Saturday night – September 30 – will be a huge night for USA-EAST Sled Pulling as three different champions will be determined during the sanctioned pull at Tri City Raceway Park near Franklin, Pennsylvania.


HOT ROD V-8 TRACTORS  Two tractors are currently tied for the top spot. John Pitts from Minerva, Ohio has his “Outlaw Alice” a AC-D17 with Chevrolet power sitting atop the point race but he is tied with Dean Kibler, a former champion from Hanoverton, Ohio who drives the Case 600 named “

Good Vibrations” and is tied for the top spot. And only seven points back lurks last year’s champion Oscar Trbovich from Waynesburg, Ohio with“Freaky Farmall” featuring 427 SOHC Ford power in a Farmall.


LIMITED PRO/SUPER FARM. That point race is already decided as John Lorenz from Dover, Ohio has pushed his IH966 to a sizeable point advantage. Lorenz has enjoyed the luxury of going through the entire sixteen event season without missing a pull due to breakage – the only tractor in the class to attend 100% of the series events in 2017. Second is Donny Hebethal from Ford City, PA with                            “Mechanically In

clined” coincidentally the exact same IH966 Limited Pro stock design






SUPER STREET GAS 4×4 TRUCKS. Another very close race has shaped up in 2017 as last year’s champion, Mark Petros from Herminie, PA, clings to a four point advantage with his “Public Enemy” Dodge. Right on his heels is “Tragic Magic” from the Jeff Mitchell Pulling Team of Salem, Ohio – a 1977 Ford with 540 cubic inch Ford  Power under the hood and driven by Justin Mitchell…And Only 6 Points back is the Ungertaker” Chevy from New Stanton, PA and Ronny Unger.




In addition to these three ‘Finals’ classes the huge pull at Tri City Raceway Park will also feature the USA-EAST “Run What Ya Brung” trucks and the highly popular Open 2.6 diesel 4×4 trucks as well as a non-sanctioned division for Street Licensed Diesel 4×4 trucks using the ’17 rules for the Triple Crown Series with no front mounted weights permitted.

All of the action at Tri City gets underway at 6:30pm using Richard Love’s “Decision Maker” weight transfer machine.
