LOS ANGELES – With what the National Weather Service has called “life threatening rain” looming on Sunday and beyond, NASCAR has rescheduled the Busch Light Clash for Saturday night.
Originally scheduled for Sunday evening, the third running of the Clash at the L.A. Coliseum is now set to go off at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET on FS1.
The Clash will then be followed by the NASCAR Mexico Series race that has also been scheduled for Sunday.
Admission for the races will remain free with limited fan services available. Seating will be general admission, with fan entry at Gates 1 & 28.
NASCAR released the following statement:
“Due to the threat of unprecedented severe weather on Sunday, the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Mexico Series race events for the Clash have been moved to Saturday night. Thanks to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Los Angeles Public Safety for their partnership and support to make the schedule adjustment for tonight’s event to ensure a safe experience for fans, competitors, and staff.
“We understand weather conditions may worsen as the day progresses, so we encourage fans to make decisions in the best interest of safety. We appreciate our fans, partners, and everyone associated with this event on this unprecedented event.”
For ticket holders to the Clash, NASCAR will contact them in the coming days on next steps to accommodate for the unprecedented impact on this event.
Pre-paid Sunday parking purchased though ParkWhiz will be fully refunded.
