Ford Super Duty earns world flag-pulling record, because America

Something tells us there are bigger flags out there to pull, so don't expect this record to last forever.

John Harrelson / Harrelson Photography Inc.,18-20 November, 2016, Homestead, Florida USA HOMESTEAD, Fla., Nov. 19, 2016 – All-new 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty claims GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ™ title for the World’s Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle, pulling a 45 by 92 foot, 4,124 U.S. flag over four laps at Homestead-Miami Speedway’s 1.5 mile track Saturday morning.

Building the best truck is all about being able to tow more or haul more. It's a constant battle for numerical supremacy. Ford's 2017 Super Duty just picked up a world record to this end, pulling the largest American flag to date.

Ford earned a record for pulling a 45-by-92-foot flag at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. Chevrolet held the previous record, which was set earlier this year when a Chevrolet pickup pulled a 40-by-80-foot American flag at Texas Motor Speedway. The official name for the Guinness record is "World's Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle."

The flag was probably quite heavy, but something tells me it falls well within the capabilities of the Super Duty. The F-450 involved in the record puts out an earth-twisting 925 pound-feet of torque, which helps it achieve a 21,000-pound tow rating, which jumps to 32,500 pounds when using the gooseneck hitch. There's bound to be a bigger flag out there, and if not, another automaker is sure to make one. This record won't hold for too long.
