The countdown to the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida is less than 70 days, but the start of the 2013 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón is much sooner than that.

The new ALMS season goes green with the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on Saturday, March 16. The race will air live on SPEED, and ticket information is available at sebringraceway.com. ALMS.com will feature Live Timing and Scoring. For more information, visit sebringraceway.com
