Default World's Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks

WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT



World’s Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks


Indianapolis Motor Speedway



With your help RFD-TV will break the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks’ on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Saturday August 3rd 2013.

The current record for the ‘Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks’ is 273. Dresden Agricultural Society set the record August 25, 2012 on the Dresden Raceway in Ontario, Canada.

All tractors and pickup trucks must pre-register by filling out the form online at www.rfdtv.com.

All registrations must be received by July 25th in order for their pickup truck to be in the parade, or their classic tractor to be considered and scheduled to be on Talkin Tractors

RFD-TV, RURAL TV, and RURAL RADIO will join forces with SiriusXM Satellite Radio to produce a day of celebration of the American farmer at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The day will feature an antique tractor display on the infield of the famous track, music at the finish line, plus food served by national commodity organizations. The grand finale will be an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Parade Of Pickup Trucks”.

Families are encouraged to attend, and in fact, participate in the day’s events and the parade. Tractors and trucks will check in between 6am-9am on Saturday, August 3rd, and then be placed in position for the tractor display or parade. Gates will then open at 10am for the public.

The parade around the track will take place at noon, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony by executives of SiriusXM and Rural Media Group commemorating the launch of RURAL RADIO on SiriusXM channel 80. Music, food, and review of the antique tractors will continue until the grounds close at 6pm.

I'd love to be part of this parade too.. but I'm a little out of the way.
Maybe next year we could do a National Farmers week. and maybe get all Speed Ways and Dragways to get on board at the same date and time.
I'd love to head it up here in northern Ontario at our new Drag way

Just another friendly reminder of the up coming Parade for those planning to attend
World Record Pickup Truck Parade at Indy

Posted by Mark Williams | August 1, 2013

Do you live anywhere near Indianapolis? Are you without any big plans this weekend? And would you like to be apart of history in the making? Then you're in luck.
In honor of a new SiriusXM channel called Rural Radio (Channel 80), the promoters are sponsoring a huge day of trucks and tractors at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with music, displays, games, track access and plenty of other summer fun. It will conclude with an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for a parade of pickup trucks around the track. We'll have an update to report on whether they succeeded or not.
For details about the event, click here to download the PDF flyer.
