For a second year in a row, NASCAR is opening its season with a takeover of the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum in Expo Park takes place Sunday, airing live on Fox starting at 5 p.m.
The prep: Crews have spent the last several weeks covering USC's home football field with a paved three-lane track to put on a race and show. Qualifying races start Saturday afternoon after a fan track walk.
The music: On Sunday, there will be heat races and final qualifying, followed by a concert featuring Cypress Hill. After the race starts at 5 p.m., there's still more music: a race break performance by Wiz Khalifa.
The track: It's a short track, with the 27 competitors making 150 laps to cover about 37 miles.
