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?

We’re getting into the exciting bit of the NASCAR Playoffs now. It’s my first season watching NASCAR regularly, and I think I’m finally starting to kinda-sorta understand the new playoffs system. But, I gotta say, there’s also something kind of magical about turning on the TV, having no idea what anything means, and just enjoying the show for what it is.

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!
