LOS ANGELES — NASCAR announced Sunday the Busch Light Clash weekend will return to the L.A. Coliseum and expand in 2024.
The Clash will return Sunday, Feb. 4., with a NASCAR Mexico Series race preceding it.
“This is a tremendous win for our fans and our sport,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR’s Senior Vice President, Racing Development and Strategy. “Not only will the fans see the stars of the NASCAR Cup Series in action, they will also bear witness to the talent and skill that is found within the NASCAR Mexico Series. I can’t think of a better way to begin our 2024 season.”
NASCAR ran the Busch Light Clash at Daytona International Speedway until 2021. Then, in 2022, they ran the first Clash at the Coliseum.
Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. have won the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum.
Now, the NASCAR Mexico Series, which ascended Daniel Suarez up the ladder and given us Max Gutierrez and Andres Perez de Lara, will get to join them.
“This is an incredible honor for the NASCAR Mexico Series and its drivers,” said Jimmy Morales, President and General Manager of the NASCAR Mexico Series. “The competition in our series is always intense, but I know our drivers will want nothing more than to become the first Mexican driver to win inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. This is going to be a race we will not soon forget.”
The NASCAR Mexico Series will announce the competitors for the Coliseum race at a later date. The full day’s schedule of racing and entertainment is also TBA.
NASCAR on FOX will once again broadcast the Busch Light Clash. Fox Sports 3 will broadcast the Mexico Series race in Mexico. Pan-regionally it’ll be on Claro Sports and the D Motors channel on DirecTV.
