ActiveRain Members * KNOW your local NASCAR Track * BLOG your local HAULER Parade...

By

In TRUE NASCAR fashion * the ORDINARY routine of getting NASCAR cars and teams to their weekend tracks for races has become an EVENT.  

ActiveRain members who live near Las Vegas will have an AWESOME opportunity to blog about the PREMIER NASCAR Hauler Parade down the Las Vegas strip Thursday/tomorrow 6 to 8P.  I love the photos of the haulers that are shiny and sleek with their headlights on!

It is my understanding that these parades originally started as a promotion for the weekend races to the local population and then became a "happening" due to sponsors and local community involvement.

The LasVegas Sun newspapers actually has e-mail and cel phone "alerts" for this annual event.  They are FREE and are a GREAT FAMILY event.

The March 27 race is in Fontana, CA and the Auto-Club Speedway has an awesome promotion on their website of the route and the stops where sponsors will have promotions AND FREE hats for those at the Bass Pro Shop stop....HEY!  A FREE Hat!

50+ years ago I can remember going to the Circus Parade when the animals and performers departed the train station on the way to the fairgrounds....THIS was an EXCITING FAMILY event - and it's FREE

...Yes!  I blog about NASCAR!

I never thought about it, but something like this surely would be very similar to a holiday parade through town. I'll bet it is a fun event to watch and great for kids to see. Doesn't surprise me at all that sponsors have become involved as it truly looks like an 'event', and surely gathers a crowd. Fun and free...good to have those options these days! I hope it's enjoyed by the communties the caravan passes through!

Good Morning Wallace, Never heard of this before, reminds me of that song "Convoy." This would be pretty cool to see, but I'm pretty sure this won't be happening here in MN.

Have an AWESOME day!

The EVENING parade from Las Vegas tomorrow night will be awesome....they always seem to get a shot of the Wynn hotel where the NASCAR Banquet is held in December.

Well that's something I have not heard of and I suppose because they won't ever come to the islands. I bet it's quite an impressive sight though and would love to see it!
