NASCAR has just two races left on its calendar for the year. This weekend’s race is a 312-lap, 312-mile race at Phoenix International Raceway in Arizona. The race begins at 3pm Eastern Time on Sunday, November 10.

Jimmie Johnson has pulled out a seven-point lead in the championship over Matt Kenseth. Kevin Harvick is in third place 40 points down on Johnson.

FIA WEC

The World Endurance Championship heads into the Six Hours of Shanghai at the Shanghai International Circuit. The cars use the full 5.451km (3.387-mile), 16-corner layout of the course.

Hopefully, the race will be more exciting than the rained out event at Fuji a few weeks ago. ToyotaToyotaToyotaJapan, 1937 > present155 models
