A NOTE FROM THE NATIONAL TRACTOR PULLING CHAMPIONSHIP REGARDING OUR CURRENT SITUATION
In the wake of the wearisome coronavirus threat that continues to hang over us, the Board of Directors of the National Tractor Pulling Championships has decided to cancel the 54th consecutive Super National Event in Bowling Green, Ohio.
To say that this decision was difficult is an understatement. However, after many meetings with State and Local officials and experts, we felt the underlying threat to our youth groups and senior volunteers, our community, and of course the love we have for our pullers, fans and sponsors, was a risk too great to take.
From all of us, to all of you, we are sorry. We looked at every avenue and every option available to us and we found no way to safely bring you all together.
So, button down the hatches, and be ready for one heck of a show in 2021. All tickets and campsites already purchased will be rolled over to next year. Anybody wishing to purchase or add tickets for 2021 can order beginning Monday, January 4, 2021.
Until next year, please stay safe and healthy. We miss you and look forward to seeing you all August 19-21, 2021.

The NTPC is promoted by the Northwestern Ohio Tractor Pullers Association (NWOTPA), the veritable backbone of the championships. The NWOTPA was chartered as the Wood County Tractor Pullers in the spring of 1962. There were approximately 20 members, all residents of Wood County, Ohio. In August of 1962 the first speed pull was introduced at the Wood County Fairgrounds. A special long flat bottom sled was built that was designed for men to step on as it went by. Men were lined up on both sides of the track and stepped on the sled as it went by. The tractor that pulled the farthest was declared the winner. Many problems occurred with this type of pulling, specifically men leaving the track during the event and the tractors going too fast for men to step on.
