NFMS to Enforce Turbo Containment Rules; Pre-Inspection Photos Requested

2024 National Farm Machinery Show
Attention NFMS Competitors: In light of the adoption of new turbocharger containment rules and device specifications by the NTPA and other national pulling organizations, the National Farm Machinery Show’s Championship Tractor Pull will require such devices on all turbochargers on competition vehicles in the 2024 event, which runs from Wednesday-Saturday, February 14-17. The following is a release prepared by the NFMS CTP. (Click here for the NTPA’s specifications.)

Happy New Year and Congratulations to your acceptance to the 2024 Farm Machinery Show Championship Tractor Pull-

We understand the fluidity of the newest safety rules regarding turbocharger exhaust.

All of the options already spelled out by PPL and NTPA will be accepted for 2024 CTP.

We would like to receive a photo(s) via email of the exhaust side of your turbocharger AND exhaust pipe inlet from the turbocharger with a manufactured ejection prevention system by Feb 1st for APPROVAL.  If not received, a more indepth tech review by officials will occur and could result in further adaptation to meet compliance. We will have 100% cooperation with these rules

Email your photo(s) to the Championship Tractor Pull Committee (

2024 CTP Turbo Exhaust:

A manufactured exhaust wheel cage assembly must be used in and/or fastened to the exhaust housing with one set of ½ inch bolts installed 90 degrees of each other immediately (may be in pipe) as close to the cage as possible.

Please understand we will work with each of you for an acceptable solution those not already spelled out by the PPL & NTPA specifications.

Thanks for your cooperation-
Championship Tractor Pull Committee

Note: Do not email photos to NTPA Technical Services for approval to pull at the Farm Show. The NFMS Tractor Pull Committee is the sole arbiter of the legality of a containment device at the Championship Tractor Pull.
