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.
