I went tractor pulling at Oakboro NC this past Saturday. I wanted to try out my new tires and rims to see how they would pull on different dirt against good competition. I got first place finish in 8000 lb super and second place finishes in 6000 lb and 7000 lb super. In the 6000 lb class I was 2 feet behind first place and in the 7000 lb class I finished at 324.51 feet, the winner finished at 324.58 feet. That is good pulling whether first or second place!!! In the 8000 and 7000 class I let the tractor lug down to about 1100 to 1200 rpm before I pulled the TA. Each time the engine came back and I pulled an additional 60 feet. Normally, the tractor would have spun out and I would have stopped right there. I think the combination of a real good track and the wider rims and tires kept me hooked to the track so the TA worked perfectly!
IT was hot!!!! but all in all it was a good day.
