Who doesn't like seeing big groups of trucks together? You may enjoy checking out truck mods that fellow drivers have implemented or seeing how certain models that could be perfect for your next off-road vehicle run. No matter what you appreciate at these gatherings, there's a good chance you get a thrill from seeing so many top-notch trucks together in one place. If that's the case, then the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the place to be at the beginning of August, as organizers are trying to break the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks.
To honor the launch of a new SiriusXM channel called Rural Radio, promoters are attempting to rally pickup truck owners in the Midwest to participate in the parade. All vehicles must circle a minimum of 2 miles at less than 5 miles per hour, with all participating rides completing the full length of the route to qualify for the world record.
The current world record for the Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks is 273. It was set Aug. 25, 2013 at the Dresden Raceway in Ontario, Canada, but if all goes according to plan, this upcoming event should surpass that mark.
Aside from the procession, visitors will be able to check out the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum, examine some of the coolest truck modifications on display and enjoy the live entertainment offered at the event. Additionally, about 20 classic tractors will be showcased to go along with the Antique Tractor Parade, PickupTrucks.com reports.
All are invited to head to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to take part in this event, and drivers are encouraging to decorate their pickups in whatever manner they see fit. Of course, some will likely want to keep it simple so their truck mods are the highlight.
