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 some exciting racing on tap this weekend, ladies and gentlemen. Saturday will have NASCAR trucks in Michigan, NASCAR cars in Canada and ALMS streaming on the Internets. Sunday brings us a Sprint Cup race in Michigan and Moto GP at Indy. It's plenty hot outside, so stay cool by parking yourself in front of your TV — or computer — and watching some races.
