Joey Logano Wins NASCAR's Season Opening Busch Light Clash At The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

In the first-ever NASCAR race at the L.A. Coliseum, Joey Logano was able to take the lead from Kyle Busch and pull away to win the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum to open the 2022 season. Logano's victory was the second of his career in the Clash, a preseason exhibition event that has traditionally served as a prelude to the new season and the Daytona 500.

“I can’t believe that we’re here,” Logano said. “This is an amazing event. Congratulations, NASCAR. It’s such a huge step in our industry to be able to do this and put on an amazing race for everybody.

“This is big. My wife’s having a baby tomorrow, our third one, so pretty big weekend for us. … I told her if you’re having the baby, I’m just running right off the track from here.”

Logano led the final 35 laps for his second victory in the season-opening exhibition race (and first since 2017). It was his first Cup win in nearly a year (since the Bristol dirt race in March 2021).

“This is special to get the first Next Gen win,” Logano added. “The first win at the Coliseum. It’s a special one. We’re going to have some fun and celebrate it.”
