WRC and Grand-Am action this weekend. The Rolex Sports Car Series has the luxury of sharing Watkins Glen with NASCAR all weekend, resulting in a unusual time slot on Saturday evening. Isle of Man is back with action from this year, showcasing an even hairier form of racing on the streets of this small island; side car racing. You need to watch this at least once, incredible pairs on all those that compete. As a gift, a sample from last years' action is the jewel for this post. In addition to those mentioned previously, you'll see we sprinkled a few other shows that have entertainment value. Enjoy the shows, but make sure to come to VAG Fair on Saturday.
