“The 60th anniversary will be a tough act to follow, but we plan on making next year even bigger,” stated Sebring President and General manger Tres Stephenson. “With Mobil 1 extending their title sponsorship another three years and the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón continuing to add new manufacturers and teams, 2013 promises to be another exciting year for Sebring fans.”
