Full Throttle Fun!
It’s full throttle forward with wheelies and front tires leaping as some of the state’s most qualified tractor drivers compete to pull the heaviest and farthest on a 300-foot track! Considered the world’s most powerful motorsport, tractor pulling is a competition pitting modified pulling tractors in four different weight classes, each pulling weight transfer machines up to 60,000 pounds (30 tons). For the beginner puller, there’s the mini modified tractor class, pulling a mere 20,000 pounds (10 tons). In elephant weight: the big tractors can pull about six elephants and the minis can pull two. Locals are invited to bring their own 4x4 stock trucks or tractors for the Local Competition.
