Trophies are awarded to the top three places in each class. We must have 5-pullers per class to run the class. There will be a $15.00 SLED FEE per tractor, per class, payable on registration. No tractor may pull in more than ONE WEIGHT 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. A tractor’s initial pull must be in a stock weight configuration. This is calculated as the tractor’s FOB- weight and may include liquid ballast, factory wheel weights, frame weights and suitcase or wafer weights, mounted in the front on factory brackets.
You may exceed a weight class by no more than 250-POUNDS. If the overall weight of the tractor does not include any removable weights.

Engines: Stock engines only. Turbos are permitted, factor installed ONLY. No superchargers. The injection pump must be stock. Fuel metering devices may be set anywhere. 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. ALL hitch / drawbar may not exceed 20” from the ground level to top of the hitch point 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: Only pneumatic, conventional or radial tires are permitted.  NO cut tires permitted.  Four wheel drives are not permitted to pull in competition.
