Motorsports this Weekend: April 15-16

Easter weekend is traditionally an off-weekend for most racing series, providing TV-watchers a chance to catch up on some taped broadcasts from the supporting series that we often miss in the busier weekends.

No Nextel Cup action this Sunday, but Saturday features a live broadcast of this week's Busch Series race from Nashville, Tennessee. Matt Kenseth will be without crew chief Chad Norris, who received a 3-race suspension for rules violations in the Texas race. Craftsman Truck rookie Erin Crocker will make a Busch Series start, driving a Dodge for Evernham Motorsports. Full info Last week's SPEED World Challenge race in support of the Long Beach Grand Prix was a barn-burner! Here's your chance to watch the Caddys, Vipers, 'Vettes and Porsches take it to the streets. Guaranteed great racing! The series website has plenty of info, but watch for spoilers if you haven't heard the results yet!

SPEED, Sunday 2pm ET

Champ Car Atlantic
Another terrific support race for the LBGP, this time from the resurgent Formula Atlantic open wheel series. With a new chassis, new engines and a huge field of young drivers looking to prove themselves, this series will be one to watch all year. Here's the series website - wait until after the broadcast though!

SPEED, Sunday 1pm ET
