Corn farmers hosting fan appreciate night for Nebraska Truck & Tractor Pullers
The Nebraska Corn Growers Association is sponsoring a fan appreciation night for the Nebraska Truck & Tractor Pullers Association during a pull at the Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction on Sept. 4.
As part of the event, the Nebraska Corn Growers will had out prizes to fans as they arrive and award additional prizes to fans in attendance throughout the pull.
"The Nebraska Truck & Tractor Pullers is a great organization that we've supported all year. It's backed by tremendous fans and we're happy to be helping the Pullers show their appreciation at the Sept. 4 event," said Brandon Hunnicutt, president of the Nebraska Corn Growers. "We're expecting a lot of good action, and we hope a lot of fans come out and join in the fun."
The pit gate opens at 4 p.m., the front gate at 6:30 p.m., and pulling action begins at 7:30 p.m.
There will be five classes of pullers running, including Limited Pro Tractors, 2WD Pickups, Super Stock Tractors, 4WD Pickups and Pro Tractors. Two sleds will be in operation, and a kids tractor pull will be held at 7:30 p.m.
"Corn growers will be there handing out prizes and promoting corn, ethanol and all the important things agriculture means to Nebraska," Hunnicutt said. "Agriculture, from corn to livestock, is the backbone of the state, and that's something we're proud of and like to share."
