Welcome (BACK) 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?


Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. It’s been a while since we’ve compiled one of these motorsport roundups, you know, because the 2019 racing season ended. After a few weekends of motorsport’s return, we figured it was time to come back to give you some idea of what’s running this weekend and where you can check it out. NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula 1, IMSA, MotoGP, NHRA and Japanese Super GT are all putting on huge events this weekend, so let’s get into it, shall we?

If you know anything we missed or have any great livestreams, let us know in the comments below. And tell what you’ll be watching!

I like this, moving this post to Friday afternoon. I can’t count the number of times I popped on here Saturday late afternoon, saw the roundup, and realized I’d already missed something.
