Hot Rod V-8 Tractor CLASS

Now in its sixth year with USA-EAST the Hot Rod V-8 Tractor class has quickly become one of the most popular divisions both with the fans and with the various fairs that now demand that the class comes to pull at their events.

Hot Rod V-8 Tractors are built on older style tractor frames with high-powered single V-8 engines from automobiles and light trucks. The frame and sheet metal must be pre-1972 to be legal. By rule, all engines may be no larger than 521 cubic inches. So it is not uncommon to see a Massy-Harris 44 with a 472 cubic inch Cadillac motor or a Case 600 with a 478 built up Chevrolet engine. This is where the appeal to the class lies.

Individual owners can choose their combination. They can prepare their tractor within the rules to their own specification. And they can now compete in major league pulling events with USA-EAST.

One of the newcomers became the class champion in 2019 as Louis Roy from Imperial, Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh airport area) took the crown. Louis became the first-ever Keystone state based driver to lay claim to the top spot with his IH 706 named “Mad Jack” with Big Block Chevrolet power.

Cen.Pe.Co. Lubricants provided end-of-season bonus bucks to the Hot Rod V-8 division again in 2019. The Central Petroleum Company of Cleveland, Ohio, and Wolcott, Iowa has been a consistent supporter of this class since it began.
