NS Clash at daytona Dashing towards the west coast.
NASCAR confirmed at the end of Tuesday that it had been rumored for over a week. Clash at Daytona will move to the LA Memorial Coliseum from February this year.
The pre-season exhibition race has been held at the Daytona International Speedway since 1979 and is the first major event of Daytona Speedway each year.
In February of this year, the race was moved to Tuesday before the Daytona 500 and was held for the first time on the Daytona Road Course.
However, next season there will be a crash on February 6th. It will be held at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium two weeks before the 500 and one week before the Super Bowl LVI.
The 2022 NASCAR regular season will continue at the Daytona 500 on February 20th.
“Los Angeles is synonymous with major sports and entertainment events, so we seized the innovative opportunity to showcase NASCAR at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum,” said Ben Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at NASCAR. .. “As the 2022 season begins, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to take a central stage in this market.”
The playing side of the traditional Coliseum is transformed into a quarter-mile asphalt short track, creating a whole new action-packed event to start the season. Drivers will compete for the first time in new next-generation vehicles.
This story is under development and will be updated.
