Antique Tractor Pull

This morning, my brothers entered their first ever antique tractor pull at our town’s Potato and Corn Festival.  They pulled in the 4500 lb class with their restored Ford 960.

Jon and Nate scope out the competition.

Jon made a full pull the first round.

There were quite a few wheelies.

In the end, this nice lady and her Oliver named “Tie Breaker” won first place.  Second was taken by the girl standing next to her and her John Deere “Green Envy.”  Jon was okay with being beaten by two girls, but you can bet he, Nate, my dad and Ed are already talking about modifications they need to make and gearing up for the Guilford Fair in September.
