Kyle Busch will lead the starting lineup to the green flag in the Clash at the Los Angeles Coliseum, the first time the preseason NASCAR Cup Series exhibition race will be held on the temporary 0.25-mile track.

Busch will be followed in the next two rows by the winners of the other heat races Sunday: Tyler Reddick, Justin Haley and Joey Logano.

The 23-car main event was set by four 25-lap heats and two 50-lap qualifying races. The final Last Chance Qualifier was chaotic with seven yellow flags and initial winner Ty Dillon disqualified from the checkered flag for jumping the final restart.
