Tractor Pull a Feature of Fair This Year

Jamie Ringley, who's director at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds, said he's tried for years to get a tractor pull during the Sheridan County Fair.

This year, he said, that will happen. The Old Timers Tractor Pull Association will stage the event starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, in the main arena at the fairgrounds.

Dean Roberts, who's one of the organizers of the event, explained how it came about.

Roberts said the tractors owned by the association are genuine antiques, dating to 1960 or older, but a lot of them are also still in use and will be coming in from the field. He said the tractor pull association has been around for a long time.

The pull is a competition in which the tractors pull weighted sleds. The show is scheduled to go until around 4 p.m. Roberts said the event won't be limited just to members of the association. He said if someone has a tractor and wants to bring it, they'll be welcome.
