Here in Reno one of our sponsors, Reno Motor Sports, is having a Black Friday sale Friday and Saturday. If you ride it’s a good time to stock up and/or replace your worn out gear.

The three-day event features all kinds of motorcycle events including Motocross, Flat Track, TT and other types of races. Things kick off Friday and run through Sunday when they have the Pro/Am Grand Prix.
Go Kart racers will be heading to Chowchilla Fairground for the Kart Nationals. The poster didn’t say if these are Outlaw Karts or Sprint Karts so one needs to check ahead.
The event runs from Friday through Sunday so there should be plenty of action down there.
The fare on TV is pretty slim as we are in the ReRun Zone for now but there is one event that can be watched live.
On Saturday at 5 a.m. NBC Sports will broadcast Formula 1 qualifying at Abu Dhabi. Then on Sunday the network will have the race starting at 4:30 a.m.
Later on Sunday, at 4 p.m. NBC Sports will repeat the Formula One race followed by the Formula 2 event. This is the final Formula One event that NBC Sports will broadcast as next season ESPN takes over that roll for at leat two years.
CBS Sports also has events they are showing on Sunday afternoon. The action begins at 3 p.m. with Trans Am racing followed by Lucas Oil Off Road series showing one of the races east of Sparks this summer and after that the network airs a World Of Outlaws event.
That’s it for this week as we head into the ReRun Zone until the New Year. However in six weeks Super Cross starts the New Year off with a bang.
