Richfield sets new All-Terrain Vehicle World Record
Richfield – Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree organizers received official word from the Guinness Book of World Records that it now holds the record for "Largest Parade of ATVs". The new record was set at the 2009 Jamboree with 1,870 machines, easily surpassing the existing record set by the All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota with 1,632 ATVs.
“ATV use is growing all over the country, and with Utah's great trails and destinations, we are at the forefront of that growth as this new record shows,” commented Utah State Parks Deputy Director Fred Hayes. “Successful events like the Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree show that ATV use on Utah's public lands can be accomplished consistent with other multiple-use efforts.”
