Alright guys. For those of you who are interested in sled pulling, here it is.
Truck and Antique tractor pull- June 22nd in Johnson City at the Blanco County Fairgrounds.
This will be tractors 1965 and older (Nebraska Test Book) and for the trucks we are having both a gas and diesel truck class. There will also be food and a kid's sled pull. I don't have the rest of the info on other activities in front of me, but last year they had washer pitching as well, so they'll probably do that again.
-Registration for tractors will begin at 9AM
-Registration for trucks will begin at 12PM.
There will be a, I believe, $5 admission fee and kid's 12 and under are free. $30 hook fee for the sled pulling.
Gas truck pulling class- open class, fuel only (no injectables), 26" hitch height max, 2 wheel drive AND 4 wheel drive trucks will be in the same class. $250 1st place prize money
Diesel truck pulling class- Again.. Open class, fuel only (no injectables), 26" hitch height max, 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive trucks in the same class. $250 1st place prize money.
Neither the diesel or gas truck classes will have a weight limit, suspension rules, or turbo rules. We will be inspecting trucks for hitch height and injectables such as nitrous, water/methanol, and propane..
So come on out. It's always a really fun and family friendly event. Let me know if you have any questions.
Sounds like fun! Any websites or places for more info?
I had them email me the flyer for the event. I cannot get to my emails from the computer I'm on right now, so I will post it a little later today. The flyer will simply have phone numbers to call for more info. If you have any questions specifically on the truck pull portion of the event, contact me.
The organization that puts this event on is the Johnson City Antique Tractor and Engine Club. They are a relatively small group, so they don't have a website or anything for the event.
Sounds like a good event for me and the boy. I'll probably make it...as a spectator, though!
If you make it, hunt me down. When it gets close to noon for the truck pull I should be down by the track "teching" trucks (really just checking hitch height and checking for injectables) as they line up for the pull.
EDIT: here is the flyer that was sent to me.. Kinda leaves a lot to be desired, but it's what they gave me. LOL I also just corrected my original post to say tractor registration is at 9am
