TIFTON – Trucks and tractors of all shapes and sizes will rev their engines and roar down the track on October 4-6 at the AET Truck and Tractor Pull sponsored by the Agricultural Engineering Technology Club at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. The event is open to all students, faculty, staff, and the public.
During the event, trucks and tractors pull a weighted sled down a dirt track. The weight moves toward the front of the sled as the vehicle pulls it down the track, making it more difficult to pull. Trucks and tractors are divided into weight classes. ABAC has had two pulling tractors, Altered Allis and Cracker Jack.
On Oct. 4, ABAC students and the community can participate in the amateur night that begins at 7 p.m. The admission fee will be $5 per person. Children five and under get in free. Participants can enter their vehicles in the event for a cost of $5 per pull. Gates will open at 6 p.m.
On Oct. 5-6, the Southern Pullers Association will provide the show featuring professional pullers. Admission will be $15 for adults; $10 for children six-10 years of age; $10 for students with an ABAC I.D.; and free for children five and under.
On Oct. 5, gates will open at 6 p.m., and pulling will start at 7 p.m. On Oct. 6, the gates will open at 5 p.m., and pulling will start at 6 p.m.
