HARRISBURG, Pa. — It’s a big weekend for auto racing in our state as the stars of NASCAR  return to the Poconos.

NASCAR fans zoomed to the Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg today to get a first look at the NASCAR haulers. The haulers– which carry the race cars and equipment for all the teams– stopped at the complex before they tool part in the state’s first-ever Hauler Parade Thursday afternoon.

“It’s awesome,  I’d love to do it one day but these guys have years of experience and they know what they’re doing so for them to have it at the farm show and actually come up and see it up close and personal to touch have you bring your kids and your family I think it’s a nice experience,”  NASCAR fan, Michael Boruta, said.

Governor Tom Corbett joined in leading the hauler procession. The haulers even drove around the Capitol Complex. The parade featured trucks from various NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams.
