Weekend Motorsports Roundup: October 20-21, 2012

Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

Formula One and FIA World Endurance Championship are taking the weekend off, but there's some really awesome stuff on tap anyway for all you racing fans out there. Four words: Petit Le Mans, y'all. Also, NASCAR's chilling in Kansas City this weekend and MotoGP will be live from Malaysia, but you have to wake up ass-early for that on Sunday.

Also, the World Rally Championship's Rally Italia Sardegna is this weekend. You can wait until Sunday night to see the highlights, or you can probably find it online. I tried looking for a decent livestream Friday night but came up empty. If you have one, help out your fellow Jalops and post it in the comments! Your nation will be forever grateful!
