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!
