Go Metro for free to NASCAR at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum next weekend!

Go Metro on Sunday, February 4 to the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. All rides are FREE that day.  

The 3rd annual Clash at the Coliseum is the official start to the NASCAR season and sets the stage for the Daytona 500.  

Come out for a full day of family fun including the return of NASCAR Fan Fest that includes amazing race day upgrades, Pre-Race Party, and the Fan Track Walk. 

GRAMMY-nominated and multi-platinum recording artist Machine Gun Kelly, also known as MGK, will give a show-stopping race break performance during the 2024 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum. 

This year’s race will be preceded by the inaugural King Taco La Batalla en el Coliseo at 1:30 p.m., with actor and stand-up comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias as the Grand Marshal and the opportunity to give the first command to “start your engines!” for the 2024 NASCAR season at the L.A. Coliseum.  


Fans heading to the races can use Metro’s E Line train and exit at the Expo Park/USC Station, which is a short walk to the stadium. The E Line runs between Santa Monica and East L.A., where there are connections to Metro’s B/D (Red/Purple) Line subway and many bus lines. 

Fans can also take the Metro J (Silver Line) and exit at 37th St/USC Station, which is about a 10-minute walk to the Coliseum.

  1. There are also connections to the A line that runs from Long Beach and Azusa

  2. I saw in your February newsletter that rides are free Feb. 4 because of Transit Equity Day. The newsletter article links to an older article, “Why we’re offering free rides on Transit Equity Day on Saturday, Feb. 4
    by LA Metro , January 25, 2023.” It’s confusing, though, because in 2024 Feb. 4 is on a Sunday. Reading the older article was a real mind bender.

  3. It should probably be mentioned that February 4th is Transit Equity Day, aka Rosa Parks’ birthday, which is the reason for the free rides. Other bus and rail agencies will be fare free that day, including Metrolink and Big Blue Bus, to my knowledge, and probably several more.
