Championship Tractor Pull at Farm Machinery Show

With more than 75,000 fans packing Freedom Hall to experience five pulse-pounding performances in four days, the Championship Tractor Pull at the National Farm Machinery Show, the nation’s oldest indoor tractor pull, remains a counterpart to the much larger farm show, but has transformed into a premiere event of its own.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — High-octane intensity explodes into Freedom Hall during the evenings of the National Farm Machinery Show as pulling trucks and tractors battle it out at the Championship Tractor Pull.

This invitation-only event stars the nation’s best drivers and their machines — Pro Stocks, Super Stocks, Modified and Alcohol Tractors, as well as Two-Wheel and Four-Wheel Drive Trucks. The drivers compete in five exciting performances.

The National Farm Machinery Show is scheduled Feb. 12-15 at the Kentucky Exposition Center, 937 Phillips Lane, Louisville.

Drivers gear up for the unequaled thrill of winning at this nationally-recognized pull, but also for the chance to bring home a share of more than $200,000 in prize money.

The Championship Tractor Pull will be available through livestream pay-per-view and on-demand. Filming is from multiple angles with replays and score overlays. DVDs will also be available.

Pay-per-view prices are the same as tickets, $40 to $45, or $150 for all pulls. DVDs range from $25 to $30, or $100 for all pulls.
