#NASCAR Returns in Two Weeks / Busch Light Clash & NASCAR Mexico – February 4th


NASCAR will be back in action in just two weeks. NASCAR isn’t just returning to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 2024. It’s adding more racing to a power-packed lineup.


A NASCAR Mexico Series race is added to the power-packed lineup on Sunday, February 4, preceding its season-opening exhibition featuring the stars of the NASCAR Cup Series, the third-annual Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum. That means fans can enjoy two great races in one day inside “The Greatest Stadium in the World.”


Know Before You Go: Clash at the Coliseum

Here are some quick tips to make sure you have a great Coliseum experience:


  • Plan ahead and know how you are getting to the Coliseum. Use navigation and traffic apps such as Waze or Google Maps.
  • Most traffic into Exposition Park is right-turn only. Left-turn pockets will be closed.
  • Go Metro on Gameday. Take advantage of the E Line with two stops adjacent to the Coliseum.
  • Purchase event parking in advance for Exposition Park or USC Campus. Rates and availability may vary per event.
  • Get here early. Review policies, be prepared for metal detector screening and have items clearly displayed in a clear bag.
  • The Coliseum is cashless. Only credit/debit cards and mobile pay are accepted.
  • The Coliseum is a no smoking venue. Smoking, smokeless tobacco and smoking implements are prohibited in all areas of the Coliseum.
  • Download mobile tickets to your wallet on your mobile device before arriving. Screenshots are not accepted.

Lucas Oil Products Expands RCR Relationship (#NASCAR)


Lucas Oil Products, a long-time partner of both Richard Childress Racing and ECR Engines, will expand their partnership with Richard Childress Racing and Kyle Busch in 2024, the companies announced today. The Indianapolis, Ind., based company will partner with RCR and Busch for multiple NASCAR Cup Series races and also continue as the official motor oil of ECR Engines.


Lucas Oil will also serve as primary sponsor for Busch when he competes at the grassroots level in a Micro Sprint car. Busch will debut the Lucas Oil colors on December 26 in the Tulsa Shootout.


“RCR and ECR share our passion for motorsports, from the grassroots to the highest levels of the sport,” said Brandon Bernstein, director of partnership marketing for Lucas Oil Products. “We share Kyle’s passion for short track racing and have seen first-hand the benefits of our partnership, especially as it relates to technology transfer over to short track racers and everyday consumers. We’re proud to continue to commit our resources in R&D and production, and to highlight our premier oil performance with sponsorship of the No. 8 Chevrolet.”


Lucas Oil has served as the official lubricant of RCR and ECR Engines since 2014 and is the official motor oil of ECR Engines. RCR, ECR and Lucas Oil have gone to NASCAR Victory Lane together more than 20 times since the partnership began. Through innovative product research and development, along with aggressive marketing programs, Lucas Oil has established itself as an industry leader, producing only the best line of lubricants and additives available anywhere.


Busch piloted the No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet to victory in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.


Busch piloted the No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet to victory in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. The win came in their first race together and was the first victory for Lucas Oil in the NASCAR Cup Series. It was also the first for Busch at RCR and extended his streak of 19 consecutive seasons with at least one victory at NASCAR’s highest level.


“RCR and ECR have benefited greatly from having a lubricants partner with strong roots in racing,” said Torrey Galida, president of RCR. “It was incredibly gratifying to see the No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet in Victory Lane. It was a testament to all of the resources, expertise, and hard work the Lucas Oil/ECR team has committed to giving us a huge competitive advantage.
