If you didn’t visit the Fonner Park Racetrack at the Nebraska State Fair you’ll be kicking yourself about now because it witnessed a record-breaking parade of 964 classic tractors that will be recognized by The Guinness World Records.

To qualify, each tractor had to provide proof it was at least 30 years old. And while more than 1000 tractors participated in the parade organized and sponsored by RFD-TV and RURAL TV, the representative from Guinness certified that 964 of the tractors met all the requirements and drove continuously for a minimum of two miles.

Apparently the previous record was 745 tractors held in Elbach, Germany. A grandstand was filled to capacity with more than 10,000 spectators at the Fonner Park track, with at least 31 states represented in the parade, although 730 came from Nebraska itself.

The parade was broadcast live on RFD-TV and RURAL TV hosted by veteran farm broadcaster and tractor enthusiast Max Armstrong, along with KRVN’s Joe Greenwich.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
