General Rules: We must have 5-pullers per class to run the class. Trophies are awarded to the top three places in each class. There will be a $15.00 SLED FEE per tractor, per class, payable on registration. No tractor may pull in more than ONE class. We reserve the right to alter or add to these weight classes if the need arises. All tractors are required to weigh, before they pull as well as coming off the track.
IF YOU PULL IN ANTIQUE, CLASSIC ANTIQUE, OR MODERN CLASSIC THEN YOU CAN NOT PULL IN FARM STOCK.                                                                                                All tractors must pull in the class nearest their actual factory weight. You may exceed a weight class by no more than 250-POUNDS. This weight includes permanently attached bolted (with no more than 2-per wheel) wheel weights and front frame weights. Weights that were specifically designed for that make and model tractor. No after-market weight brackets.

Engines: Stock engines only. We realize that with the age of these tractors many of these engines will be over-bored. We rely on the integrity of the participants. If you have major modification (turbo, ect.) we do not want you. Fuel metering devices may be set anywhere. You may not exceed factory rated RPM’s and OR horsepower by more than 20%. We reserve the right to check any questionable engine on a dynamometer.

Hitches: All tractors must have original factory hitch, drawbar mounted in original position. No hitch may exceed 18” from the ground level to top of drawbar. Hitch heights will be checked on scales during weigh-in. In the absence of a pulling loop, use a clevis and a ¾” bolt tightened. This too will be checked on the scales. Be sure you hitch is approved.

Drivers: All drivers must be at least sixteen (16) years old. Young drivers may be required to provide proof of age. All operators will be required to sign a release relieving the sponsor from all personal and property liability.

Safety: The head flagman will determine when a condition is unsafe (front end float, bounce, speed, weight or parts falling off tractor, fire, etc.) and: will “RED FLAG” the puller immediately. Front-end float is not to exceed knee height or at the decision of the flagman. The tractor must be kept within the boundaries of the track at all times. The FLAGMAN’S DECISION IS FINAL. Only track officials are permitted on the track after a tractor starts to pull.

Pulling: A puller may stop within the 75-foot mark for any reason. Any tractor pulling less than 75-feet will be returned to the start line and re-started. The re-start is final.

Traction Devices: All types rubber tires (solid, pneumatic, and radial) as well as steel wheels are permitted. NO cut tires permitted. No tracked vehicles or four wheel drive are permitted to pull in completion.
