As hard as it is not to tell you all to tune into CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV for 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament coverage (oops), we have a great weekend of motorsports to look forward to with the 59th annual 12 Hours of Sebring. The race Saturday will be carried on webcast live; apparently it wasn't important enough to make live national TV this weekend. On Sunday, ABC will give it airtime, but presumably in a severely abridged recap format (1.5hrs). The 12 Hours of Sebring isn't just one of the great endurance races on the world stage, it's also the first point earning race of 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup Season.
