In an effort to provide the best event possible, we have all different phases and parts of our event set with back-up equipment and plans.
In fact, the pullers have to leave each year on Saturday night or early Sunday morning to arrive at the next event scheduled on the pulling circuit.
As agriculture expanded with the advent of the gasoline and diesel engine being the norm, the challenge was often laid down between neighboring farmers: who had the strongest tractor in the township, in the county, in the state and in America. Because of the circuit schedule, there are no rain dates or make-up dates available.
The concept has remained the same but the technology has surpassed all expectations. It is a collaborative effort of friends and family to make things happen. We thank you for your understanding of our situation and please know that we also were very disappointed that we were unable to provide to you some of the best truck and tractor pulling on Saturday night.
Pulling has crossed the Atlantic and is now a major sport in more than ten countries throughout Europe and Australia. The tractor divisions replicate the farm style tractor with various alterations and performance upgrades. The National Tractor Pullers Association is the sports oldest and most respected entity when it comes to premier truck and tractor pulling competition.
However, National Tractor Pullers Association leads the way in brute force with jaw-dropping displays of supreme horsepower. These machines vary from 1, to 5, horsepower depending on the class, a far cry from what they started with on the farm.
The competitor pulling the furthest distance without going out of bounds is declared the victor.
It is truly inspiring when one evaluates the level of dedication and passion these men and woman have for their chosen sport.
