The rivalry has officially been established; Ford Motor Company has broken Chevrolet’s incredible record title for Largest banner flown by a vehicle, at an astounding 383.18 sq meters (4,123.55 sq ft).
The attempt took place at NASCAR Ford Championship Weekend in Homestead, Florida (USA) using the iconic American flag as the banner for the record attempt.
Using the new 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty, the truck towed flag an amazing four laps around the Homestead-Miami Speedway’s 1.5 mile track.
The two companies that fought for the title are American-based car manufacturers, which explains the decision for the banner to be the brilliant red, white and blue of the American flag.
By topping Chevrolet’s record by nearly 1,000 sq ft, Ford has created a tough standard to beat.
We’ll see if Chevy decides to regain its title by countering the friendly, engine-grumbling competition that is now ongoing between companies.
