Now in its fourth year with USA-EAST, the Classic Super Stock class has become a main stay with the regional series. With load of different types of tractors producing a myriad of colors on the track this division showcases the ingenuity of the various owners and brings a very interesting array of pullers to the track.
Classic Super Stock Tractors emanated from the Central Ohio Pullers as their Division Five class. These tractors by their name must have been built prior to 1970 in order to be legal in this class. The class runs at 7700 lbs. and is permitted to run an engine with a single turbo charger up to 531 cubic inches. A number of other specific rules apply to this class with USA-EAST.
While the 2016 class winner was the Farmall 1206 name “How Do You Like Me Now?” owned by Todd Kendle of New Philadelphia, Ohio the actual driver for the 2016 season was Aaron Westhoefer from Tuscarawas County Ohio. This tractor as also the class winner in 2015.
Classic Super Stocks were sponsored by Hubner Seed again in 2016. Hubner Seed and their regional representative Mike Yoder from Sugarcreek, Ohio provide a vital link between the agricultural community at large and the sport of tractor and truck pulling.
The success of the Classic Super Stock Tractor division in 2016 has paved the way for this class to play a more integral role in USA-EAST pulling in the future.
