Even the racing is bigger in Texas. This weekend the Lone Star state will be the center of the motorsports universe. In Austin, the Formula 1 series rolls into the 3.427-mile Circuit of the Americas for the third running of the U.S. Grand Prix, while just a three-hour drive north in Fort Worth NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup snakes through Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5-mile quad oval for the AAA Texas 500. Both races are scheduled for 3 p.m. Eastern starts (tune in to NBC for the F1 race; ESPN, as ever, for NASCAR), and both could have profound effects on their respective championship pictures. So, if you don’t already know how to operate the picture-in-picture setting on your TV, contact your local cable provider now.
