The 2023 NASCAR season will officially get underway on Sunday, February 19. There will be an exhibition race on Sunday, February 5 to kick off the season. The 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum will take place at the Los Angeles Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. Qualifying will begin on Saturday, February 4 and continue on Sunday before the race gets started at 8 p.m. ET.
The weather for Saturday’s practice and qualifying race looks great! With the time difference, the action will get started late afternoon, so it won’t be cool enough to affect the cars. Sunday’s weather looks good as well, if it can stay dry.
