Print SONOMA, Calif. (June 17, 2016) – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series haulers will rumble through the streets of Sacramento at the 6th annual NASCAR Hauler Parade on Thursday, June 23.

The NASCAR haulers, which will be en route to Sonoma Raceway for the Toyota/Save Mart 350,June 24-26, will make their way over the Tower Bridge and around the State Capitol on the way to greet Northern California NASCAR fans ready for the big race in Sonoma.

You can expect to see haulers from Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and many other drivers on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit. This marks the sixth consecutive hauler parade in Northern California and raceway officials are thrilled to bring it to Sacramento, home to some of our most avid race fans.

The parade will begin promptly at noon on Thursday, June 23, 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 towards Capitol Mall.
  • Right turn on 3rd 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 Sonoma Raceway, where they will be parked in the garage for the race weekend. The haulers will arrive at the raceway at approximately 2 p.m.

Race fans can catch the haulers all along the parade route, but are encouraged to head to the corner of 11th and L streets for the best view. Sonoma Raceway will have a display there, as well as the popular Raceway Girls, giveaways and race tickets.  This will be the heart of the action.

original State Senator Jim Nielsen will be on hand to present the president of the Transporter Drivers of Motorsports Association (TDMA) an official State Assembly Proclamation, officially naming June 23, 2016, “NASCAR Day” in the City of Sacramento. A $5,000 donation will also be made to the Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, on behalf of the Transporter Drivers of Motorsports Association.
