LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - One of the favorite traditions for Las Vegas race fans won't be happening this week.

It was announced on Monday that there won't be a NASCAR Hauler Parade down Las Vegas Boulevard this year.

Blame can be put squarely on Mother Nature for that. Rain caused a postponement of Sunday's Daytona 500 until Monday, and race organizers say that there's simply not enough time to hold a hauler parade with that extra day being lost.

In years past, Race Weekend would officially kick off with the haulers heading north up The Strip. From there, they would take I-15 north to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and settle in for the weekend.

The hauler parade is the only casualty from the Daytona Delay. A full weekend schedule looms, with the Strat 200 Truck Series Race on Friday, The Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, and the Pennzoil 400 Presented by Jiffy Lube on Sunday.
