Tifton to host truck and tractor pull

TIFTON — The Spring Tifton Truck and Tractor Pull rolls into town on Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21 at the American Legion Fairgrounds. Sponsored by the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League and the Southern Pullers Association, truck and tractor pullers from all across the Southeast will compete for Southern Pullers Association Championship points and prize money.

“New this year is a special class of 8500 pound Light Pro Stock tractors. These tractors are more powerful and faster than the Super Farm Tractors. That class will be a crowd pleaser,” states Tyron Spearman, Coordinator of the Pull. “Look for the points standing and competition schedule on the Internet at www.tpuller.com.”

Competitive classes will also include the 5400 pound 2-Wheel Drive Pro-Street Trucks, the 5200 pound 2-wheel Drive Modifieds, the 6200 pound 2- wheel drive Super Modified with Blowers, the 6200 pound 4-wheel drive Modified Trucks plus the 8000 pound Super Farm Tractors. Spearman said due to safety issues, the Southern Pullers Association has discontinued the amateur class.

“Tifton and South Georgia really enjoys the family friendly entertainment that truck and tractor pulling offers,” states Angela Moore, Assistant Coordinator.

The Tifton Truck and Tractor Pull is coordinated by the Ag Equipment Technology Club at ABAC with proceeds going to their pulling tractors, Altered Allis and Cracker Jack, as well as Club activities. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 6-12 years of age, 5 years and under is Free.

Gates open at 5 pm and the pull starts at 7 pm on Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21. The pull track is one mile east of Downtown Tifton on Highway 82 at the American Legion Fairgrounds. Concessions are available.
