The parade, scheduled for Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET, promised a spectacle for fans as they line up along Broadway, eagerly awaiting the sight of their favorite NASCAR drivers and their roaring racing machines. The excitement is palpable, and the parade adds an element of grandeur to Nashville’s already lively atmosphere.

The week’s celebrations extend beyond the parade, with events catering to both hardcore NASCAR enthusiasts and casual fans alike. The NASCAR House, situated at Fifth and Broadway, is a central hub for fan activities. Open from noon to 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday, it offers an immersive experience for fans to engage with the sport. NASCAR House offers Q&A panels with top drivers, including Kyle Busch, Ross Chastain, Denny Hamlin, and Kevin Harvick, plus interactive exhibits.
