Greg mentioned in The News last week the story of an attempt to beat the previous world record of Guinness Book of World Records World’s Largest Parade of Pickups. This was a promotion undertaken by RFDTV and their new Rural Radio XM channel, and it was, by all counts, wildly successful. The previous record of 273 pickemups was set last year at Dresden Raceway in Ontario (that’s in Canada). I’m happy to report that the record was not only beaten, but positively crushed. Over 500 pickups of all sizes and configurations lined up for what must have been the largest starting grid in the history of closed-circuit race tracks.
Taking their places on the grid.
I would consider an El Camino a car first, but that’s just me. Still great to see one so nice.
I see lots of trucks I would love to drive. How about you?
Sitting in Turn 4, waiting to take the green flag. Love that five-window Chevy.
It wasn’t a race, of course; it wasn’t even fast. Speed was limited to just 5mph (my truck idles faster than that!), and drivers had to keep 10 feet between them. Still, the sight, sound, and smell of 500 trucks rolling past the yard of bricks must have been quite the sensation.
Did any of you make it to Indy this weekend? Have any photos to share?
