Columbus, Ohio—Welcome, competitors and fans, to the 53rd championship season of the National Tractor Pullers Association!
The Fort Recovery NTPA Grand Nationals Friday and Saturday, July 28-29 is the collaborative effort of the NTPA and the Ambassador Club of Fort Recovery, Ohio. Held at Ambassador Park in Fort Recovery, the expanded three-session event will star six Grand National divisions and three Regional National divisions on twin tracks. Sessions begin Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m.
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 2023 Fort Recovery Grand Nationals are GN Super Stock Diesel and Super Stock Open Tractors, Two-Wheel-Drive and Super Stock Diesel 4×4 Trucks, and Mini and Unlimited Modifieds as well as RN Light Pro Stock and 4.1 Limited Pro Stock Tractors and multi-engine Modifieds. Competitors in all divisions will pursue Grand National or Region II championships (Light Pros: II-West; Modifieds: II-Southeast) and qualification to appear at the 36th annual Enderle Pull-Off on Saturday, September 16 in Urbana, Ohio.
Session One will include classes of Super Stock Diesel, Super Stock Open, Two Wheel Drive, Super Stock Diesel 4×4, Mini, and Unlimited. Session Two will include Super Stock Open, Light Pro Stock, 4.1 Pro Stock, and Modified.
