2019 Truck Pull

This year, we will only have drag racing starting early on Saturday the 27th..   We'll be ready to race at 10am!  You are free to make as many passes as you'd like down the strip and can line up against anyone you want.  To drag race you need to purchase a "tech card" at the gate for $30.  You'll receive the card, then will need to have your vehicle inspected in the tech area near the tower.  Then you'll receive a number and be ready to race!

We'll stop and prep the track at 1pm and let trucks with slicks make runs on a prepped track.

Starting at 3pm there will be a bracket race

There will be an intermission at 4pm for the burnout contest and show n shine.

After the bracket racing we will have a new feature for Saturday.  RACING UNDER THE LIGHTS!  Starting at dark, we will have the track open for both gas and diesel vehicles for 1.5 to 2 hours to allow some more racing time.

2019 Show 'n Shine

Changes are in the works for 2019, stay tuned for updates!


For 2019 we will continue to build off the excellent pull showing that we had for the past three years.  


In 2017 we wanted to show our commitment to the sled pull event and made some MAJOR pulling track improvements!  We hauled in 11 side dump loads of clay for our pulling track.  Thats over 250 cubic yards of clay!  As a result, the new track is great!  All of the pullers were amazed at the improvements in the track!  Even our sled operator said it was the fastest he's gone behind a 2.6 truck!!!


This year's sled pull will be Saturday evening.  Starting at 5pm.


NADM will be on site to officiate all pulling activities.  We will use the NADM rules, and NADM officials will be on site to do tech inspections prior to pulling.







Cost to enter the sled pull is $35.


Stay tuned for date and time announcements for the 2019 Sled pull.  Changes are in the works!!


  • The following will be the classes for the pull:

    • Work stock

    • 2.5

    • 2.6

    • 3.0 - Anyone that doesn't meet 2.6 rules may pull in 3.0 class if they meet 3.0 rules.

    • Exhibition

      • The Exhibition class is designed for folks who want to pull for the first time, or just for fun. Or if your truck doesn't fit in a particular class, you can still pull in exhibition.  All tractors will pull in exhibition also. You must still go through tech inspection.  The amount of safety equipment required will be dependent on the power level of your truck.  We encourage you to contact NADM if you have a high horsepower truck and would like clarification as it pertains to your truck.  Most near stock trucks will not need additional safety equipment.  However, if you don't meet the minimum rules, you won't be allowed to pull.  See the NADM workstock rules for general guidelines.

      • We welcome ANY TYPE of pullers to enter as exhibition.  Gas or Diesel, trucks, tractors, 2wd, 4x4, anything and everything can make as many exhibition pulls as they would like!


There will be payouts for 3 classs.  Guaranteed payouts are:


  • Workstock:  $100 for first place

  • 2.5:  $500 for first place

  • 2.6:  $1000 for first place


More places will be paid out based on the number of entries.

We're happy to announce that Revolution Auto Works will be on site all day Saturday with their load cell dyno.  This dyno also has AWD capabilities.
