NASCAR fans can see their favorite drivers’ haulers make their way up the Las Vegas Strip beginning at 6 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, March 9, as the city and Las Vegas Motor Speedway kick off the 2017 NASCAR Weekend. The parade is a favorite among racing fans and will begin at the Las Vegas welcome sign on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Approximately 40 brightly colored 18-wheeled haulers will receive a police escort as they parade up the Strip before making their way to Interstate 15 via Sahara Boulevard to head north to LVMS. The event returns to Las Vegas after a one-year hiatus.
The haulers will proceed to Speedway Boulevard and make their way through the LVMS tunnel under turns 1 and 2 to their garage stalls outside the Neon Garage. A much-anticipated convoy, the hauler parade is a great way for NASCAR fans to get excited about the action-packed weekend that awaits them March 10-12.
“The hauler parade is one of the unique events of our NASCAR Weekend, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it back to Las Vegas for our fans,” LVMS President Chris Powell said. “It’s quite a spectacle to see all of the haulers together, driving up one of the most famous streets in the world, and the parade serves notice to everyone in Las Vegas that NASCAR is in town. We’re looking forward to a great 2017 NASCAR Weekend, and this is the perfect way to get it all started.”
LVMS’ 2017 NASCAR Weekend begins with Stratosphere Pole Day on Friday, March 10, continues with the NASCAR Xfinity Series Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, March 11, and finishes with the 20th Kobalt 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, March 12.
