The 21st annual Crown Royal 400 at the Brickyard highlights the Super Weekend at the Brickyard, with action on both the oval and road course tracks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Thursday through Sunday, July 24-27. NASCAR’s Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series are joined at “the Brickyard” by the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, both of which will race on the road course.

On Thursday night at 5 p.m. ET, the sixth annual Hauler Parade heads down Main St. in Speedway, IN. The free event will feature more than 40 Sprint Cup Series haulers arriving at 6 p.m. ET; the haulers will then park on Main St. between 10th and 15th Sts. so fans can get a close-up look at the rigs. NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett will serve as grand marshal for the parade. Find out more about the event here.

Following Saturday’s Nationwide Series race, the Brickfest Music Festival will feature performances by country artists Justin Moore and The Band Perry.
