If you’re a Ram owner, you’ve got exactly one month to figure out how to get to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, to help the automaker break a Guinness World Records title for largest parade of pickup trucks. The “Ram Truck Round-up” event goes down Saturday, April 18, 2015, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air live on Sunday, April 19th.
Space is limited, only 500 truck slots are available, so you have to register on the Ram Round-up website. Participants will receive up to two tickets to Saturday’s ACM Party for a Cause Festival featuring top name country music performers and other activities. A $50 deposit for each ACM Party for a Cause Festival ticket is required to hold a place in the parade, which will be refunded to participants in cash when they check in at the event. There will also be a special car-crushing appearance by the RAMINATOR, and a chance to meet 9 time MTRA Driver of the Year Mark Hall.
“Everything is always bigger in Texas and Ram, America’s fastest-growing truck brand, is making sure this year’s ACM Awards celebration in Dallas will prove this once again,” said Robert Hegbloom, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ram Truck Brand, FCA – North America. “The ‘Ram Truck Round-up’ is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our loyal truck owners to be a part of a special record-breaking rally and pickup parade in the largest truck market in the country.”
