The National Farm Machinery Show Championship Tractor Pull is known as the premiere indoor pulling event in the country. Held inside Freedom Hall at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the Championship Tractor Pull combines a little art and a little science while building on strong traditions. The combination of talented drivers and breathtaking machines contributes to an awesome entertainment event for enthusiastic fans.
The first Championship Tractor Pull was held in 1969 in conjunction with the fourth National Farm Machinery Show, making it the oldest large-scale indoor pull in North America. The invitation-only event brings together powerful and innovative machines from both inside and out of the U.S. and draws sellout crowds for nearly every one of the week’s performances. The basketball court in Freedom Hall is converted into the championship dirt track for the week. And the drivers are transformed from mere truck and tractor enthusiasts to something akin to rocket riders wearing fireproof suits and racing helmets.
