The Big Butler Fair was meeting us in the pouring rain last night for an amazing night of truck and tractor pulling. Last night was the first of two shows here in Butler and our first class of the night was the Gahr & Tire Sponsored Triple Crown Gas Class. Yesterday was hook number three for our street legal gas class. The class itself had 12 hooks all together. Matt Moser finished in the first place position with his 1976 Ford named White Whiskey. White Whiskey had a solid pass out at 343.01 feet. Cody Barnes is most definitely a risk to run against in the class. Barnes and his 2007 Superduty, Flight Risk #2, took the second place finish at 324.73 feet. Barnes worked hard to fly down the track last night. Rounding out the top 3 was Sean Matteson and his 1972 F250 Old Blue. Matteson was only four feet behind Barnes, finishing at 320.44 feet. The 12 Triple Crown Gas trucks put on one hell of a show for the biggest turnout we’ve seen all year.
The Hot Farm class was most definitely hot last night. The Hubner Seed Hot Farms had an astounding 13 in the class last night. Our 2021 Rookie of the Year, Mike Tyhonas, took His first ever win in the FPP Hot Farm Class. Tyhonas was the first to hook to the sled and the first place in the class with his IH 1066 that he likes to call Charlie’s Angels. The Tyhonas pulling team has put in the work to continue to excel in the class and reach distances out at 297.89. After missing the first hook, Tyhonas sits at 6th in the points. The second place tractor was Adam Smith with his 1962 John Deer he calls Wild Child Express. Smith was out at 288.73 and still holds his first place position in the points. Our 3rd place Hot Farm was Dave Walter and his IH 1066 that he calls Red Power Reloaded. Dave has been consistent and persistent with his runs all season and his hard work took him to 287.64 feet last night to finish 3rd in last night’s lineup and the points. We saw all 13 tractors fight the rain for a great night of competition.
Consider yourself lucky Butler, last night was one of the few chances you’ll get to see the Super Street Gas class in action. Our winner was Doug Berghoff and the 1971 Chevy he calls Old Habits. Though the Super Street Class is not running for points, Doug has been a tough competitor. Doug put 7 feet on top of 2nd place at 296.4 feet. Following Doug, Tiffany Biancardi took second place with Judgement Day. Last night was Tiffany’s first night driving the 2x Points Champion Super Street Gas truck and she drove it like she owned it. Tiffany took Matt Moser’s spot as the alternate driver and she rocked it as one of two ladies in the class. Tiffany took it down the track to 289.96 feet. Following Tiffany for third place was Carson Hollida. His 1982 Chevy named Hooked took third, three feet behind second place. Carson was “hooked” to the sled and took it to 286.71 feet. Competing in this class was no easy task and the top three competitors rocked it.
The Warren Diesel Run What Ya Brung Class was led by a woman last night. Jayden Litman is one of the up and coming drivers of her generation, rocking the RWYB class. Last week’s mishap at New Centerville was a bump in the road and she came back strong to win the class last night at the Big Butler Fair. Jayden was hook number two and she clinched her win early in the show at 285.69 feet. Jayden’ comeback has given her the third place position in the points. Second place was claimed by Rob Forell and his truck he calls Jaded. Rob joined the class after leaving Super Street and he’s been loud and hard to beat. Last night, Rob secured second at 284.27 feet. Rob is currently tied for fourth place in the points. One of our men to beat in 2023 has rounded out the top 3. Nick Headley and Binder Edition finished only 4 feet behind Rob Forrell. Nick has been a top competitor in RWYB and his finish at 280.52 allowed him to stay in first place in the points.
Thank you to all who came out last night to watch and we encourage you to come back for another epic night of truck and tractor pulling here at the Big Butler Fair.
