After a rain-extended weekend for two of the top racing series, the Motorsports TV schedule stays busy across the USA.

It will be a short week for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the dragsters of the NHRA, after rain delayed events from last weekend to Monday. They will have to make a quick turnaround to be ready for events this weekend, joined in action by IndyCar, Formula One, and even more too.

The top drivers in stock cars will head north to the Irish Hills of Michigan, at the Michigan International Speedway. ARCA Racing kicks off the weekend on Friday afternoon, with the Xfinity Series following on Saturday, and the Sprint Cup Series on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Camping World Truck Series heads south to Texas after two weeks off, joining the IndyCar Series on the high banks of Texas Motor Speedway.

Not too far from the action in Michigan will be the stars of the Formula One world championship, racing in the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. Other racing series in action include NHRA drag racing from Englishtown, New Jersey, and MotoAmerica racing at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama. Finally, the World Rally 2016 turns to Italy over the weekend too.
