Breaking News— Ravenna Ohio – April 2024 —  Michael Ostetrico of Ravenna, Ohio is now the proud owner of “Cat Scratch Fever”, the CAT powered former champion with the USA-EAST Big Rigs Pulling Series.  The sale was a part of the disbursal of the Fred Sanders Pulling Team trucks after the untimely passing of Mr. Sanders earlier this year.  Ostetrico is the owner of MO Power Enterprises of Aurora, Ohio and also competes in the Pro Street division with USA-EAST with a very stout 1994 Peterbilt also powered by C-15 CAT, the specialty at MO Power. 

“Cat Sratch Fever” was formerly driven by Justin Fredo for the Sanders Team and was the USA-EAST Big Rig Champion first in 2014.  The truck then went back-to-back-to back in three years – 2019-2020-2021, the only truck to win three in a row.   Ostetrico indicates that the name will stay the same and that the Sanders colors are expected to be maintained.  Michael has indicated that his will run a limited schedule with the newly acquired “Cat Scratch Fever” this season as well running his stout Pro Street truck as well.  The Big Rigs Pulling Series is looking forward to seeing the both trucks out on the pulling   circuit this summer.
