LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — NASCAR is set to parade about 35 cars through Lexington, with a stop to allow fans to take pictures with their favorite team hauler in advance of the inaugural race at the Kentucky Speedway on Saturday

The cars are scheduled to be on display at a Wal-Mart in Lexington at 10:30 a.m. EDT Wednesday.

Kentucky Speedway spokesman Jesse Harris told The Lexington Herald-Leader that the cars will roll through the city starting at about 12:15 p.m. EDT.

The parade route starts on Sir Barton Way and goes left onto Winchester Road, left on Midland Avenue, right onto East Main Street, and then right onto Newtown Pike.

Hauler stops will also be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday in downtown Louisville and Cincinnati, but only Lexington will have a parade.
