Ram Truck Announces Partnership with Texas Rangers | All Star Dodge

Ram Truck announced that it would partner with the Texas Rangers law enforcement organization at the State Fair of Texas September 25. Accompanying the announcement was a $100,000 donation to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.

 “Texas Rangers are icons,” said Ram Truck Brand President and CEO Bob Hegbloom. “They are heroes. They are recognized around the world as one of the foremost law-enforcement agencies.” Hegbloom said he was proud that Ram is associated with the Texas Rangers and the museum.

The Hall of Fame and Museum is the official historical center for the Rangers and is preparing for the Texas Ranger bicentennial in 2023. Tracing their roots back to 1823, today’s elite Rangers work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, taking a lead role in criminal investigation of public corruption, border security, and unsolved and serial crime, among others.

The Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum was founded in 1964, and it celebrated its 50th anniversary on September 27. The museum has expanded to include a library, educational center, and the agency’s headquarters.


“Texas is truck country -- Ram Truck country -- and today’s announcement allows Ram in partnership with The Chrysler Foundation to assist the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in making a positive contribution to preserving Texas Ranger heritage and helping foster its future,” Hegbloom said.
