Worthington, Ohio---Allegan, Michigan: Get ready to hear the power and feel the noise!
In conjunction with the Allegan County Fair, the National Tractor Pullers Association will present the Allegan County Fair Pull on Thursday, September 13 at the Allegan County Fairgrounds. The three-class session will begin at 7 p.m.
In truck and tractor pulling, vehicles drag a 20-ton weight transfer sled along a straight, dirt track as the sled's resistance increases. Within a class of similar vehicles, the puller that achieves the greatest distance is victorious. The NTPA is the world's number-one sanctioning organization for premier-level events that feature highly specialized machines resembling farm tractors, trucks, and dragsters and dedicated competitors that battle for purse money and end-of-season championships. No other motorsport offers the diversity of vehicle types, variety of engine combinations, intensity of brand rivalries, and accessibility of competitors. If you're looking for fierce, fair competition in a family-friendly, patriotic atmosphere, give truck and tractor pulling a try in Allegan.
Divisions competing at the Allegan County Fair Pull include Regional National Super Farm Tractors, StainlessDiesel.com Pro Stock Diesel 4x4 3.0 Trucks, and Modified Minis. All of the classes will compete for points toward championships in NTPA's Region II (Pro Stock Diesel 4x4s: II West) and berths in the 2019 all-star invitational Enderle Pull-Off in Urbana, Ohio.
Winners at Allegan in 2017 were Stan Warda of Berrien Springs, Michigan ("Hammerin' Hank" SF), Ryan Walters of Wharton, Ohio ("Chasin' Tail" PS), and David Lacey of Thedford, Ontario ("Triple Play: Double or Nothing" MINI). Expected to compete in Allegan in defense of his 2017 championship is Lacey ("Triple Play Unchained" MINI).
