         (Second Saturday of October)

         (Successfully completed 183 hooks at the Central Wisconsin Antique Tractor Pullers annual end of year Championship. It took a week for the track to dry out and they still had to scrap the mud off with an all wheel drive Cat grader pulled by an eight wheel drive articulating John Deere tractor plus a Cat loader to move the windrows of mud. Started the pull with the heaviest and ended with the lightest. Then the Memorial Classes and the two Money classes with $600 added money for the top eight finishers in each class.)

 

The Pulling Season is over -- October 20, 2012.  Successfully completed 5187 paid hooks on our eliminator during competition in 2012.   This exceeds last year's record number of hooks.  Successfully completed 46 pulls of the 47 pulls scheduled.  One pull (Seymour - Outagamie County Fair) was cancelled due to a downpour that flooded the infield of the track and one pull (Greenleaf End of Year Championship) pull was delayed a week due to rain and mud.   Since 2005, our eliminator has had a total of 34,629 competition hooks.  For a detailed record and comparison to previous years, click on History of Pulls.
