RFD-TV is thrilled to be the Opening Weekend Sponsor at the Nebraska State Fair and what better way to open the fair, than to break a World Record!

On Saturday, August 25th at 1:00 central time at Fonner Park in Grand Island, NE. RFD-TV will attempt to break the Guinness World Record of the "ClassLargest Parade of ic Tractors". The current record is 745, set in Germany in 2008 and according to the Guinness guidelines, Classic Tractors MUST be 30yrs or older to participate.

Max Armstrong, Farm Broadcaster from This Week In AgriBusiness will MC the parade, introducing each tractor on-site & on-air, as RFD-TV broadcasts live.

To join in and be part of history-in the-making, fill out the registration form on our website at http://www.rfdtv.com/nebraskastatefair/index.php/tractor-parade or download the PDF version and mail it in.

Family and friends will be able to watch the parade from a reserved section in the grandstand and afterwards take a closer look, as all the tractors will be on display around the Fonner Park track. Family and friends will also have VIP reserved seating for the Marty Stuart Show, later that evening. Just be sure to fill in the number of seats you need reserved, for both the parade and the concert.

Now, a little bit about the Armstrong Family 560 in the picture along with Max. Max tells us it's a '62 vintage. This tractor belonged to his dad and they farmed in Southern Indiana. The tractor was sold to a neighbor and was returned to Max a few years back. A lot of work went into restoring this old machine by the Prairie Central High School FFA Chapter in Fairbury, IL. It turned out really well and as you can tell, Max was very pleased. Considering the tractor had been turned over on it's top! You can learn more from the video.

Welcome to ATF, glad to have you on board. Best of luck to RFD-TV in breaking the record!

I had the pleasure of meeting Max a couple of weeks ago at the Got To Be NC Festival in Raleigh, NC. I think his crew even took some video footage of my '49 original "Blue Ribbon" Farmall Cub.
