Caleb Williams named Honorary Starter for NASCAR Cup Series event
Caleb Williams, USC’s star QB and Heisman Trophy winner for the 2022 season, was announced as the honorary starter for the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, a NASCAR Cup Series event that will take place on Feb. 5
Williams is no stranger to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, of course. He led one of USC’s best seasons since the mid-2000s in 2022, throwing for 4,537 yards, 42 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions. There really was not a close 2nd place for the award.
