This week’s events

All Times PDT


Banquet 400

Site: Kansas City, Kan. Schedule: Saturday, qualifying (Speed Channel, 8:30 a.m.); Sunday, race (NBC, 10:30 a.m.). Track: Kansas Speedway (tri-oval, 1.5 miles, 15 degrees banking in turns). Race distance: 400 miles, 267 laps. Last race: Dale Jarrett used a three-wide pass to challenge Tony Stewart for the lead on the final lap of a three-lap overtime shootout, then passed Stewart on the backstretch in the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega for his first victory since 2003. Last year: Pole-sitter Joe Nemechek completed the sweep at Kansas Speedway with his win in the Banquet 400. Fast facts: Stewart is the new points leader after finishing second at Talladega, four points ahead of Ryan Newman and 76 in front of Rusty Wallace. Jimmie Johnson, who started the Talladega race as the points leader, was involved in two accidents and dropped to fourth in the standings — 98 points back. … Crew chief Todd Berrier was suspended until Oct. 19, fined $10,000 and placed on probation until Dec. 31 after NASCAR found several violations in the trunk of Kevin Harvick’s car after he qualified at Talladega. Berrier sat out four races at the beginning of this season when he was caught rigging Harvick’s fuel tank. … Jeff Gordon has four wins at Kansas Speedway.


United Way 300

Site: Kansas City, Kan. Schedule: Friday, qualifying, (Speed Channel, 2 p.m.); Saturday, race (NBC, 11 a.m.). Track: Kansas Speedway (tri-oval, 1.5 miles, 15 degrees banking in turns). Race distance: 300 miles, 200 laps. Last race: Ryan Newman tied the series record by winning in his fourth consecutive start in a season, a dominant performance in a wreck-filled Dover 200 in Delaware on Sept. 24. Newman won in Watkins Glen, Bristol and Michigan, but had not competed in the previous two events. He tied the record set by Sam Ard, who won four races in a row in 1983. Last year: Joe Nemechek held off Greg Biffle by .041 seconds to win the Mr. Goodcents 300 at Kansas Speedway. Fast facts: Bowyer is within 26 points of series leader Martin Truex Jr. after his runner-up finish at Dover. Truex was second with less than 10 laps to go, but had to pit due to a cut tire and finished 12th. … Dale Earnhardt Jr. won five straight Busch starts over a span of three seasons from 2002-04. … Greg Biffle has finished in the top five in all four of his Busch starts at Kansas.


Japanese Grand Prix

Site: Suzuka. Schedule: Saturday, qualifying (Speed Channel, 9 p.m.); Sunday, race (Speed Channel, 9:30 p.m.). Track: Suzuka Circuit (road course, 3.636 miles, 21 turns). Race distance: 192.708 miles, 53 laps. Last race: Fernando Alonso became F1’s youngest champion by finishing third in the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sept. 25. The 24-year-old Spaniard needed only a top-three finish in the race, which was won by Juan Pablo Montoya. Last year: Michael Schumacher won his 13th race of 2004 by capturing the Japanese Grand Prix. Fast facts: Honda is taking full control of the BAR-Honda Formula One racing team in a deal with founding owner British American Tobacco. Tokyo-based Honda, who owns 45 percent of the team, said Tuesday that it is buying BAR’s 55 percent stake. … Montoya’s victory was his third of the season and helped McLaren take a two-point lead over Renault in the chase for the constructors title. McLaren, an eight-time champion, is looking for its first title since 1998, while Renault has yet to win the honor.


O’Reilly Fall Nationals

Site: Ennis, Texas. Schedule: Friday, qualifying, 2:30 p.m.; Saturday, qualifying, 10 a.m. (ESPN2, 1 p.m., tape); Sunday, eliminations, Noon (ESPN2, 5 p.m., tape). Track: Texas Motorplex. Last event: Season leader Tony Schumacher backed up his national-record run in qualifying with his second straight Top Fuel win in the Ameriquest Mortgage NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway. Ron Capps topped the Funny Car field and Jason Line won the Pro Stock division. Fast facts: This event was postponed from Sept. 23-25 because of Hurricane Rita. … Schumacher has a 205-point lead over Larry Dixon with three events remaining. … John Force trails Top Fuel leader Gary Scelzi by 43 points while Capps is 45 behind. … Texas Motorplex is the only NHRA track with an all-concrete racing surface.


Last race: Todd Bodine passed Ted Musgrave on the final lap in a green-white-checker finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sept. 24 for his second truck victory of the season. Musgrave, who trailed series points leader Dennis Setzer by 59 points going into the race, cut the difference to five points when Setzer finished 14th. Next race: Kroger 200, Oct. 22, Martinsville, Va. On the Net:


Last race: Sebastien Bourdais survived a crash with Paul Tracy and a brush with his own teammate to win the Hurricane Relief 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sept. 24. Oriol Servia and Bourdais touched wheels on the 141st of 166 laps, but both continued and despite front end damage from his collision with Tracy, Bourdais edged his teammate by 0.312 seconds — about three car lengths. Next race: Indy 300, Oct. 23, Surfers Paradise, Australia. On the Net:


Last race: Dan Wheldon celebrated his first IRL title and Scott Dixon won the inaugural Indy Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, N.Y. Wheldon, a 27-year-old Englishman, secured the title when the race became official at the halfway point, the start of lap 31. Next race: Toyota Indy 400, Oct. 16, Fontana, Calif. On the Net:
