The 20 Best Traditions of the Kentucky Derby

It's hard to name anything in American culture that's more steeped in tradition than the Kentucky Derby. But let's face it, you try to do something 137 times without repeating a thing or two...or 20.

Sure we all know about the hats and the mint juleps, but there's plenty of fun Derby stuff I bet you had no idea about. I know that because I had no idea about a lot of these until I got to experience them for myself.

Eleven years I lived in Lexington and I'd never been to Churchill Downs, but thanks to the good folks over at Ram trucks, I finally got to experience all of that tradition firsthand. And you know what? It's kind of awesome.

See for yourself.
