From the beginning, the sport has had a calling all its own. While cars dispute the issue of speed over stretches of a quarter-mile or hundreds of miles, nothing compares to the modern tractor pull's test of brute force. For pulling fans, this spectacle feeds an addiction like no other.
Tractor Pull! gives readers an inside look at the sport of tractor pulling from its earliest days to
today's monster pulling machines. Photography from the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA), Full Pull Magazine's Photo Joe Egli, the American Tractor Pullers Association (ATPA), and the Championship Tractor Pull at the National Farm Machinery Show includes pulling greats Danny Dean, the Banter brothers, Bruce Hutcherson, Art Arfons, Esdon Lehn, and Tim Engler—to name a few.
Whether you live your life 300 feet at a time or have yet to feel the adrenaline rush of a pull, you'll experience the power and excitement of the sport through the pages of Tractor Pull!
