RURAL RADIO Sets New Guinness World Record at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for World's Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks
Indianapolis, IN, (www.ruralradio147.com) - Just moments ago at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, RURAL RADIO set the record for the World's Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks. A total of 386 pickup trucks, of every make and model, were officially added to the record book, smashing the previously held record of just 273, which was set in 2012 on the Dresden Raceway in Ontario, Canada.
More than 500 pickup trucks were on parade and display today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. However, 386 officially met the strict requirements and parade standards as specified byGuinness World Records rules and the officiating judge.
In addition to the World's Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks, more than 300 antique tractors were also on display and included in their own special infield parade. Spectators were in attendance from all 50 states, as well as several international visitors. Pickup trucks from more than 30 states were registered and represented in the parade.
