California is Ready for a Party

L.A. Memorial Coliseum welcomes #NASCAR


The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has been a familiar name in sports for nearly 100 years, having been home to two Olympic Games, two NFL Super Bowls, the 1959 World Series and several collegiate and professional teams such as the USC Trojans, UCLA Bruins, the Los Angeles Rams, the Raiders and the Los Angeles Dodgers.


It has also hosted many memorable and historic events that include the first ever Papal Mass by John Paul II in 1987, Nelson Mandela’s return to the United States and sold-out concerts by big names like the Rolling Stones and Metallica.


Its size and location, combined with its history, has made it iconic, even earning a State and Federal Historic Landmark title in 1984.


Now, NASCAR will be making its first trip to this storied venue to bring the fun and excitement of stock car racing to Angelenos and fans alike. The Coliseum has been transformed from its typically gold and USC cardinal-painted football field to a quarter-mile short track where drivers will debut the new Next Gen cars.



Today’s Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum will be at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
