TV Racing on April, 19, 2009

With this week's NASCAR Cup race going off on Saturday night, some of you are wondering, "What else is going on, in the racing world this weekend?"

I thought you'd never ask.

Formula One Racing returns to Shanghai, China this week. Catch the telecast Sunday morning at 2:30am et, on SPEED TV. The bars close at 2 am, the race comes on at 2:30am....perfect. Lewis Hamilton---- no relation to Bobby ----won there last year.

The Carolina 200--- at the Rock! ---begins at 12 noon et, Sunday on SPEED TV. Joey Logano won this ARCA event last year. At least three female drivers are entered. Including Alli Owens, Gabi DiCarlo, and Kylie Martel.

Other drivers entered at Rockingham include Ricky Carmichael, Ken Schrader, 70-something James Hylton, and Jeremy Petty.

The Indy Car Series debuts at the Grand Prix of Long Beach Sunday at 3:30 et, on Versus. Yes, Versus! The bullriding network. Gotta love the PBR. Go Ross Coleman!

Tony Kanaan makes his 100th start Sunday, and they're all consecutive. He has 67 top-fives in those 99 starts. Un-friggin-believable!

This weekend also marks the one year anniversary since Danica Patrick "won" a race in Japan. Which begs the question, "If you "win" a race in Japan, in front of less than 10,000 fans, does it really count?" Imagine the media slobberfest if she won a race in the USA. We'll never know.
