NASCAR hauler parade down Las Vegas Strip canceled

Thursday’s annual NASCAR hauler parade down Las Vegas Boulevard preceding the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been canceled because of Sunday’s postponement of the Daytona 500.

“We did everything possible to facilitate having the parade,” LVMS president Chris Powell said. “Unfortunately, getting 50 or so 18-wheelers from Daytona Beach to North Carolina to Las Vegas in time for the hauler parade simply became a logistical impossibility.”

Because of Sunday’s rain at Daytona, race-team haulers will not arrive in Las Vegas in time to participate in the parade. Most of the transporters were expected to remain in Daytona after Monday’s race, return to North Carolina to trade out race cars, then make the cross-country trip to Las Vegas.
