NASCAR Cup Series Clash Returning to L.A. Coliseum

The NASCAR Cup Series Busch Light Clash will return to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the sanctioning body announced.

The annual race was held at the California football stadium for the first time in 2022 on a .25-mile track built inside the football stadium. The sequel will take place Feb. 5 and again serve as the prelude to the Daytona 500 two weeks later.

“Our entire industry made a bold move by bringing the Busch Light Clash to the LA Coliseum this past February and it paid off by becoming an instant classic with both new and existing fans,” NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Development and Strategy Ben Kennedy said. “We are intent on showcasing our sport and drivers on the biggest stage and there is none bigger than the LA Coliseum. We’re thrilled to return to the heart of Los Angeles to officially start the season and set the stage for the Daytona 500.”

While full details were not announced, the 2022 event included a format with heat races and a last chance qualifier for the main event.
