LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The fan-favorite NASCAR Hauler Parade is expanding its route this year to include downtown Las Vegas.

NASCAR fans can see their favorite drivers’ haulers drive down the Las Vegas Strip beginning at 6 p.m. on Feb. 28.

Approximately 40 brightly colored 18-wheeled Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series haulers will receive a police escort starting at the welcome to Las Vegas sign heading north on Las Vegas Boulevard to Fremont Street downtown, before hitting the highway towards the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The haulers will then make their way through the LVMS tunnel under turns 1 and 2 to their garage stalls outside the Neon Garage.

This fan-favorite event helps kick off the spring 2019 NASCAR Weekend.

“It’s quite a thrill to see the beautifully wrapped NASCAR haulers take over the Las Vegas Strip, and we’re excited to add downtown Las Vegas for this year’s parade,” LVMS President Chris Powell said.

Fans attending the second annual Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center will also be able to see the parade along with appearances from NASCAR drivers and other athletes, according to an event spokesperson.

The LVMS’s spring 2019 NASCAR Weekend is scheduled for March 1-3.

It includes the Strat 200 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on Friday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday and finishes with the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday.
