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?


We've got a pretty strong weekend of racing on tap today and Sunday, sports fans. Today we've got NASCAR in Virginia and some AMA motorcycle racing in New Jersey, and tomorrow we have Formula 1 at Monza and Grand-Am at Laguna Seca. You can't ask for much more than that.

Be sure to check out our coverage of Grand-Am's merger with ALMS if you haven't already.

As always, let us know about any other races in the comments.

All times Eastern.
