“Start your engines Get ready for excitement, fire and smoke fun for all.”
That’s the welcome from Deb Dillner as she announced the Jackson County Tractor and Truck Pull scheduled Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Northeast Kansas Heritage Complex south of Holton.
“The Jackson County Fair Association is hosting the tractor and truck pull for the second year as a fundraiser toward continued construction of the Northeast Kansas Heritage Complex facilities,” according to Dillner, fair association official.
Gates will open at 3 o’clock, and competition gets underway at 6 o’clock.
Sanctioned by NK Pullers, the Holton pull will feature the X-Factor Sled and is to include 13 classes of competition.
There be events for various sizes of two and four wheel drive modified pickups, as well several sizes of professional, hot farm, modified and turbo tractors. Participant registration is open from 3 o’clock to 5:30.
While the Northeast Kansas Heritage Complex is located 1½ miles south of Holton, on Highway 75, and then and one-quarter mile west on 214 Road, all attendees, both spectators and participants, will need to use the south entrance on 214 Road, Dillner pointed out.
Concessions will be available on the grounds. Coolers are welcome for a $5 fee at the gate, but no glass is requested, Dillner emphasized.
“Class sponsorships are still available, so if you or your business would like to sponsor a class for this fundraiser, please contact me at 785-250-4230,” Dillner said.
“Additional bleacher seating is available this year, so load up the family, come join the fun and feel the rumble at the tractor and pickup pull Saturday night south of Holton,” Dillner welcomed.
