RENO, NV (Nov. 1, 2017) – Racing Preview this week is a bit slim but with the season’s winding down that is expected. And over in TV Land we’re starting to shift away from live racing into the “Rerun Zone,” that will go until January.
Locally there are no races but for you fans of Hot August Nights, cruising and Show’n Shines there is an event this weekend.
Reno Cars & Coffee is going to have a meet and cruise Sunday at 4809 Kietzke Lane, that where the Starbucks is located. They also ask you not park in front of Aarons or do burnouts in the parking lot.
And of course this might be affected by the incoming weather that’s supposed to hit us on Friday.
To the east the Nevada Pro Stock Association is holding its awards banquet at the Elks Lodge in Fallon. The time is 6 p.m. on Saturday and the cost is $20.
For those wishing some throttle time on their motocross bikes here is the early week schedule.
E Street MX Park is closed but Prairie City will have practice from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday. Riverfront MX track will also have practice from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Thursday.
With rain supposed to start on Friday there will be another update Friday on the hotline, which is 775-265-7223. It is advised to call before heading to the tracks.
Unfortunately there is nothing streaming on the Internet this weekend but if you want to get caught up on the flat track and short track events go to www.fanschoice.tv and check out the videos they have.
In TV land things begin Thursday at 2 p.m. when NBC Sports has NASCAR America then at 3 p.m. has NASCAR Scan followed at 7 p.m. by the Motor Club show. Over on Fox Sports 2 at 6:30 p.m. they show NHRA in 30.
This week as the season winds down NASCAR has a triple header schedule at the Texas Motor Speedway.
Friday begins at 10 a.m. on NBC Sports with NASCAR Cup and Xfinity practice sessions then at 8:30 p.m. the network has a delayed broadcast of Cup qualifying.
Over on Fox Sports 1 starting at 12:30 p.m. they have NHRA in 30 followed at 1 p.m. by truck qualifying and at 5 p.m. the Camping World Truck race.
CNBC gets Saturday rolling at noon with Cup practice followed at 3 p.m. with Xfinity qualifying. Then the action switched to NBC Sports at 5:30 p.m. for the Xfinity series race.
Fox Sports 2 starts a late night marathon at 8 p.m. with the first part of the FIA World Endurance Championship Series at Shanghai, China. Then at 11:30 p.m. the action switched over to Fox Sports 1 that will follow the race until it ends at 3 a.m. Pacific time.
With the time change that evening I do not know how the ending times will actually work out.
Sunday, after the sun comes up, gets rolling at 11 a.m. with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race from Texas. While the top two in the playoffs are probably seeded into the final in two weeks a long is on the line for several drivers.
Over on CBS Sports, at 10 a.m., they air the Mobil The Grid show. A bit later Fox Sports 2 begins a series of reruns from the Arenacross series.
Then at 3 p.m. www.mavtv.com starts a series of shows beginning with the Lucas Oil Drag Boats followed by the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League and ending with the Lucas Oil Off Road Series.
Two things to note in this preview. First is that all times listed are in the Pacific Time Zone.
And most important is that we go off Daylight Savings Time and back to Standard time very early Sunday morning so don’t forget to set you clocks back one hour.
That’s it for this weekend, enjoy watching either live racing or if you want to catch up on Indy Cars, NASCAR, or Formula One many of those races can be seen on www.youtube.com. And sometimes virtually commercial free.
