Tifton truck and tractor pull comes to town

TIFTON, GA (WALB) - The Tifton Truck and Tractor pull got underway at the American Legion Fairgrounds Friday night. Spectators will be able to see trucks and tractors pull sleds on a 300 foot dirt track.

The event is only $15 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. Organizers say the event benefits everybody.

"Well the benefits all go to the community because there are so many people that come and enjoy the sport of truck and tractor pulling. It's tourism, it's economic development. Everyone benefits when we bring a tractor pull to town," said Tyron Spearman.

There will be another tractor pull Saturday night at 7:00 PM.
