Tifton Tractor Pull holds finals

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -The Tifton Truck and Tractor Pull hosted finals Saturday night at the fair grounds.

Despite a little rain, tractors prepared the course before pullers pulled for points and cash money. Points are important for the annual banquet in January.

Competitors from around the south have been pulling all season. First place receives 100 points, and second gets 90.

Tifton's Tourism Director, Tyron Spearman, says any event that pulls in thousands of people is great for the economy.

"If we have 3,000 people here, just think of the impact it will have on our economy, said Spearman. "We advertise in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. We'll have a crowd out here tonight that will be yelling and carrying on."

Some proceeds will go towards ABAC's Ag Equipment and Technology club to help build a new pulling tractor.
