The Truck and Tractor Pull is back in action!
By Joshua Nishimoto
Start your engines and pull your hearts out, Bonners Ferry! Mark your calendar for the 2021 Bonners Ferry Tractor Pull. On September 18, the Cascade Pullers, the Pacific Northwest Pullers, and local participants, will roll on down back into town for another pull fest.
Get ready to see antique or modified tractors pull a heavy drag with pulse-pounding, earth-shaking action! Rev your engines for the heaviest and most powerful motorsport on the planet. These multi-engine modified tractor pullers are ready to put their pedals to the metal and haul their load as fast as possible.
These competition-level tractors might look like standard-issue farm equipment, but the similarities stop at the basic body and tires. Tractor pulling is a sport based on horsepower and torque. All tractors in their respective classes will pull a set weight in the drag. Get ready for the "full pull" as the tractors cross the finish line at the 330-foot line. Feel the earth pound as the contestants add weight to the drag. You’ll be sitting at the edge of your seat when multiple tractors take to the track for the pull-off and see who can pull the drag the furthest.
Come on down to the Bonner County Fairgrounds for family friendly fun, and be sure to check your local listings and follow the Bonners Ferry Truck and Tractor Pull Facebook page for updates: Facebook.com/Bonners-Ferry-Truck-Tractor-Pull. The festivities will commence at 6pm and conclude at 9:30pm.
And don’t forget that parking on the left side of the fairgrounds (by the old mill) is designated parking for pullers only and will be closed to the public. Please park as close and considerately to each other on the south side of the fairgrounds and along the dike as you possibly can!
