Whether you’re an avid Guinness Book World Record follower or just have the book as a coffee table read, you can admit there are lots of awards that are fascinating and unbelievable. Well, Chevy is joining the Guinness Book, so now you definitely have a reason to check it out!
So just what did Chevy do to earn a Guinness World Record? Well, in Fort Worth, Texas, the 2017 Silverado HD did some serious work! They set the record for World’s Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle.
You may ask, “Is that a record?” But it is! Really, anything can be a record. The occasion was the State Fair of Texas, and appropriately enough, Texas is the largest truck market. The 2017 Silverado flew the U.S. flag for the event, and broke a record in the process.
To set the record, the Silverado had to drive at least 100 meters flying the flag. The flag could not touch the ground for the record to be passed. But don’t worry, the Silverado passed with flying colors! The flag, which was almost 3,200 square feet, was flown effortlessly by the Silverado for four laps around the track. That’s one and a half miles!
