NASCAR on TV

Are you going to the big NASCAR event at Kansas Speedway? That’s awesome if you are, because the rush you get when the cars take the green flag is hard to describe. If not, well, you can still watch it on TV. Heck, when I go to the races, I usually still record it so I can go back later and see what I missed. Whatever you like to do, this is a great weekend to be a motorsports fan in Kansas City. For more information about Kansas Speedway, call (913) 328-3300, or visit http://www.kansasspeedway.com/.

Plus, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be here too.  That's usually a better show than the big race, so you won't want to miss it.

Saturday, April 21. Kansas City, Kan. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series SFP 250. Kansas Speedway. 11:30 p.m. (c/t). SPEED TV.

Sunday, April 22. Kansas City, Kan. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP 400. Kansas Speedway. 11:30 a.m. (c/t). Fox Television.
