Tractor Pulls

Over the weekend, we went to see tractor pulls and monster truck pulls. It was really fun. I had never been to this before.

Here is some of what we saw...

It was a lot of fun! Have you ever been to tractor pulls or monster truck pulls?

P.S. Can you believe that they said that ONE of those large tires costs $3,000. Ouch!

  1. I used to go there fairly often as a teen. Loved it. :)
    And, after buying a $3,000 tire they proceed to cut some of the rubber off the tread to give it better traction. Nothing like throwing money away.
    Glad you had a good time! :) :)

  4. HI Mandie. Thanks for stopping by. I know - it was different but fun. The big red thing in the back that they are hooked up too has a heavy weight that as they drive it gets closer to them and makes it harder to pull.
    This was for my cousin's 13th birthday. He is a BIG John Deere tractor guy.

  7. Well, tractor pulls are a competition. Different people (often farmers) bring their (hyped up) tractors and they compete to see who can pull that big red machine the fartherest. That machine though has this weight bar on it that moves closer to the tractor as they go and digs more and more into the ground making it harder for the tractor driver. People cheer and yell. Then the winner gets a trophy.
    That night they did tractor pulls then monster truck pulls then mutiple engine tractors.
    It was something different to do and we all had fun. We were in a family group with some of my cousin's (and our) friends too.
