Jerry Ray Hairhoger from Lawrence County jumped behind the wheel of his father’s “Jerry-Atricks” to grab a big win in Pittsfield, Pennsylvania on Friday night. The 1973 Kenworth is owned by Jerry Hairhoger of New Galilee, Pennsylvania and is powered by a C-15 Caterpillar. “Jerry-Atricks” is a former regional point champion with USA-EAST Sled Pulling.
Runner-up at the Warren County Fair was the current Big Rigs point leader, Jeff Lautenan from Ashtabula County, Ohio with “Moody Blue” a Pete with CAT power that was the winner last week-end in New York.
The event marked the Big Rigs debut of Nate August “Work N Progress”, a CAT powered 1994 Kenworth. This truck is the reigning champion with the USA-EAST PA Posse division that was disbanded in 2022. August made the decision to move up to the Big Rigs but encountered significant parts supply issues that led to the truck’s tardy arrival in the series.
New York trucks rounded out the top five as the two entries from the Jeffries Team from Wyoming, NY participated in Pittsfield. The “Bad Dog” Mack Superliner with V-8 Mack power was 4th while the GMC General with a 3406 CAT called “General Stupidity” was fifth with Chris Jeffries on the Controls.
