Columbus, Ohio—Welcome, competitors and fans, to the 53rd championship season of the National Tractor Pullers Association!
The Lions Super Pull of the South on Friday and Saturday, July 21-22, is the collaborative effort of the NTPA and the Chapel Hill Lions Club of Chapel Hill, Tennessee. Conducted at Lions Motorsports Park in Chapel Hill, the two-session Super National event will star five Grand National National divisions beginning at 7 p.m. each night.
NTPA Championship Pulling brings together skilled competitors, dynamic machines, and ardent fans for outrageous displays of horsepower at fairgrounds and festivals across the United States. Specialized tractors, trucks, and dragsters tow a heavy metal sled along a straight, dirt track as the sled’s resistance increases. Within a class of similar vehicles, the one that pulls the sled the farthest is the winner. Pullers spend long nights traveling, wrenching, and tuning to put on the best show and take their best shot at prize money and season championships.
Scheduled to appear at the Lions Super Pull of the South are classes of Super Stock Diesel and Pro Stock Tractors, Four-Wheel-Drive Trucks; and KPXA Mini and Unlimited Multi-Engine Modifieds. All will compete for championships on the NTPA’s Grand National Circuit presented by Case IH and qualification to appear at the 36th annual Enderle Pull-Off on Saturday, September 16 in Urbana, Ohio.
Moreover, Chapel Hill represents the next stop on the 2023 Hot Shot’s Secret Challenge for all appearing divisions. Top three finishers in the bonus series will be rewarded at its conclusion in the Bowling Green, Ohio winners circle in August.
Fans will be kept informed and entertained by the NTPA’s Mobile Videoboard, which will present multi-camera live video, replays, driver and vehicle identifications, and distances. Can’t be there in person? Check out NTPA.tv for the broadcast, available both live and on-demand. Several Hutchinson classes will also be featured as part of the 19th season of “NTPA Championship Pulling” on RFD-TV.
Tickets may be purchased from the event’s website (www.LionsSuperPull.com). No coolers may be brought onto the grounds. Gates open at 4 p.m., and access to the pit, exhibit, and vending areas is included in admission.
