While NASCAR and INDYCAR go road course racing this weekend, there is no shortage of short track racing to whet the oval appetite on the first weekend of summer if you’re wanting to stay inside to beat the heat.
The CARS Tour, Southern Super Series, Canadian APC Series, Bowman Gray Stadium and weekly racing from tracks like Langley Speedway and Tucson Speedway.
Let’s get right into it.
Here’s this weekend’s short track streaming guide.
FRIDAY: Southern Super Series at Five Flags Speedway
The fifth race of the Southern Super Series schedule is also the second of the four-race Blizzard Series at 5 Flags Speedway. Giovanni Bromante leads Jeremy Pate by eight points but there is solid list of one-offs for this race too, including Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse and Austin Thaxton.
SATURDAY: CARS Tour Late Model Stocks at Dominion
A 24-car entry list has descended upon Thornburg, Virginia. Defending champion Bobby McCarty leads Josh Berry by one point. Deac McCaskill and Brandon Pierce are within striking distance. Other expected contenders include Layne Riggs, Stacy Puryear, Taylor Grat and Adam Lenke.
SATURDAY: APC Series at Jukasa Motor Speedway

Billy Schwartzenburg leads Matt Pritiko in the standings but Treyten Lapcevich, JR Fitzpatrick and Dale Shaw should all contend in Cayuga. This is the first time the APC Series has appeared online in the United States and fans will be able to see what makes Ontario’s premier Late Model touring division so successful.
