NASCAR on TV

Last weekend, Jeff Gordon finally broke a huge winless streak by winning a rain-shortened event at Pocono. This weekend, the Nationwide and Sprint Cup cars head to the road course at Watkins Glen. Gordon really needs another win or two to make it into the chase at the end of the year. His history on road courses is pretty stellar, so he may just have a chance. See the schedule below, or click on www.nascar.com for more information.

Saturday, August 11. Watkins Glen, N.Y. NASCAR Nationwide Series Zippo 200 at the Glen. Watkins Glen International Raceway. 1:00 p.m. (c/t). ABC.

Sunday, August 12. Watkins Glen, N.Y. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the Glen. Watkins Glen International Raceway. 11:00 a.m. (c/t). ESPN.
