2012 Weekend Happenings
A variety of events are scheduled for the weekend ...
2012 Fan Appreciation Night
w/ "Nashville Crush"
Come join us for "Fan Appreciation Night", Thursday, August 16th, 2012 for "Dancin in the Dirt" featuring "Nashville Crush"! The gates open at 4:00 PM and the concert starts at 8:00 PM and goes till Midnight. This will be a free concert, general admission. Come early and check out our open pits. Get up close and personal with some of North America's best and most powerful pulling machines before they roar down the pulling tracks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Then dance on those very pulling tracks with the competitors, "Blue Shirts" and fellow fans.
Kiddie Pedal Pull
The state qualifier for the National Kiddie Tractor Pedal Pull is back! The competition is open to children, 3 - 10 years old and takes place Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. Come cheer on our future competitors!
If you enjoy watching the "Big Boys" pull, you will definitely want to check out the Scale Tractor Pullers Assoc. They will "compete" with their remote-controlled scale pulling vehicles on their very own dirt track with a scale-size sled/weight transfer machine on Friday at 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM and again on Saturday, at 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Watch the excitement, but on a smaller scale!
Check out the Toy Show while you are at the National Tractor Pulling Championships. Toy Dealers from all over the United States display old and new toys, so plan on stopping in. You just might find that special toy you have been looking for to add to your collection! The Toy Show is open on Friday from 10:00 AM till 6:00 PM, Saturday, 8:00 AM till 6:00 PM and Sunday, 10:00 AM till 3:00 PM. Hope to see you there!
Retired Tractor Museum
The Retired Tractor Museum is a favorite of the young and old alike. Pulling Vehicles from days gone by are on display. And the old time pullers spin their yarns about tractor pulling in the earlier days during the "Rusty Tailgate Party" on Saturday at 10:00 AM. Come check out how Tractor Pulling has changed and grown!
