Corban Crook Benefit Tractor Pull

I went to the benefit pull Saturday before I went to the reunion. I figured I would only have time for 1 pull before I would have to leave. I was the first puller in the 7900 pound class. I pulled about 150 ft and stood it up and spun out. They called me back to change the gear in the sled. I backed up and moved 140 pounds to the front end and re pulled. I went 183 ft and some inches. I thought to my self as I backed up and they unhooked me" This pull ain't going to get me to first place maybe third." DRH pulled next and he went 180 ft and some inches. I thought to my self " This is interesting I'm not normally ahead of him" . DY pulled third and he is normally my competition for this class and he made it 167 ft. I was a happy camper I got first place in front of a record crowd. There were probably 500 to 600 people there. It was the biggest crowd I have ever seen in Pageland. People really turned out to make the benefit a success!!! ................................Eric Benton, Southeast Tractor Parts

Hail, Lots of Hail

Last Saturday night I went to my High School Class Reunion. About 2 hours into the get together it started raining and storming. Lots of rain, lots of lightening, lots of thunder and then lots of Hail, Big Hail, the size of golf balls and it covered the ground 3 to 4 inches deep. I did not think alot about it damaging the pickup. I bet every vehicle in the parking lot was damaged. It looked like someone had been out there with a small ball peen hammer beating up the hood and the top and the sides of the truck. So now I have a one of a kind dimpled truck. Hope it makes it worth more!!! Eric Benton, Southeast Tractor Parts, Anyone want a special one of a kind truck!!!
