"I believe anybody who tells you he is unbiased is a liar. Being human gives you bias, and you can't avoid that. The best you can ever hope to be is fair."

The Greatest Spectacle in Motorsports

This weekend marks one of the all-time great sporting event weekends, with the Indy 500, the Coca Cola 600 and the Grand Prix of Monaco.

All on Sunday!

F1 b

First on at 7:30am on SPEED is the Grand Prix of Monaco, Formula 1's premier event. No other race has the historical importance that Monte Carlo provides. It is the number one sporting event worldwide, and with three competitive teams this season, anything can happen. Nothing else even comes close.
Indy Racing League

Next up at Noon on ABC is the Indianapolis 500. This is the most prestigious race in America and perhaps the world. So many different stories are able to play out!

Marco Andretti, third Generation driver, could win his first Indy 500 in his short career - something his father was never able to do in 16 attemps. Or Danica Patrick could win her second race in 3 starts and be the first woman to ever win in the Indy Racing League. Anything can happen and theres 499 miles to decide how it will play out for that all important last one.
coke 600

And third is the Coca Cola 600. For NASCAR, this is the third biggest race of the year, behind the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400. But just because this is only the third biggest race doesn't mean it lacks the passion and excitement of the others. Lowe's Motor Speedway is one of the fastest tracks on the Circuit. And 600 miles is the longest race in stock car racing. It's a true test of skill and few other events can compare to it.

I hope you all watch and enjoy every lap of intense competition from the world's three premier racing sports. It's gonna be a great ride!
