NASCAR Hauler Parade Rumbles into Sacramento, June 21
More than 50 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series haulers will rumble through the streets of Sacramento at the 2nd NASCAR Hauler Parade, June 21.
The NASCAR haulers, which will be en route to Sonoma for the Toyota Save Mart 350, June 22-24, will make their way over the Tower Bridge and around the State Capitol to greet Northern California NASCAR fans ready for big race in Sonoma.
You can expect to see haulers from Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and every other driver on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit. This marks the second ever hauler parade in Northern California and raceway officials are thrilled to bring it to Sacramento, home to our most avid race fans.
The parade will begin promptly at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, as the haulers depart their staging area and cross the Tower Bridge, heading for the State Capitol. The route is as follows:
- Cross Tower Bridge and drive up Capitol Mall.
- Right turn on 9th Street.
- Left turn on N Street.
- Left turn on 16th Street.
- Left turn on L Street.
- Haulers will then be directed to the freeway and head South on Hwy. 80 to the raceway in Sonoma, where they will be parked in the garage for the race weekend.
Race fans can catch the haulers all along the parade route, but are encouraged to head to L and 11th streets for the best view. The raceway will have a display there, as well as the popular Raceway Girls, Miss Sprint Cup representatives Kristen Beat and Kim Coon and tickets for the big race. This will be the heart of the action.
Mark Thursday, June 21, on your calendar so that we can give the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series a raucous Sacramento welcome as the 50 haulers rumble through town. Be sure to download the parade map on racesonoma.com, which lists the route, as well as best viewing points.
