FFA Involved in Organizing Longest-Ever Pickup Truck Parade


FFA members from throughout the Midwest with a penchant for their pickup trucks can help attempt to set a world record next month in Indianapolis. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, food, live entertainment and a classic tractor parade will be capped by a 2 p.m. attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records mark for a parade of pickup trucks - a one-lap trek around the racetrack.

The current world record for a pickup truck parade stands at 273 pick-up trucks, a mark set by the Dresden Agricultural Society on Aug. 25, 2012, on the Dresden Raceway in Ontario, Canada.

FFA members - and pickup truck enthusiasts from throughout the region - are welcome at IMS Saturday to join in the world-record-breaking attempt.

There is no cost for participants to enter the parade. The general public is invited to IMS for the day-long celebration at no cost as well.
