LOS ANGELES (AP) — NASCAR is in Los Angeles a week ahead of the Super Bowl with its wildest idea yet.

The exhibition Clash has always been the unofficial season-opening NASCAR version of the Pro Bowl.

For the firs time, it has been moved out of Daytona Beach, Florida, and will instead be staged at the Coliseum in a made-for-Fox Sports spectacular.

A temporary quarter-mile track has been built inside the iconic venue.

The race on Sunday night will also mark the debut of the Next Gen car, a project several years in development that was delayed a season by the pandemic.
