Blue Tractor

BOWLING GREEN—It may have been delayed by two weeks, but that didn’t seem to dowse the enthusiasm for the truck and tractor pull at the Pike County Fairgrounds.

Without the fair going on, the competitors were allowed to fill the fairgrounds with their trucks and trailers. At one point, it was almost as though there were more competitors than spectators. But then, the stands continued to fill, and as the sun dropped below the tree line at the west end of the track, the grounds crew finished smoothing and leveling the two tracks.

That’s when the two sleds were moved into place and the competitors lined up to pull onto the track and test their powerful machines against the weight of the sleds.

A shout from the stands altered track officials that there was no U.S. flag on the pole next to the announcer’s stand. One of the sleds, carrying a flag was quickly brought forward for the National Anthem.

Then it was time to bring the thunder. Up first were the Street Stock Gas tractors.
