.

Yes, I know, something about dirty and shining doesn't make much sense, but we're talking about Off Road Racing, on both trucks and bikes. The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is making an appearance on CBS, which is a television channel, and the Motocross des Nations, which is kind of like the World Series of motocross, with other countries involved as well, so it makes it more like the Olympics of motocross, but we like to call it the World Series even though it's only teams in America, so it's really nothing like the World Series, so let's just go with Olympics.

And if you have no idea what I'm talking about at all, this is what Off Road Racing looks like:

Yes. Awesome.

If you truly insist upon racing that takes place on roads that are paved with asphalt, you can always cheer on friend of Jalopnik, contributor, and lifesaver-through-horsepower Parker Klingerman in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. And, if Sir insists upon twisty bits in their racing as well, there's DTM in the Netherlands and the Rolex Sports Car Championship Weekend.

Even though this weekend may not have the big names or big circus of F1, it still looks to be absolutely fantastic.

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.
