KEEPING TRADITION: The traditional hauler parade took place on the Las Vegas Strip on Wednesday (March 6, 2013) to kick off the Nascar race weekend on Friday, March 8.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - The Nascar Hauler Parade, traditional kick-off for the annual Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Nascar Weekend, rolled into the desert gambling capital on March 6 under the neon halo of the Las Vegas Strip.

The colorful 18-wheelers that carry the Nascar Sprint Cup Series race cars and equipment to the tracks began near the iconic 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign as darkness fell around 6pm, moving north on Las Vegas Boulevard and proceeding about eight kilometres to Sahara Avenue (hey's it's a desert town, OK?) to enter Interstate 15 and complete the journey to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

HAULER CHEER

More than 50 haulers took part in the parade as race fans on both sides of the Strip cheered on their favourite racing teams.

Nascar Weekend racing at the Superspeedway will open on Friday (March 8) with Stratosphere Pole Day.

The Nascar Nationwide Series will take centre stage on Saturday (March 9) with the annual Sam’s Town 300. The Nascar Sprint Cup Series 400 is scheduled for noon on Sunday (March 11).

Nascar Weekend brings 112 000 out-of-town race fans to Las Vegas.
