Louisville, KY was full of horsepower this past weekend. Ram Trucks was the official truck of the 143rd Kentucky Derby® on May 6th at Churchill Downs®. Ram Trucks entered its eighth consecutive year as the exclusive automotive partner to the races.
To celebrate Ram Truck’s continuing tradition with Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, the trainer of the winning horse, Todd Pletcher, was rewarded a one-of-a-kind special 143rd Derby edition Ram 2500 Limited truck. The special truck is in Brilliant Black and includes blue Kentucky Derby 143rd logos on the left and right rear panels and a hand-painted Kentucky Derby rose badge on the grille.
The races began on Friday, May 5, and were opened by the Kentucky Oaks Survivors Parade. The parade is a march of breast and ovarian cancer survivors and supporters. Those who attended the races, as well as fans at home, had the opportunity to check out Ram Truck’s Pink-wrapped Ram 3500 Limited dually leading the march. The Ram ProMaster® and the Ram ProMaster City® were the official transport of the traditional garlands for each day’s winning horses.
From Ram Trucks badges on the jockeys themselves to onsite truck displays, Ram Trucks had a strong presence both onsite and during the on-air broadcast.
Ram Trucks surely dominated the field this past weekend at Churchill Downs.
