Check out the NASCAR Ford parade Thursday in Charlotte
Ford Racing stars from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will participate in a drive with their all-new 2013 NASCAR Fusions through the streets of Uptown Charlotte on Thursday, Jan. 24 starting at 11:15 a.m.
The route will start from the NASCAR Hall of Fame complex on South Caldwell Street and then turn right onto Stonewall. From there, the route will turn right onto Tryon Street and then right onto Fifth Street, where it will go past Time Warner Cable Arena.
The parade will then turn right onto South Caldwell Street and then right onto Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard before ending up at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
“We’re extremely grateful to our friends at the NASCAR Hall of Fame and city officials in Charlotte who have helped in making this event possible,” said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. “Our 2013 NASCAR Fusion is something we’re extremely proud of because it looks so much like the cars we drive on the street. Now we’re going to literally be able to see that happen when our NASCAR Fusions take to the streets of Uptown Charlotte.”
