Riders say they've set ATV world record in Minnesota

SILVER BAY, Minn. - All-terrain vehicle riders are claiming a world record for their turnout today in Silver Bay, on Minnesota's North Shore.

The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota tried to line up more than 2,000 ATVs into the longest parade documented for Guinness World Records.

KQDS-TV in Duluth said organizers report they fell short of that total, but their count was 1,632 ATVs, and they now have 30 days to mail documentation for verification with Guinness.

It was the second attempt for the group.

Last year's parade fell 55 four-wheelers short of the current parade record of 1,138 ATVs, set by the Harlan County Ridge Runners of Evarts, Ky., in 2006. Three-wheelers and side-by-side ATVs don't county toward the record.
