World Record Pickup Truck Parade at Indy

World's Largest II

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.

World's Largest Indy II



Damn,I wish I could go and do that.That will be so cool to do...sigh.

Sounds like a bunch wierdos with way to much time on their hands.

With Chrysler Group's all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, the 2014 Ram Heavy Duty will deliver to best-in-class horsepower and best-in-class torque among pickups with gasoline engines.

Engineered to deliver capability, durability and bang for the buck, the largest displacement V-8 in its class provides a worthy gas-powered option to the segment's overall standard-bearer – the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.

Compelling numbers tell the story of the new 16-valve engine with 410 horsepower (306 kW) at 5,600 rpm and a peak torque rating of 429 lb.-ft. (582 N•m), at 4,000 rpm.

One of the enablers for such performance is an active dual-runner-length intake manifold optimized specifically for the Ram Heavy Duty lineup. The result is improved low-end torque without sacrificing high-end power.

The legendary HEMI architecture provides the foundation of the 90-degree V-8. But its advanced technology is decidedly forward-looking. Cooled exhaust-gas recirculation (CEGR), variable-valve timing (VVT) and Chrysler Group's trademark Fuel Saver cylinder-deactivation technology all contribute to efficiency and help to capitalize on every cubic inch.

The new 6.4-liter HEMI is standard on the 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission.

@Mark Williams
They have "Ute Musters" in Australia where thousands of Utes meet to break attendance records they do not do side by side parades but a lot of other activities.
Participants do a lot charities for local communities.
