Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
As one of the nation’s top indoor tractor pulls, the Championship Tractor Pull at the 2014 Western Farm Show will present truck and tractor drivers with many unique challenges compared to outdoor events, adding to fan fun and excitement at this highly popular competition.
Scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights, Feb. 21-22, at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo., the event will feature 125 drivers and vehicles from throughout the Midwest, with $56,000 in prize money at stake. Each night features a different show with a total of 10 competing truck and tractor classes, including Light Super Stock Tractors, Super Farm Tractors, Modified Tractors, Pro Stock Trucks and Tractors, and the powerful Super Stock Tractors.
“The Championship Tractor Pull offers well-rounded entertainment for the whole family, not just the gear heads who enjoy the mechanics of the sport,” says Dave Bennett, the voice of the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association of Carthage, Mo., which stages the event in partnership with the Western Farm Show.
Bennett says indoor tractor pulls offer a whole different experience than outdoor pulls, putting driver skills to the test and revving up fan enthusiasm.
Fans can meet many of the drivers and see their machines on display from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22, at Kemper Arena. Access to this midday display is open only to attendees of the Western Farm Show. Tickets to the Western Farm Show and to the tractor pull are sold separately.
The 2014 Western Farm Show is scheduled Friday through Sunday, Feb. 21-23, at the American Royal Complex adjacent to Kemper Arena. It will once again feature over 500 exhibitors and more
than 400,000 square feet of floor space filled with the latest farm equipment and other agricultural products. Other attractions include the Stockmanship and Stewardship Low-Stress Livestock Handling Demonstration, FFA Day, the Health & Safety Roundup, Family Living Center and much more.
