    For there size, i like watching the 2 wheel drive pickups pull.When the front comes up and they transfer all the weight to the rear they can sure pull on two wheels.They do get a little squirrelly tho!!!

    Have fun on your trip to show.Looks like big time guys there for sure!!!!!!!
     
  3. I'll be there on Wednesday night, I like the "Gotta Go Deere" although he won't be pulling at Freedom Hall, something about a conflict of interest, his company is the one that builds the track there.

    I like to watch the DHRA Nationals when they come to Indy. If they don't have a closer event to you, you should check it out. They have pulls and drags. A LOT of nice rigs from all over show up for it.:weightlifter:

    Louisville is a invitational pull and yes it's all the big boys from all over. It's one of my favorite pulls of the year but it's still no (Pull Town) Bowling Green, Ohio. For those of you that have not been to Bowling Green it is the Nascar of tractor pulling. They have two tracks side by side and I go every year. Tomah Wisconsin is a very big pull also.

    Yeah I have seen Cujo pull many times. Those old D-21 Allis tractors use to dominate a long time ago. It's amazing the power that these tractors put out. I have learned allot about the motors over the years from friends that pull. It's amazing what the computers on these things will tell ya.

    Haney's are pioneers in the sport. Owning the Allis dealership helps alot. They have a big pull in Tanner Alabama not far from my house every year. They have one of the big pulls they put on TV in Lexington Alabam also not far from here. Lawn mower pulls are big here now. Here is what is in our shop today. When he finished building shled he put a cab on it.
