I had a chance to go over to Newberrytown Peddlers Market for their garden tractor pulls this past Saturday. They have 6 events throughout the year. I wanted to go last year but never had a free weekend when they were pulling. A big plus is it is only about 8 mile from our house. They have a terrific setup over there and the track is laid out nice. It is competition pulling so wheelie bars and kill switches are required.

I had a lot of fun watching them and I got to talk to a few people about them as well. I have been planning on doing a puller at some point in time but my little girl bumped it up to priority when we were at the Little Guys Show and she said "Daddy, I wanna do that" with those big ole blue eyes. How can one resist right?

I can't believe how much power they are getting out of the pro stock single cylinders. I also never knew how good a Kohler Command sounded with a cam and headers. Reminded me of my old hot rod pickup they way they loped. Which is what I am planning on building for me that way daddy and daughter get to pull together at the pulls.

Anyway I got about 280 images posted in the gallery at: Newberrytown Peddlers Market Garden Tractor Pulls Gallery

I also got a good bit of video that I am going to try and get to this week and will have posted along with a short article on it. :D

The turf tires worked really well there, actually better then the ag tires due to it being sticky clay.

That is a heck of a video there George. I have to say the kid pulling 12:11-12:40 in the video made me concerned for your safety, but he sure seemed like he did quite well. I assume you were set up in the same spot the whole time (that was my judge of distance LOL).

Thanks guys, I actually still have a second part of that video to do yet with the higher horsepower pullers. I just haven't had enough time lately to get it done.

Nice video.I can see one major difference between my club and the club pulling.We are required to weat=r a helmet regardless of what class we pull in and if alky is your choice of fuel,a full firesuit is mandatory also.
