Back by popular demand, Darlington Raceway announced today that the NASCAR Cup Series Hauler Parade will return after a three-year hiatus for the Crown Royal presents Darlington Labor Day Race Weekend.

The parade will be held Friday, Sept. 1, with the route beginning at Florence-Darlington Technical College and ending at The Track Too Tough to Tame. Beginning at 4 p.m., fans are invited to the Florence-Darlington Technical College staging area, where they can take photos with their favorite haulers while enjoying music and food from local vendors.

The parade was a long-standing Darlington Raceway tradition until the COVID-19 pandemic sidelined the parade in 2020.

“It‘s terrific that we can bring back this incredible experience for our fans,” said Kerry Tharp Darlington Raceway President. “We are grateful for Florence-Darlington Technical College, President, Dr. Jermaine Ford, and the administrative staff for their help with bringing back this great tradition, which is a fitting way to say thank you for all of the fan support we receive each year.”

The haulers will depart Florence-Darlington Technical College at 6:00 p.m. and make their way to historic Darlington Raceway where they will load into the NASCAR Cup Series Garage.
