Busch Light Clash Saturday schedule

Saturday will be busy for NASCAR teams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The NASCAR Cup Series teams will race in The Busch Light Clash. Heavy rainfall forced NASCAR to reschedule Sunday’s event to 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.

The NASCAR Mexico Series teams will also race Saturday night on the purpose-built .25-mile track.

With the change in schedule, NASCAR will not hold the four heat races. The 22 fastest cars in practice will qualify for the Busch Light Clash. The 23rd spot will go to the driver with the most points from last season.
