NASCAR is in Charlotte for the first of two North Carolina weekends of racing with the Monster Energy Cup Series qualifying on Friday afternoon for Saturday’s All-Star race. The Camping World Truck Series will race Friday night but most of the attention will be on the Cup event.
The qualifying format features each driver making three timed laps, one of which must include a four tire pit stop with no speed limit on pit road. Only 15 drivers are eligible, those active drivers who won a race in 2016 or 2017, previous All Star race winners or previous Cup champions.
But wait. Prior to the All Star race will be the Monster Energy Open, featuring three stages (20 laps, 20 laps and 10 laps) for all drivers not eligible. Each of the three stage winners will advance to the All Star Race.
The Pirelli World Challenge is back in action, reprising the SprintX format for two races (Saturday and Sunday) at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, aka Mosport, just north of Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. Qualifying is Friday evening and remember, this is a race that requires a driver change but each primary or pro driver is already on the game list. The usual suspects (Alvaro Parente, Patrick Long, Michael Cooper, Ryan Dalziel) are the most popular picks so far.
MotoGP is racing this weekend at the Bugatti circuit, at Le Mans, France, at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix de France. Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi, Maverick Vinales and Jorge Lorenzo are the top picks. Qualifying is on Saturday, the race is early Sunday morning.
