LOS ANGELES — Mother Nature forced NASCAR’s hands with moving this year’s Busch Light Clash and NASCAR Mexico Series race from Sunday to Saturday. However, the action at the temporary 0.25-mile track at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was as intense as ever.

Beyond the wins scored by Denny Hamlin and Daniel Suárez, there were tensions, moral victories and notable moments that will keep the racing world buzzing a plenty for the next nine days. From Ryan Blaney’s worst to podium drive to Suárez’s emotional victory to cap Saturday night’s racing action, the 76th season of NASCAR kicked off in style.

Throughout the season, Photo Booth will feature the best shots from our talented photographers to friends of The Podium Finish. This week, take a glance at the superb shots by Luis Torres and Patrick Vallely with our inaugural “Photo Booth: The Best of the Busch Light Clash!”
