For the third straight year, NASCAR is set to begin its season-long grind with a trip to Los Angeles, California, with the announcement Sunday that the Busch Light Clash will return to the LA Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, February 4, 2024.

But this time, NASCAR is adding even more racing to an already action-packed weekend of festivities, with the addition of a NASCAR Mexico Series event that is scheduled to precede its season-opening exhibition event for the stars of the NASCAR Cup Series.

“This is a tremendous win for our fans and our sport,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR’s Senior Vice President, Racing Development and Strategy. “Not only will the fans see the stars of the NASCAR Cup Series in action, they will also bear witness to the talent and skill that is found within the NASCAR Mexico Series. I can’t think of a better way to begin our 2024 season.”

NASCAR has now opened its season with the Busch Light Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum for the last two seasons, with Joey Logano winning the inaugural event in 2022, and Martin Truex, Jr. starting his season with a victory in February.

Now, a driver competing in the NASCAR Mexico Series will also have the opportunity to celebrate a triumph inside an international stadium that’s hosted two Super Bowls, two Olympics, a World Series, and countless other major sporting events.

“This is an incredible honor for the NASCAR Mexico Series and its drivers,” said Jimmy Morales, President and General Manager of the NASCAR Mexico Series. “The competition in our series is always intense, but I know our drivers will want nothing more than to become the first Mexican driver to win inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. This is going to be a race we will not soon forget.”

The roots of the NASCAR Mexico Series were developed in 2004, and three years later, it became NASCAR’s first-ever internationally sanctioned series. The series competes on tracks throughout nine major cities in Mexico, providing racing fans with some of the most intense racing on the planet.

Daniel Suarez, a NASCAR Cup Series winner and champion of the NASCAR Xfinity Series, began his stock car racing career in the NASCAR Mexico Series in 2008. Max Gutierrez and Andres Perez de Lara are other NASCAR Mexico Series talent who are currently working through NASCAR’s development ranks.

A full list of NASCAR Mexico Series drivers that will compete in the event on February 4th will be announced at a later date, as will the full schedule of events and entertainment. NASCAR on FOX will broadcast the Busch Light Clash, while Fox Sports 3 in Mexico will have coverage of the NASCAR Mexico Series event.
