NASCAR Cup Busch Light Clash At The Coliseum

2024 NASCAR L.A. Clash schedule, entry list, and how to watch

NASCAR returns to Los Angeles for the third consecutive year, hosting the Busch Light Clash on a temporary short track at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum.

General View

NASCAR is back! The pre-season exhibition race in Los Angeles is the unofficial kickoff to the 2024 season. However, extreme weather has completely changed plans for the weekend.

Current forecasts say there's a high risk of "damaging, life threatening flooding" in Los Angeles. While NASCAR may be able to get in some on-track action Saturday, there is a 100% chance of rain for Sunday. Unfortunately, the chance of rain remains north of 80% until Wednesday. 

Facing the severe weather, NASCAR has taking unprecedented steps to get the race in. It will now run on Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the NASCAR Mexico race. 

NASCAR does have rain tires, but they will only utilize them in damp conditions. In addition to the L.A. Clash, the NASCAR Mexico Series will also hold an exhibition event at the 1/4-mile track for the very first time. Trackhouse Racing's Daniel Suarez plans to run both races.

Martin Truex Jr. is the defending winner of the L.A. Clash, beating Austin Dillon and Kyle Busch in 2023.

Full details on the updated schedule can be found in the story below:
