Fox Sports 1’s cameras showed an empty flag stand Friday at Auto Club Speedway after a swarm of bees took over, forcing NASCAR to abandoned the post during Xfinity Series practice.
A spokesperson for Auto Club Speedway told NBC Sports that a local company was contacted to relocate the bees. The company will have someone at the track the rest of the weekend.
NASCAR stated it would use a temporary flag stand for Friday night’s Sprint Cup qualifying.
Bees at Auto Club Speedway are not a new issue.
