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?

NASCAR RETURNS. The behemoth has awoken from a cold and unforgiving winter, and once again shall terrorize television schedules everywhere. The weekend kicks off with the ultra-short 75-lap Sprint Unlimited exhibition race among the top 25 drivers in the sport, and ends with qualifying for the Daytona 500 that takes place next weekend.

I say "top 25" to keep it simple, but A.J. Allmendinger, Brian Vickers, Brian Scott and David Gilliland opted not to participate. The original invitees came from last year's pole sitters, Chase for the Sprint Cup participants, former Sprint Unlimited winners, and former Daytona 500 pole-sitters. After all of those drivers had a spot, they just went down the standings from last year to pick who fills in the last few spots.

Clint Bowyer, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Paul Menard and Casey Mears filled out the four spots that weren't taken. Check out the full entry list here.

Prefer squggly lines over ovals? The World Rally Championship heads to Sweden this weekend. Rally Sweden is a hot, er, uh,cold snowy mess, and this second round of the WRC is certain to be fantastic.

What else is new for this weekend? AMA Supercross, of course. We've got the next round of two-wheeled fun on this Saturday night.

I just want to add to the list that NASCAR is going to allow RaceBuddy access to all the races this season starting with this evening's Sprint Unlimited. If you don't have access to FOX then you can stream the race with RaceBuddy. It's not broadcast quality. But, the chatroom is pretty amusing and it's better than nothing. Please consider adding it to your broadcast list for Sprint Cup events. I would love to see some of the Jalop community log in and hang out. Thanks!
