Due to the threat of torrential rain and flooding in the Los Angeles area throughout Sunday, NASCAR has announced that the Busch Light Clash at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has been moved up to 8:00 p.m. ET. Saturday night. It had initially been scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on Sunday night.

The event is still set to consist of a practice/qualifying session, which is set to begin at 5:35 p.m. ET, but there will no longer be four 25-lap heat races or a 75-lap last chance qualifier.

There is only set to be a 150-lap main event around the flat, purpose-built, quarter-mile oval inside the home of the USC Trojans. The practice/qualifying session is set to determine the starting lineup for the main event, though an additional driver is set to be added based on last year's standings. The field is set to consist of 23 drivers.
