LA Coliseum - The Clash

SUNDAY, February 6th 2022

Weekend Schedule

The season-opening Clash exhibition race will get a taste of West Coast flavor in 2022, marking a historic first visit to the tradition-rich Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The venue that has hosted two Olympic Games will add NASCAR Cup Series racing to its 98-year-old portfolio next season. The event is to be contested around a quarter-mile asphalt oval that will be built around the facility’s football field. The Los Angeles event will mark the first time the preseason Clash will be held outside of Daytona International Speedway since its inception in 1979, and it will give the sport its first competitive look at the Next Gen car on Feb. 6 in a non-points event.
