You’re right. There is no Formula One race this weekend. No single-seat cars, no tire change strategies. No Bernie Ecclestone. But that doesn’t mean there’s no racing to watch. There is. And we’ve got the details.

Most of the racing action is taking place here in these United States this weekend if you can believe it. Aside from the NASCAR races in Kansas today and tomorrow, there’s also endurance racing in Las Vegas and drag racing down in Texas.

If you absolutely need your racing to come from abroad, or if you can only accept two wheels at most upon the pavement, MotoGP comes to us this weekend from Twin Ring Motegi in Japan. It starts really early Sunday morning, though. Really early. You’ve been warned.

As always, I’m sure I missed an event or two that you’re planning on watching. Make sure to share anything missing with the rest of the class in the comments below, and don’t forget to include streaming information as well.
