As a part of the inaugural Clash at the Coliseum festivities, award winning Latin music entertainer and co-owner of Trackhouse Racing Pitbull gave a performance and had the fans out of their seats dancing.
As a part of the pre-race festivities on February 5 when the Busch Light Clash returns to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for some short track racing, fans will once again will have some Latin music with a performance from Latin Hip-Hop artists Cypress Hill. California natives Louis “B-Real” Freese, Senen “Sen Dog” Reyes, Eric “Bobo” Correa, and DJ Lord -, better known as Cypress Hill – are seasoned music veterans who have been performing for over 30 years.
NASCAR senior vice president for racing development and strategy Ben Kennedy spoke on the news saying, “what a tremendous addition to the 2023 Busch Light Clash. Cypress Hill are cultural icons, not only in Los Angeles but around the world. We can’t wait for them to perform for our fans during this historic event.”
Cypress Hill was the first Latin American Hip-Hop group to have a platinum selling album (selling at least one million copies). And in 2019 they became the first Hip-Hop group to have a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Cypress Hill co-founder Sen Dog spoke of the upcoming performance saying, “NASCAR drivers have the mentality of taking it to the limit on every lap, and we take the same approach with our music. We’re excited to have NASCAR return to our backyard, and we look forward to bringing some South Gate style to all of the NASCAR fans at the LA Coliseum.”
In the coming weeks, NASCAR will be announcing more performances and celebrities to join the festivities at The Clash.
