This is the biggest auto racing weekend of the season, the high point, in fact, of the year. Memorial Day weekend is the time when all the racing series put all their top races, it seems.

Formula 1 starts things off with the Grand Prix of Monaco. All these jet-setting international playboys racing around the track in front of the royals. Fun stuff for all the rich people watching. There's live coverage on (French).

Then it's The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500. Fast cars, and fast women (Danica Patrick). Jim Nabors singing Back Home in Indiana. The winner getting to drink a bottle of milk. The heartland of America. Fun stuff. Hear it live at

Finally, to end the day, it's off to Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600, on the NASCAR Nextel Cup circuit. The good ol' boys, doing a little racing under the lights. Check it out at

Needless to say I will be in front of a TV all day Sunday. Life is good for race fans.
