 CBC also carries all F1 and most IndyCar races (the Indy 500 & Long Beach will not be shown this year). The races are usually broadcast on a tape-delayed basis at 11:37PM ET on the evening following the race. I understand that it is not uncommon for CBC to delay the broadcast as much as an hour beyond the 11:37PM start, so please use extra caution if you plan to tape the race. If you have access to it, and your French isn't too rusty, you may also want to check out RDS which used to broadcast each F1 race live. (I don't know for sure if they still do). Thanks to Tak Ariga for info. on coverage in Canada.
* HTS (formerly Home Team Sports) is a regional sports network centered in the Baltimore/Wash. DC area. If you have a regional sports network, please check their listings for these shows. If they don't have them, you may want to ask them why they don't. Your times will almost certainly vary from those shown with the probable exception of "This Week In NASCAR". On race weeks TWIN is usually broadcast live from a location somewhere near the track at 11:00PM (Eastern) on the Thursday before the race. An interesting (IMO) show which usually includes a live audience, driver/guest, and viewer call-ins. This show, as well as many of the others, originate on the Prime Network.
Other possible cable sources for at least some of these shows;
