BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Truckstop set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest toy truck sentence in celebration of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 11-17. National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a time where the country celebrates and shows appreciation for the hardworking truck drivers who help keep America running. Using more than 2,000 branded big rig toy trucks, Truckstop spelled ‘Truck drivers are the rockstars of the road!‘ at their Boise, Idaho office on September 9, 2022.
“I was excited to join the team at Truckstop for their record-breaking GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt,” says Michael Empric, official adjudicator from Guinness World Records. “Seeing 2,098 toy trucks spelling out a sentence recognizing truck drivers for their crucial work was officially amazing!”
“Truck drivers are the backbone of America. We wanted to do something big to show how much we appreciate them, and there isn’t anything much bigger than setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title,” said Kendra Tucker, chief executive officer, Truckstop. “We appreciate the long hours and sacrifices truck drivers make. They truly are the rockstars of the road.”
The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest toy truck sentence, officially the longest toy car sentence, stretched more than 65 feet wide and almost 14 feet tall and took more than 30 Truckstop employees to accomplish.
The toy trucks will be donated to Western Idaho Community Action Partnership (WICAP), a non-profit serving several counties in Idaho since 1965. Their programs serve community members of all ages, and the toy trucks will be donated to local children in need ahead of and during the holiday season.
