Weekend Motorsports Roundup: August 4-5, 2012

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?

Looks like we've got a pretty decent weekend of racing on tap, sports fans. This afternoon, FUN is going to be spelled A-L-M-S with the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge, and tomorrow we've got a nice mix of NASCAR, Indy Car, drag racing and Superbike. Not bad at all.


I've also included a listing for something special this weekend. The stunning 2010 documentary Senna is playing on ESPN Classic. If you don't have streaming Netflix or still haven't seen this incredible movie yet, now's your chance. Watch it - you'll thank me later.

All times Eastern.
