2017 Harvest Festival Tractor Pull

On Sunday, Sept. 17, the Platte Valley Tractor Pullers came to Gothenburg to compete at the Roping Arena. Ross Bartlett and the Gothenburg Chamber hosted the pull, which had 75 competitors from three states: Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.

The pull offered weight classes from 2500 to 10,500 pounds, with Divisions 1—5 and a team event called the Double Tree Event. In the Double Tree event two tractors were paired together, one over 5,000 lbs. and one under 5,000. The two competitors must work together to pull the sled the furthest.

Results from the Pull can be found in the Sept. 27 edition of The Gothenburg Times.
