As tractors become more technologically advanced, certain divisions have to be made based on upgrades and modifications. One of the iconic classes to sport is Super Stock Tractors. Competitors in the early days of Super Stock would use alcohol, diesel, gasoline or even LP - gas to fuel their machines. Diesel was the premier fuel choice in the 70s and 80s, while other fuels dwindled in popularity. Despite this, Alcohol Tractors continue to battle in Super Stock, showing flashes of outstanding performances in Light Super Stock class. In the late 80s and early 90s, alcohol - fueled Tractors rose to the top of Super Stock Pulling ranks, led by pullers like Bryan and Ernie Conner, alongside Terry Blackbourn and his International / CaseIH machines. By late 90s, pullers were competingand winningwith alcohol - powered tractors, leaving diesel in the dust. Considering the disparity between Diesel and Alcohol Tractors, National Tractor Pulling Association separated fuels in 1999, creating Super Stock Diesel and Super Stock Open divisions. Championship Tractor Pull quickly followed suit by separating classes in 2000. Separation of fuels into different classes was standard until very recently. Improvements in diesel - fuel machines have reignited rivalry between fuels, and the question between fans and pullers now is: who would win in a duel of fuels? In September of 2019 at Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, Colin Ross and his machine, Triple Bypass, set out to answer that very question. Ross Pull in the Unlimited Super Stock class with his Diesel - powered machine, making the case for reunite fuels by winning a division full of alcohol - power heavy hitters. Only a week prior to Ross win, Championship Tractor Pull Committee decided to revert Diesel and Alcohol to a single Super Stock Diesel - Alcohol Tractors class. Classes got to point where only six to seven out of 12 vehicles per class were making good runs. We decided to put them back together so fans can enjoy rivalry once again, Committee member Mike Whitt say. The Super Stock class has a tremendous legacy here, and we want to protect that. By combining classes, fans will not only cheer for a particular brand to win, but also cheer on their favorite diesel or alcohol puller, Kentucky State Fair Board member Ryan Bivens say. Pullers are excited about proving the superiority of their fuel of choice. I think this will be the most exciting class of the weekend. Fans have asked for it and I am excited to see how things play out, Ross say. Jordan Lustik, winner of multiple titles in Super Stock class on Silver Bullet, agrees with Ross and say, I love it. I think Super Stock class will be the hottest ticket of the weekend. As tractors become more technologically advanced, certain divisions have to be made based on upgrades and modifications. One of the iconic classes to sport is Super Stock Tractors.

Dave Bennett has been announcing at Championship Tractor Pull at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville for six years. But he has been around sport for decades. Dave is a former puller who was also parts department manager at Livingston Machinery, AGCO dealership in Chickasha, Okla., For 25 years. So he knows tractors, and he knows pulling. Thats why we ask him to do Q & with us. How would you describe Championship Tractor Pull to someone who is not familiar? We 've referred to it as the Super Bowl of Pulling for many, many years because that is the only place that brings together National champions from three major sanctioning bodies of Tractor Pulling, as well as State and local level pullers. The only place that all those calibers, even the world, can come together. Strictly by invitation. You have to fill out a form and say I would like to compete at your event, the National Farm Machinery Show. And then the committee takes all those thousands of applications and adds them together, Theyre all in various classes, but theyll average over thousand total applications in all classes combine. And they will go through and pick out National champions such as Joe Eder. And so committee pull out cream of crop right off top, number one, number two, number three guys in National Tractor Pulling Association, Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League, Outlaw Tractor Pulling Assocation, such as that. Then they will drop down to State associations and pull out champions from certain various recognizable State associations. Then they look outside the country, Is there somebody from the Netherlandswhich we had there this yearand of course, from Canada. And they keep working their way down through this list of applicants. So that is how you get into Louisville. I was raised on a farm, lived on farm, still on the same farm, and back in the 60s I was your typical street racer, 67 Mustang, burning tires off of it, this and that and other. I was working at an automotive parts store and an old boy brought in brochure for Tractor Pull and I had never heard of em, didnt know anything about it, That was in 1976. And I went to that show out of curiosity and all of sudden I heard this hotrod motor bust off and that got my attention immediately. And at that point it didnt make difference what the world was going to do, I was going to have one of those machines. In 1976, I Pull my first modify out of my shop that I built myself and then I started competing at State level. I won State Association, My wife started driving and she won State Association in modified class one year, and by 1980 I was doing more announcing than pulling.
