Weekend Motorsports Roundup, Oct. 25-26, 2014

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?

This weekend brings us some special treats: the stunningly beautiful World Rally Championship round in Spain, a new round of the Sprint Cup (ELIMINATOR!), and the Malaysian round of MotoGP.

The heavily win-influenced Chase for the Sprint Cup, for example, barely saved Brad Keselowski from elimination in the last race at Talladega. Keselowski pulled off a win, much to the dismay of anyone still mad over the shenanigans he was a major part of in at Charlotte.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne were the four who got the axe from the Chase instead. Whether you agree with the playoff-style format of the Chase or not, it does at least do its job of shaking things up.

Let us not forget the two-wheel racin', either. Marc Marquez just broke a record in Malaysia for getting his thirteenth pole position of the year. His time of 1:59.791 seconds edged out teammate Dani Pedrosa, who was 0.182 seconds slower. Marquez has already seized the MotoGP championship title for this year after complete domination in the series, however, the manufacturer's title is still up for grabs.

Offline this weekend, we've got the ever-wonderful Texas Mile. While there is no official video feed, we'll be sure to update you with any records broken.
