The schedule for the opening night features pedal tractor pulls for children, antique tractor pulls for machines that were manufactured in 1961 or older and a garden tractor pull sanctioned by the Southern Indiana Pulling Association.

Five classes are featured June 18, starting with 11,500-pound A and P pump open farm tractors (no JD big blocks), limited pro stock diesel trucks, hot farm tractors, super farm tractors and 8,000-pound open diesel trucks.

The limited pro stock diesel trucks, hot farm and super farm tractor classes will be sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.

All pullers must be present a half-hour before pull starts for a mandatory drivers meeting.
