RAM Ride and Drive Arena
Fans attending THE ACM EXPERIENCE will have the opportunity to “ride country” on a free, 25,000-square-foot interactive Ram Ride and Drive test track. The one-of-a-kind Ram outdoor course pairs riders with professional drivers so fans can experience firsthand the performance, capabilities and competitive advantages of Ram 1500 pickup trucks, the 2013 Motor Trend Truck of the Year. The Ram Ride and Drive is comprised of several obstacles, including a thrilling 13-foot climb where passengers experience the traction capabilities of a Ram pickup truck when driving over a 30-degree angle Ram Mountain. Fans attending the Ram experience will also see one of the most feared opponents on the monster truck racing circuit, the RAMINATOR. Weighing in at an incredible 10,300 pounds, the Ram-sponsored race truck is powered by a 2,000 horsepower HEMI engine and stands 10 feet tall and 13 feet wide. At select times during the Ram experience, the RAMINATOR will fire up and perform, smashing rows of junk cars. Country fans will be able to take a ride in the RAMINATOR ride truck and have autographs signed and photos taken with championship driver Mark Hall in the Ram Ride and Drive arena. Easton Corbin and Thompson Square will be signing autographs in the Ram Ride and Drive arena during the weekend as well.

“The Ram Truck track will be engaging and memorable for riders as they experience the refined interior, capabilities and handling of the award-winning 2013 Ram 1500,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Ram Truck fans and country music fans are one and the same, as they are cut from the same cloth. Last year’s inaugural ACM EXPERIENCE event at the Academy of Country Music Awards was a big hit and we are excited to be back again to give our mutual fans the opportunity to ride and drive the most innovative lineup of full-size pickup trucks on the market.”
