MEMBERSHIP TYPES

Competition License

A year-long competition license with the NTPA is a great value for pullers who intend to regularly compete at NTPA events, regardless of circuit level. A competition license bestows driving privileges at NTPA sanctioned events to whom the license is assigned only. This license type enables a competitor to enter his or her vehicle in an NTPA-sanctioned class for which it qualifies, pull for available prize money, and be insured while on the track. Competitors must be at least 16 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All competition license holders receive insurance coverage, a subscription to The Puller magazine (the official publication of the NTPA), a printed copy of NTPA Pulling Rules, a competition license card, and NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

Crewperson License

With each NTPA vehicle registration, two free crewperson licenses are assigned to a vehicle. Additional crewperson licenses are available for purchase through the NTPA office. Crewperson licenses do not have driving privileges under any circumstances but do have insurance coverage while crewing for NTPA registered vehicles on the track. Crewpersons must be at least 14 years of age, but those under the age of 18 must have either a parent’s or guardian’s written consent. All crewperson license holders receive insurance coverage and a crewperson license card, however only paid crewpersons receive a subscription to The Puller magazine and NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

All NTPA Tech Officials must hold a valid tech official license, complete an NTPA Tech School, and pass their SFI Safety Test to earn their SFI certification. All tech official license holders receive insurance coverage, NTPA Tech Official gear, a subscription to The Puller magazine, a printed copy of NTPA Pulling Rules, and a tech official license card. All tech official assignments are at the discretion of the NTPA and/or its member states.

If you’re interested in becoming a 2022 NTPA Tech Official, plan to attend an NTPA Tech School, which are listed on the Tech page here.

Entry Clerk License

All NTPA Entry Clerks must hold a valid entry clerk license and complete an NTPA Entry School. All entry clerk license holders receive insurance coverage, a subscription to The Puller magazine (the official publication of the NTPA), and an entry clerk license card. All entry clerk assignments are at the discretion of the NTPA and/or its member states.

If you’re interested in becoming a 2022 NTPA Entry Clerk, plan to attend an NTPA Entry School, which are listed on the Tech page here.

Associate Membership

An associate NTPA membership is a great option for someone heavily involved in NTPA truck and tractor pulling who doesn’t necessarily fit into one of the categories above (e.g., event announcers, photographers or videographers, event volunteers, or fans etc.) All associate members receive insurance coverage, a subscription to The Puller magazine, an associate member card, and NTPA shield patch(es) and decal(s).

Apply for a 2022 NTPA Associate Membership online here or download a printable form.

DISCLAIMER: The licenses listed above are intended for use as competition entry only and are not season passes. Credentials will be issued upon entry at events only. The NTPA and its Board of Directors have the discretion to deny issuance of a license to any current or prospective membership.

VEHICLE REGISTRATION

An NTPA vehicle registration allows a competition vehicle to compete in any NTPA-sanctioned class for which it qualifies, given the vehicle is up to date with required safety equipment, it passes an on-site technical inspection by an NTPA-licensed tech official, and all applicable event entry fees are paid. The primary driver of a registered vehicle must hold a valid competition license for the vehicle to receive points.

A vehicle registration at the Grand National or Regional National/State level allows that vehicle to accumulate championship points in classes on a national or member-state circuit that are sanctioned at a matching level (GN or RN/S). Points may also be earned toward bonus programs and/or invitational event berths. A vehicle may not earn points on both the GN and RN circuits within the same season, but an RN-registered vehicle may earn points in two or more regions within the same season.

Registration levels cannot be changed after June 1, and no new Grand National vehicles will be allowed after July 1.

Complete a 2022 NTPA Vehicle Registration online here or download a printable form.

NTPA PER-HOOK

Interested participants who do not hold a current NTPA competition license, or those vehicles which are not actively registered with the NTPA, may enter NTPA competition if they complete an NTPA per-hook at the event site. This consists of a per-hook form and a $100 per-hook fee, plus applicable entry fees, for each session entered at the event.

The per-hook option is only available to those vehicles and drivers that have passed NTPA tech and have all NTPA paperwork in order, i.e. rollcage, turbine, etc. Per-hook participants are bound by the same rules and regulations as NTPA competition license-holders and registered vehicles, and while eligible for event purse monies, will receive no points for their competition run.

NTPA per-hook paperwork must be completed at each event at the NTPA entry trailer.

1979 GN FWD Champion Leon Ashcraft Has Passed

WPI/NTPA is saddened to report the passing on Sunday, November 14 of Leon Ashcraft, 82, of Mt. Vernon, Ohio. Mr. Ashcraft drove the "Gold Digger" Chevrolet in national and state-level Four Wheel Drive competition from 1976 to 1982 and captured both the Grand National and Region II 6,500-lb. Open championships in 1979.

Mr. Ashcraft spent 60 years working in the oil and gas industry and co-owned AP Production & Service, LLC. He also enjoyed mowing and baling hay on the farm and bow hunting. He attended Mt. Vernon Baptist Temple.

He won Fort Recovery, Ohio in his inaugural national season before tearing up the 1977 Southern winter circuit with double wins in Tifton, Georgia and Dothan, Alabama. He returned to the region each year through 1980 to score several blue ribbons in Florida, all of the above being NTPA member states.

In the summer of '77, Mr. Ashcraft reached the winner's circle in Bowling Green, Ohio for his first Grand National class victory. He added a win on that series in 1978 in Cayuga, Ontario before breaking through with six GN firsts in his title-winning 1979 campaign. In that era, the relatively new Four Wheel Drive division pulled at 5,500 and 6,500 lbs. and in both Super Stock and Open (today's Modified), and in the same year in which he doubled up at 6,500, he also claimed second in 55 SS, 55 Open, and 65 SS.

In addition to his wife Karen of 62 years, Mr. Ashcraft is survived by his children Jeri (John) Garner, Eric (Jenni), and Chris (Jen); grandchildren Ryan (Britney) McCollough, Mandi (Joel) Nash, Johnny (Stephanie) Garner, Amy (Eric) Andrews, Emily Collins, Sarah (Brandt) Webster, Abbi and Cassie Ashcraft, and Grace and Caleb Ashcraft; and 11 great-grandchildren; and sisters Patti (Stan) Zimmer and Nancy Hanger. Mr. Ashcraft's full obituary may be found here.

Visitation for Mr. Ashcraft's family and friends is scheduled for Wednesday, November 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Faith Baptist Church, 8764 Martinsburg Road, in Mt. Vernon. His funeral service will be held at the church on Thursday at 1 p.m. followed by a Celebration of Life at the church's Family Center.

Our sympathy is extended to Karen and the Ashcraft family as they mourn.

Kenny Smith, Super Stock Competitor and Pro National Champion, Has Passed

The WPI/NTPA office has been notified of the passing on Monday, November 8 of Kenneth G. Smith, 85, of Caledonia, Ohio. Mr. Smith was a competitor for more than two decades in the Super Stock division. His John Deeres were known in latter seasons as "Deere Harvester" and were copiloted by his son Mike.

A lifelong farmer, Mr. Smith was a collector of tractors bearing his favorite color. He was a faithful member of Trinity Baptist Church as well as the Ohio Two-Cylinder Club and the Classic Green Club.

His first entry in the NTPA records read simply, "12,000 Stock. 1. Kenny Smith, Marion, Ohio, driving a J.D. 4020." That the event was the 1971 National Tractor Pulling Championships in Bowling Green, Ohio is a fact whose importance would increase in stature over time, in parallel with Mr. Smith's own pulling career. He won BG again in 1972, this time as a reigning Ohio State Tractor Pullers Association champion in both the 9,000- and 12,000-lb. Super Stock classes. He finished seventh at both of those weight breaks in Grand National competition in 1974 and continued to finish in the top 10 in both through 1976, a span over which he collected seven GN event wins including two at the Ohio State Fair.

After a couple of years spent focusing on regional competition, three more GN wins came in 1979 including another at near-hometown Columbus, just 50 miles from his Marion County farm. But while this "John Deere man, through and through" tilled the land of central Ohio, he effectively owned western Kentucky, posting four wins in a 10-year span at the National Farm Machinery Show Championship Pull in Louisville.

He rose as high as third place in the 75 Super in 1983 on the strength of four more victories including Columbus (of course) as well as Tomah and Elkhorn, Wisconsin and Davenport, Iowa. By this time, his Deeres had evolved through 4020, 4230, and 4010 editions to the 4320 that had attained its nickname by virtue of an odd coupling: an International Harvester cylinder head mated to a John Deere block. The combination was successful at the state, regional, and Grand National levels as Kenny and Mike split the driving duties through 1992, claiming the 1990 Pro National title in the 7,500-lb. class.

Mr. Smith is survived by the mother of his children, Jerry Sandman; their children Mike (Denise) Smith and Chris (John Harmon) Federer; his sister Diana K. (Stu Ervay) Mitchell; grandchildren Tina (Diego) Gross, Nathan (Lauren) Smith, Lindsay (Tom) Weston, Whitney (Matt) Blankenship, Adam (Jen) Huddle, and Kenneth Chase (Stacey) Huddle; and 15 great grandchildren.

Visitation for family and friends will be from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 14 at Snyder Funeral Homes, Denzer Chapel, 360 East Center Street, Marion, Ohio. Mr. Smith's funeral service will be Monday at the funeral home at 10 a.m. If so desired, donations may be made to Trinity Baptist Church. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com.

Our hearts go out to Mike and the Smith family on the occasion of their loss.

Nancy Obermeyer, Longtime Columnist for The Puller, Has Died

The WPI/NTPA office is saddened to report the passing on Thursday, September 30 of Nancy Obermeyer, 85, of Kokomo, Indiana. Mrs. Obermeyer was the wife of longtime competitor and NTPA charter member Richard Obermeyer and a regular contributor to The Puller, the Association's official magazine, during the 1970s.

Mr. and Mrs. Obermeyer operated their family farm near Kokomo for decades until his death in 2006. Mr. Obermeyer was the treasurer at the founding of the NTPA in 1969 and continued in this office until 1978 as the organization's membership grew exponentially and advanced into dozens of states.

Mrs. Obermeyer embraced Richard's critical leadership role in the pursuit of his hobby, and she soon took on one of her own with her monthly columns, "The Puller's Wife" and "Women's Section." Part autobiographies, part interview features, part road trip anthologies, and part advice columns, Mrs. Obermeyer's writings kept the "better halves" of many teams entertained and engaged as she introduced them to countless competitors and their fellow pullers' spouses/girlfriends as well as their families.

She and Mr. Obermeyer were also involved in presenting the Indy Super Pull invitational event during much of its run from the mid-1970s through the early 1990s. She later became an officer with the Kokomo YWCA, serving as its president and as a representative on that organization's national board.

Mrs. Obermeyer's complete obituary may be found here.

Our condolences rest upon the Obermeyer family as they fondly remember Nancy's full life. The pulling world and its written record are both far richer for the time she devoted to them.

Jean Everett, Wife of WPI Executive George, Has Died; Update: Funeral Info

A visitation and viewing for family and friends is set for the Light Memorial Chapel, 585 East Main Street in Monrovia on Wednesday, September 15 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Thursday from 10 a.m. until her funeral at 11 a.m.

Robert Martin, GN Pro Stock Competitor, Has Passed; Update: Funeral Info

It is our sad duty to report the passing on Wednesday, September 8 of Robert L. Martin, 75, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Mr. Martin, his son Josh, and the Martin Family Pulling Team have driven the "John Deere Green," "Think Green," "Dairy Deere," and "That Darn Deere" Pro Stocks over several stints on the NTPA Grand National circuit.

Mr. Martin, a south-central Pennsylvania dairy farmer, first topped the results column in NTPA competition in the 7,500-lb. Super Stock class in Galax, Virginia in 1997. That season, he and his "Dairy Deere" 4255 competed within the NTPA's northeastern Region I and finished fifth in the final standings.

Two winters later, he was the winner of the Wednesday night Pro Stock heat at the National Farm Machinery Show Championship Tractor Pull in Louisville, Kentucky. Once he was fully devoted to the single-charger division, he posted victories and high season finishes with various pulling organizations and at several invitational events including his home-state Keystone Nationals, which he dominated in 2008 and 2009.

In 2013, Mr. Martin finished sixth and seventh in the GN points, having earned a second-place finish with "Think Green" in season-opening Hutchinson, Minnesota. He returned to NTPA competition in 2019 to run the entire Grand National circuit and finished ninth and 11th with "Think Green" and "John Deere Green." The highlight of his final season of competition was his first GN victory---earned at very nearly his hometown track, Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland---as he and Josh went one-two on Saturday night with "John Deere Green" and "Think Green." The whole class, in fact, was a family affair, as Josh's wife Brandi placed 10th with "Dairy Deere" and Matt Dorty took "That Darn Deere" to 11th.

Mr. Martin is survived by his wife Patsy, sons Bobby (Wendy) and Josh (Brandi); grandsons Cody (Quinn) Martin and Christopher Hammond; a great-granddaughter Adalynn; brothers Ray (Gloria) and Garry (Vicki); and sisters Ruth Bradley and Peggy Porter. His full obituary may be found here.

A public viewing is scheduled for Sunday, September 12 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the Fogelsanger-Bricker Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc., 112 West King Street, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. Mr. Martin's Celebration of Life will be held at a later time.

The WPI/NTPA family mourns with Patsy, Bobby, Josh, and the entire Martin family on the loss of a gentleman and sportsman.

One Final Hoop for TWD, Plus SF and SSD, at Thunder in the Corn

HoopestonILColumbus, Ohio---Together, America, we pulled through. Welcome back to Hoopeston!

In conjunction with the Hoopeston FFA Alumni, the National Tractor Pullers Association will present Thunder in the Corn on Friday and Saturday, September 3-4 at the McFerren Park Annex in Hoopeston, Illinois. The four-division Grand National event will be conducted in two sessions starting each night at 7 p.m.

In NTPA Championship Pulling, vehicles drag a 20-ton weight transfer sled along a straight, dirt track as the sled's resistance increases. Within a class of similar vehicles, the puller who achieves the greatest distance is victorious. At events across the United States, elite competitors campaign their specialized machines---which resemble farm tractors, trucks, and dragsters---for chances at purse money and precious points toward end-of-season championships.

2021 marks the 52nd year of NTPA Championship Pulling, the world's original and number-one circuit for premier-level truck and tractor pulling events. Come to Hoopeston and fill your senses with the sights of glistening graphics, the sounds of mechanical might, the scents of exhausted energy, and the spirit of American achievement.

Grand National Super Stock Diesel and Super Farm Tractors and Two-Wheel-Drive Trucks will appear in both sessions of Thunder in the Corn, while Regional National Four-Wheel-Drive Trucks will appear in Saturday's Session Two only. In addition to the event purse, all will compete for championships in either the NTPA's Grand National Series presented by Case IH Agriculture or in Region II and in pursuit of berths in the 34th Enderle Memorial Pull-Off on Saturday, September 18 in Urbana, Ohio. The NTPA's all-star invitational will feature over 100 of the nation's toughest competitors. Visit NTPAPULL.com/Contest to enter the Case IH/NTPA Superfan Sweepstakes to win a trip for two to the Enderle or to the Case IH Experience Center in Racine, Wisconsin.

WPI/NTPA is saddened to report the passing on Tuesday, August 24 of David Garrett, 49, of Sunbury, North Carolina. Mr. Garrett drove the "One More Time" Ford in national and United Pullers of the Carolinas competition.

Mr. Garrett was employed by the Colony Tire Corporation of Suffolk, Virginia as a commercial sales representative. He was a member of two hunt clubs and enjoyed many outdoor activities.

Across a decade-long career in Four Wheel Drive, Mr. Garrett piloted "One More Time" to three Region IV victories in his home state: Benson's inaugural Mule City 300 in 2014, Elizabeth CIty's 300 in 2016, and Raleigh's State Fair Southern Showdown in 2019.

He is survived by his wife Mary Leigh of 22 years, his son Dylan, his daughters Faith Thorne (Trey Chappell) and Miranda Thorne, his sister Brenda, and five grandchildren. His full obituary may be found here.

A graveside service for Mr. Garrett is scheduled for Saturday, August 28 at 11 a.m. at Oak Grove Christian Church Cemetery on Folly Road in Sunbury. No formal visitation has been scheduled.

Our hearts go out to Mary Leigh, the entire Garrett family, and David's many friends in UPOC in their time of sorrow.
