Weekend Motorsports Roundup: Dec. 22-23, 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?

If you're reading this, then GREAT NEWS! The world did not end on Dec. 21. I'll admit I was looking forward to doing a bit of looting myself, but it's probably better this way in the long run.

How should we all come together to celebrate the averted apocalypse? By watching some racing, that's how.

As we continue to slog through the cold and harsh winter months, we once again have a bit of a lighter weekend on top, but there are some excellent touring car races from earlier this year on TV. And remember, let us know about anything we may have missed in the comments.
