Fox Sports 1’s cameras showed an empty flag stand Friday at Auto Club Speedway after a swarm of bees took over, forcing NASCAR to abandoned the post during Xfinity Series practice.

A spokesperson for Auto Club Speedway told NBC Sports that a local company was contacted to relocate the bees. The company will have someone at the track the rest of the weekend.

NASCAR stated it would use a temporary flag stand for Friday night’s Sprint Cup qualifying.

Bees at Auto Club Speedway are not a new issue.

Bees formed multiple hives underneath the raised car lift of Derrike Cope’s hauler last year.
