note...........apologies for not having a calendar up for last week; was feeling very much under the weather and just flat :censored: forgot........... :o :o :o

Anyway, let's Clip the Apex and see what's on tap this weekend.......................


For several series, this weekend marks the end of the 2010 calendar.................
~~~IZOD IndyCar Series: Cafes' do Brasil Indy 300, Homestead-Miami Speedway/Homestead, Fla.(1.5-mile progressive-banked oval). While Penske Racing's Will Power has been the darling of the road/street circuits, Target/Ganassi's Dario Franchitti has been his equal on the ovals. Can the Aussie claim his first series title or will the Scotsman take his third in four years?
~~~American LeMans Series: 13th Petit Le Mans, Road Atlanta--Braselton, Ga.(2.54-mile natural terrain road course). It is all-together appropriate that the home of the ALMS hosts the 2010 season finale. It was here in 1999 that the ALMS began and every year the race gets better and better. All of the championships are on the line and it will be an interesting 10-hour/1000-mile spectacle.........
~~~FIM World Superbike Championship: Round 13[races 25-26], Magny-Cours Circuit/Nevers, France(2.74-mile road course). One of the two top-level motorcycle series reaches its' 2010 conclusion with a trip to the Magny-Cours circuit in central France. While Max Biaggi has clinched the Superbike title with this weekend to go, don't expect anyone to take it less than 10/10ths..............
~~~2010 Trans-Am Series: America's oldest touring-car series reaches its' conclusion as they travel to Road America as part of the Petit Le Mans weekend..............


There are other series in action this weekend.......................
~~~NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: Price Chopper 400, Kansas Speedway-Kansas City, Ks.(1.5-mile medium-banked oval)
