Now in its fifth year with USA-EAST, the Classic Super Stock class has become a mainstay with the regional series. With loads 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 turbocharger up to 531 cubic inches. A number of other specific rules apply to this class with USA-EAST.
The 2017 point champion was David Spillman from Spillman Farms of Boliver, Ohio in northern Tuscarawas County. This well prepared John Deere named “Smokin’ Ace” had an excellent season in 2017 while capturing the point race and five individual victories through the season
Classic Super Stocks are sponsored by Hubner Seed again in 2018. 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 has paved the way for this class to play a more integral role in USA-EAST pulling in the future.
