UPDATE: According to Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the annual NASCAR Hauler Parade has been canceled for this week in Las Vegas.

According to a news release, "Due to the rain postponement of the Daytona 500, race-team haulers will not arrive in Las Vegas in time to participate in the parade on Las Vegas Boulevard."

"We did everything possible to facilitate having the parade,” Las Vegas Motor Speedway President Chris Powell said in a statement. “Unfortunately, getting 50 or so 18-wheelers from Daytona Beach to North Carolina to Las Vegas in time for the hauler parade simply became a logistical impossibility."

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Marking the start of racing weekend, NASCAR's Hauler Parade will return to the Las Vegas Strip in February.

Fans can watch their favorite drivers' haulers make their way up the Las Vegas Strip beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 20. The parade will begin at the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Kicking off 2020 NASCAR Weekend, approximately 40 brightly colored 18-wheeled NASCAR Cup Series haulers will receive a police escort as they drive north on the Las Vegas Strip before making their way west on Sahara Avenue and hitting Interstate-15 headed for the 1.5-mile speedway, a news release said.

The haulers will proceed to Speedway Boulevard and make their way through the Las Vegas Motor Speedway tunnel under turns 1 and 2 to their garage stalls outside the Neon Garage.

LVMS’s spring 2020 NASCAR Weekend begins with the Strat 200 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on Friday, Feb. 21, continues with the Strat qualifying for the NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, Feb. 22, and finishes with the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, Feb. 23.

I don't understand why? If they are here in time to race, why can't they make the drive down the strip?
