Las Vegas Strip to Host NASCAR Hauler Parade on Feb. 26
LAS VEGAS – In 2008, tens of thousands of people lined the Las Vegas Strip to watch the NASCAR team haulers parade down one of the country’s most famous streets. Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm for last year’s parade, the haulers are coming back this year.

The 2009 edition of the NASCAR Hauler Parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26. The colorful NASCAR team haulers, transporting the Sprint Cup race cars that will compete later that week in the Shelby 427, will parade north on the Strip among the world’s most well-known hotels and casinos.

“During the week of the NASCAR events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, this entire town becomes NASCAR crazy,” said Chris Powell, LVMS general manager. “The response from last year’s parade was amazing. People lined the Strip from Mandalay Bay to the Sahara, and the drivers of these big rigs really enjoyed it as well. Every opportunity we get to take NASCAR to the Strip is something special. We’re also very appreciative of the support from the various public agencies that have helped make this happen.”

The transporters will be staged at approximately 10 a.m. in the right lane of Las Vegas Boulevard just south of Russell Road. Once all trucks are lined up, the haulers will move north on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The haulers will proceed the roughly five miles to Sahara Avenue before returning to Interstate 15 and the short ride north to the speedway.

The speedway expects 48 to 50 haulers to take part in the parade, which will conclude with the haulers arriving at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in preparation for the March 1 Shelby 427.

Race fans will be able to watch the hauler parade from both sides of the Strip and from any of the properties along Las Vegas Boulevard.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a subsidiary of Speedway Motorsports, a leading marketer and promoter of motorsports entertainment in the United States. In addition to LVMS, the Company owns and operates the following premiere speedways: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Infineon Raceway, Lowe's Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. The Company provides souvenir merchandising services through its SMI Properties subsidiary, and manufactures and distributes smaller-scale, modified racing cars through its 600 Racing subsidiary. The company also owns Performance Racing Network (PRN), which broadcasts syndicated motorsports programming to more than 725 stations nationwide including satellite radio and NASCAR.com.
