Tractor pull coming to National Farm Machinery Show

Drivers will compete for $300,000 in prizes at the Championship Tractor Pull.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — More than 190 drivers will compete in the nation’s longest-running indoor tractor pull at the National Farm Machinery Show.

The Championship Tractor Pull, sponsored by Farm Credit Mid-America, will be held in Freedom Hall.

“The Championship Tractor Pull continues to be a core part of the Kentucky Venues portfolio of events,” said David Beck, president and CEO of Kentucky Venues.

“For more than 50 years, it has become a special tradition for many families and friends attending the National Farm Machinery Show.”

The tractor pull continues to grow in popularity and size.

Since its inception, the event has more than doubled the number of drivers pulling, increased the number of classes, added live streaming capabilities and boosted prize money.

Although the show is growing, its mission remains the same: to celebrate the agriculture community and its accomplishments.

“The Championship Tractor Pull has deep roots in rural America, and it’s an event many of our customers look forward to attending each year,” said Mark Barker, senior vice president of agricultural lending in Kentucky for Farm Credit Mid-America.

“We have been long-time participants in the National Farm Machinery Show, so this is another way we can engage our customers and celebrate our rural roots with thousands of other attendees from across the state of Kentucky and the country.”
