TIFT CO., GA (WALB) -

The Spring edition of the Tifton Truck and Tractor Pull is in town today and tomorrow at the American Legion Fairgrounds.

 Truck and tractor pullers from all across the Southeast will compete for Southern Pullers Association Championship points and prize money.

"The new 8500 pound Light Pro Stock tractors class is a great one to watch. These tractors are more powerful and faster than the Super Farm Tractors," said Tyron Spearman, Coordinator of the Pull. "Look for the points standing and competition schedule online at www.tpuller.com ."

Competitive classes will also include the 5,400 pound 2-Wheel Drive Pro-Street Trucks, the 5,200 pound 2-wheel Drive Modifieds, the 6,200 pound 2- wheel drive Super Modified with Blowers, the 6,200 pound 4-wheel drive Modified Trucks plus the 8,000 pound Super Farm Tractors. There is no longer an amateur class.

The Tifton Truck and Tractor Pull is coordinated by the Ag Equipment Technology Club at ABAC with proceeds going to their pulling tractors, Altered Allis and Cracker Jack, as well as Club activities.

Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for students with an ID and $5 for children under the age of 10.

Gates open at 5 pm and the pull starts at 7 pm on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27. The pull track is one mile east of Downtown Tifton on Highway 82 at the American Legion Fairgrounds. Concessions are available.

The event is sponsored by the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League and the Southern Pullers Association.
