Kentucky Derby Winning Trainer will be Awarded a Special Edition Ram 2500 Truck
Ram is the official automotive sponsor of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, and will present a one-of-a-kind 143rd Kentucky Derby edition Ram 2500 Limited truck to the Kentucky Derby-winning horse's trainer following the race on Saturday, May 6.
As part of Ram's sponsorship, fans at the track and at home will enjoy an immersive, weekend-long multi-media Ram Truck experience. Ram ProMaster vans will be used to transport the traditional Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby garlands, plus the winning jockeys' bouquets, to the racetrack. There will also be special themed truck displays and giveaway items throughout the grounds, where fans can take commemorative pictures.
Ram and TwinSpires.com are partnering on a 2017 Ram 3500 Limited truck giveaway competition for people in attendance at the Kentucky Derby and people watching the race from home. While the giveaway does require predicting the 143rd Kentucky Derby's first four finishers, the contest is completely free and does not involve wagering at all.
In a release, Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global, commented, “Ram trucks are the perfect match for horse owners, trainers and riders, and partnering with America’s premiere racing events is a great way to demonstrate our commitment to these customers. With the longest-lasting pickup trucks on the market and class-leading capabilities, Ram trucks are well-deserving of the ‘Official Truck of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby’ status."
