Bowman Gray Stadium, nestled in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, boasts a rich history dating back to stock-car racing’s earliest days. Since 1949, this quarter-mile track has hosted grassroots events, becoming a beloved fixture for fans and drivers alike. Now, NASCAR has stepped in to manage racing operations, securing a lease with the City of Winston-Salem through December 2050.

The Clash at the Coliseum, held in Los Angeles, has been a thrilling prelude to the NASCAR Cup Series season. However, starting in 2025, it’s set to fade away, creating an opportunity for NASCAR to return to Bowman Gray Stadium. Could this historic track become the new home for the Clash?
