NASCAR Clash at the Coliseum start time, TV channel, live stream to watch 2024 Cup Series exhibition race


The NASCAR Cup Series in 2024 kicks off with the Busch Light Clash at The Coliseum at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, Feb. 4.

Team Penske driver Ryan Blaney won the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series and will be back in the No. 12 Ford. It was his first Cup title and the second straight championship for Team Penske after Joey Logano won in 2022.

NASCAR has opened its season with the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum the past two years. The Cup Series’ third trip to the Coliseum culminates in a 150-lap exhibition feature with 23 drivers set to race, all atop a quarter-mile asphalt oval located in an arena that has hosted Super Bowls, World Series games and the Olympics.

On-track festivities for the non-points event begin with three practice sessions on Saturday, Feb. 3, with up to 40 entrants split into three groups. Each competitor’s fastest lap time from their final practice session will determine the starting lineup for the four heat races, the first significant alteration of this event’s format after prior years featured single-round, single-car qualifying to set heat lineups.

A four 25-lap heat races will have up to 10 drivers per heat. The fastest practice time in the final sessions earns pole position in Heat 1, second-fastest on pole for Heat 2, third-fastest on pole for Heat 3 and fourth-fastest in practice on pole for Heat 4, and so on. Only green-flag laps will count in each of the heat races, with no overtime allotment.

The top five finishers in each heat will automatically advance to Sunday night’s main event, while the drivers who finish below fifth in each heat will advance to Sunday afternoon’s 75-lap Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ).

The starting position for the LCQ will be determined by finishing order from the heat races. The top two finishers in the LCQ will advance to the Clash and start 21st and 22nd, respectively. Like the heat races, only green-flag laps will count with no overtime.

The 23rd and final position in the grid for the Clash is reserved for the driver who finished highest in the 2023 season points standings and did not transfer via the heat races or LCQ.

Blaney is locked into the main event as the defending champion.

That sets the stage for the main event that is scheduled for 150 laps under the lights in the heart of Los Angeles. 

A NASCAR Mexico Series race will be held Sunday ahead of the Busch Light Clash for the Cup Series. It marks the first time there’s been another series to race on the quarter-mile track inside that stadium other than the Cup Series.

After the Busch Light Clash, drivers and teams will reconvene in Florida to prepare for NASCAR’s most famous race — the Daytona 500 — on Sunday, Feb. 18.
