(Are they all correct? What other expressions can be used with 'race'?)

  • English -

    In 1-6, I think you mean "overtime" not "over time" -- there's a difference. "Overtime" refers to working later than usual, often for extra money.

    With that correction, 1-4 and 6 will be correct. 5 needs to have a future tense main verb in order to refer to the coming weekend.
