If you're concerned, have friends in vehicles in front and back, with flashers on.
This is how my 50' heavy spruce spar is moved to storage, down a highway, 5 miles away.
I could probably arrange the pick-up with rack as you describe. I was concerned about the long overhangs maybe permanently bending the mast. Is that a valid concern?
