Truck and Tractor Pull-August 31st-Ohio

Just wonderin' if anyones goin to the pulls in Wauseon, Ohio. I'm considering heading down to it. Lemme kno if you're headin to it. Its on Friday Aug. 31...starts at 6:30 pm...well...heres the rest of the info:
--M. E. Miller Tri-State Showdown in Wauseon, Ohio--

WORTHINGTON, Ohio -- The National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA) travels to Wauseon, Ohio for the 150th annual Fulton County Fair on Friday, August 31 at 6:30 p.m. This classic event features five NTPA Region II divisions and two NTPA Grand National divisions. The “M. E. Miller Tri-State Showdown” has been awarded the “NTPA Regional National Pull of the Year” for ten consecutive years (1997 through 2006). A favorite of fans and competitors, this show promises to please as pullers battle it out for precious Regional and Grand National points in their quest for an NTPA division championship.

Friday night’s classes include: NTPA Grand National Mini Modified tractors and Four Wheel Drive trucks, and NTPA Regional National Super Farm tractors, Pro Stock tractors, Heavy Super Stock tractors, Two Wheel Drive trucks and Modified tractors.

The Mini Modified Tractors are known as the “Wildest Ride on Four Wheels” and rightly so. With a horsepower ratio of one horsepower per pound and a wheelbase of less than 100 inches, these machines are one tough ride to wrangle. Minis have the distinction of being the lightest class in all of the 12 NTPA Championship pulling divisions, weighing in at 2000 lbs. Combine these factors and it is amazing the competitors can guide these mini monsters down the track in a straight line. Adam Koester, of Wadesville, Ind., sits atop the Mini class with his vehicle, “Double Play.”

The Four Wheel Drive Truck division showcases Chevy, Ford, and Dodge trucks utilizing monster fuel injected engines. Close competition is noted in this division, as many times all competitors are within just a few feet of each other when the dust settles. The FWD points leaders are the Holman Brothers of Wauseon, Ohio, driving “4-Play.”

Super Farm Tractors are similar to Pro Stock Tractors, but with a few variations. Engine size is limited to 640 cubic inches, competitors must use the OEM manifold and heads for that brand engine, and they can only use one, three-inch turbo. Diesel fuel is still the only permitted fuel and tire sizes are also the same as on Pro Stock tractors. The Super Farm class is extremely competitive and any competitor has a shot at winning. A healthy lead is enjoyed by Jerry Wisel and “Constant Conflict” of Roanoke, Ind.

Pro Stock Tractors are limited to one turbocharger and diesel fuel is the only allowable source for powering these machines. John Deere and IH are the dominant brands, but oftentimes another brand or two is found mixing up the “green“ and “red“ parade. The agricultural-based fans will see a slight similarity in the appearance of these tractors in relationship to what they see at home in the field, but the power and paintjobs on these machines are just two of the differences that will jump out. The Lawyers of Hagerstown, Ind., hold on to a slim points lead with their tractor, “Rapped Up.”

Heavy Super Stock Diesel tractors are the pinnacle of the tractor classes. With up to four turbos, 640 cid and awesome wheel speeds, this class is always a fan favorite. Their roots are in farm equipment and even have a stock exterior appearance. Underneath the sheet metal is a different story. These beasts can crank out 2,500-3,000 horsepower when screaming down the track. Diesel or alcohol fuel power these machines. The leader in the Heavy Super Stock division is Jerry VanDorpe, driving “Screamin Demon II.”

The Two Wheel Drive class uses truck bodies as well as T-bucket and funny car bodies possessing single, supercharged racing engines. These vehicles are known for their high wheel standing passes. Their big block V-8 power will pierce the air as they make their way down the clay track in search for full pull. “Kathy’s Komplaint,” driven by Randy Petro of Camden, Ohio, is currently in the lead in the Two Wheel Drive class.

Competitors in the Modified division utilize various powerplant arrangements, such as multiple supercharged engines, twin V-12 Allison aircraft engines, and even jet turbines, developing approximately 5,000 horsepower at 100 mph wheel speeds. Don Deane, of Trafalgar, Mich., has been nearly unstoppable this season with his tractor, “Plumber’s Nightmare.”
