NASCAR fans are in for an even greater Hauler Parade this March to celebrate the kick-off of the NASCAR Auto Club 400 race weekend. On Thursday, March 17, the Auto Club Speedway will provide a new FanFest event and the signature NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Hauler Parade.

Stretching nearly a mile from first hauler to last, the annual Hauler Parade will start at 6 p.m. More than 40 NASCAR haulers will be staged throughout the day at the Quakes Stadium (LoanMart Field) located at 8408 Rochester Ave in Rancho Cucamonga.  Fans are encouraged to stop by, snap a “selfie” with their favorite drivers’ hauler, and watch the parade begin.

Added this year at the parade’s finish line, a St. Paddy’s Day FanFest presented by Bubba Burger will feature NASCAR driver appearances, live music, vendors and family-friendly entertainment in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone at Auto Club Speedway. The St. Paddy’s Day FanFest presented by Bubba Burger is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The public can pick up free tickets to attend FanFest at participating businesses.


The convoy of NASCAR haulers will travel along a six-mile route from Quakes Baseball Stadium to Auto Club Speedway. It will proceed North on Rochester, East on Church St. to Day Creek Blvd., South on Day Creek Blvd. to Victoria Gardens Lane, East on Victoria Gardens Lane to Baseline Road, East on Baseline Road to Cherry Avenue, and South on Cherry Avenue to Auto Club Speedway.


Two prime viewing areas for fans to enjoy the annual parade are in Rancho Cucamonga. They are Quakes Baseball Stadium (LoanMart Field) on 8408 Rochester, and Bass Pro Shops at 7777 Victoria Gardens Lane. The third is at the Auto Club Speedway along Cherry Ave in Fontana, as well as in the St. Paddy’s Day FanFest in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone at Auto Club Speedway.
