NASCAR Holdings has held discussions with the Dodgers about holding a NASCAR race at the historic Dodger Stadium in the coming years, according to people familiar with the matter, one of the options that‘s been evaluated in Southern California. With the Fontana-based Auto Club Speedway now partially demolished and some believing NASCAR‘s L.A. Coliseum experiment has run its course, the racing series has been evaluating other places to race in Southern California.

The chances of such a race happening for next year was unclear, as were the other viable options. But NASCAR President Steve Phelps told Fox Sports during Daytona 500 week that NASCAR would be racing next year in Southern California, raising expectations that the series will make its way to the market in 2025 at one venue or another. NASCAR and the Dodgers did not respond to requests for comment. It was also unclear whether the event would be a street-circuit style race around the venue or a short-track style temporary circuit built inside the ballpark. The Dolphins have set up such a street circuit around Hard Rock Stadium for the annual F1 race it now hosts.
