Ram trucks set Guinness record

by Bill Cawthon on

Ram trucks gathered at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, today for a special event.

Ram pickup owners came from as far away as Canada to to set a new Guinness World Record for the largest parade of pickup trucks.

The parade was part of Ram Truck’s participation as the “Official Truck” of the Academy of Country Music Awards.

A total of 451 Ram trucks were in today’s “Ram Truck Round-Up” at the AT&T stadium (formerly, and probably better, known as Cowboys Stadium), in Arlington, which is located between Forth Worth and Dallas.


The parade route started on the east side of AT&T Stadium in Arlington and traveled approximately 3.2 miles around the stadium and neighboring Globe Life Park grounds.

The new record beats the previous benchmark of 438 pickups.


This year is the 50th anniversary of the ACM Awards. They will be broadcast live tomorrow, Sunday, April 19, at 8:00 PM Eastern on CBS.
