National Tractor Pulling Championships

Pics from the National Tractor Pulling Championships in the Wood County Fairgrounds

    Before the pullin' at the Wood County Fairgrounds
  •  
    These are NOT the tractors that pull. Well, they do pull, just not the things that the other tractors pull.
  •  
    Someone wins this trophy. It's awfully good looking.
  •  
    Tourin' the open pits, you get to see some awesome hardware.
  •  
    Vroom vroom.
  •  
    Really, what's to stop someone from jamming a corn dog in these things?
  •  
    For fans of both tractor pullin' and musicals.
  •  
    Wait, is it a destroyer of deers? Or is it a deer that destroys? CALL OUR 900 NUMBER AND VOTE.
  •  
    I could plow the hell out of some soybeans with this kind of machinery.
  •  
    Honesty is the best policy.

  •  
    Time to see what these bad boys can do.
  •  
    Don't think you were gonna leave the track clean, because these boys threw dirt everywhere.
  •  
    Full crowd, and that's just the midday session, the night crowd gets nuttier.
  •  
    4x4 trucks haulin', and they were doin' work too.
  •  
    Lemme see your grocery hauler do this.
  •  
    The closest to "stock" you'll see at the track, you've got to leave the body of these tractors as-is.
  •  
    They actually inject water into the fuel to get extra horses from the steam.
  •  
    Meanwhile, the kids get their own shot at a tractor pull.
  •  
    5 different age groups compete for hardware on the kids track.
  •  
    Where nerd meets 'neck, it's RC tractor pulling!
  •  
    They look small, but to scale, they're just as powerful as the big machines.
  •  
    And man, do they book it down the track.
  •  
    Meanwhile, out at the campground, the fans bring their own... modes of transportation.
  •  
    It's like one of those party boats, except not.
  •  
    I'll be honest, I'm kinda jealous.
  •  
    And they have a great big convoy, ridin' through the ni...middle of the day.
