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?


Welcome to the slow start of the motorsports season. There isn't wall-to-wall racing yet, however, there's a few good events worth paying attention to.

The sheer lunacy of the Chili Bowl continues this weekend, with the main feature race set for tomorrow. The Chili Bowl is this: indoor midget car racing, with drivers from all over the country congregating in a Tulsa stadium. It's exactly as rowdy a good ol' redneck time as it sounds, except without the focus being on a delicious meat stew. (I guess the dirt kind of makes it look like a chili bowl. Either way, I'm hungry now. Thanks a lot.)

The Dakar Rally also wraps up this weekend. Who will make it to the end? Well, Dakar has a live information stream with video highlights on francetvsport.fr, or you can wait for NBCSN to show the highlights after every night.

Two wheels more your thing? Check out this week's round of AMA Supercross!
